Bead bracelet tutorial

I wanted to make a bracelet using fresh spring colours so I chose a combination of white and green beads.  
This tutorial is fairly simple and I think the diagrams explain the steps well so I haven’t included any written instructions. If anyone does need some tips please don’t hesitate to contact me! 

For this bracelet I used: 
2m of fishing wire 
165 white 1mm beads 
44 green 4mm bicone beads 
22 green 6mm long tube beads 
Metal clasp and three metal loops 
Pliers to add the metal clasp to the bracelet 

This makes a 14.5cm long bracelet, which is a bit on the small side. You can always add extra metal loops on the end so the length can be adjusted (or use more beads).
