Beading Babes - Four leaf clover bracelet

I've joined this lovely little group of "Beading Babes", and this is the first project that I've managed to find time to participate in. We were given the choice of two patterns - could make both if we wanted - and I decided to make the very beautiful Four Leaf Clover cuff by Helena Tang Lim.

Originally I wanted to make a whole heap of these bracelets/cuffs in lots of different colourways, and I was going to mix it up as far as design goes ....  but life seriously got in the way. The colours I chose are the very beautiful, and elegant, grey and white. Using clear AB seedies, and a lovely smokey grey as the secondary seedie, I set about incorporating white and light grey Swaro pearls and alternating them. To fit in with the smokey grey I used a dark grey 8mm pearl for the clasp.

I absolutely adored making this cuff, and I really hope that I'll get more of a chance to make more of these very soon. Thankyou Karyn for organising these little challenges, and thankyou Helena for sharing your beautiful tutorials with us. oxoxox

My first thought was "elegant" and that was before I read other comments. Beautiful work.
