Jewelry: Flat Spiral Beaded Bracelet

3 yards of Fireline (6 lb. test)
11/o TOHO round ceylon lavender seed beads
11/o fuchsia seed beeds
56 4mm pink Swarovski pearls
28 6mm mauve Swarovski pearls
silver lobster clasp
beading mat
chain nose pliers

This bracelet...alas! too large for my wrist, so I'm going to have to either sell this or give it away.  I need to, if making a bracelet for myself, use only 24 6mm and 48 4mm beads instead.  However, I plan to create on my next attempt a triple row of this bracelet to make a cuff which for myself would translate into 72 6mm beads and 144 4mm beads.
