Day 39: Caribe Bracelet

Another fine and fun bracelet from Fusion Beads.  I wanted to use some of my different clasps so I chose this one to cut my teeth on.  It took some time to even it up and make it fit.  It used every bead they called for, too, because I didn't make it like they did with a lobster clasp and extension chain. 

I used the size 8 Caribe Mix seed beads like they did, but bought gold plated five hole spacer which saved a lot over Sterling Silver.  I also used a GP slide type clasp with 5 loops instead of a SS 5 to 1 connector which made mine much shorter.  I am pleased with it because it fits snugly on my small wrist.  It is a pretty bracelet.
