The beading is done in RAW (raw angle weave) - which is one of the softest and most flexible of the beaded weaves.
I will start with some photos of the final item.
The 2 photos above show one side of the clasp - both the top and bottom.
This is a genuine Swarovski clasp - transparent with embedded Swarov crystals. (Normally found on lingerie but works perfectly well here too.)
This photo here shows the other end of the clasp.
The beaded piece (being so flexible and "soft") is folded to fit the clasp.
I have further sewn down part of the over-lapping sides for more secureness.
A matching ribbon attaches from beaded area to loop in clasp.
The bracelet has been made to fit a small (wrist) size: 17.5 cm (approx. 7 inch)
The center part has been made with lots or wrapped crystals, intermingling with lots of Swarovski (bicone 4mm) crystals and Swarovski pearls.
The wire wrapped crystals are faceted flat tear-drop crystals. Each bead is wire-wrapped to provide a loop at the top, and the spirals are formed at the end of the wrapping. (opt) A dab of glue can be put under each spiral for additional security and to ensure the wire does not catch when worn. The wire is pure copper.
All the wrapped beads are made first and then they are attached on via the wire as that wire is wrapped around the center of the bracelet, forming a gathered portion.
These photos here below are close-ups of the center part.
This photo is a close-up to show the side of this bracelet. It displays the random hand-wrapping of the wire around the center of the bracelet.
