Good Review by Christine

I was a beginning beader when I took on this project. It took me a while to get my tension suitable and had to start over a few times with the rivoli bezel. But once you get it down, the bracelet is an absolute stunner. The sequins can sometimes be difficult to find but they do make the bracelet pop. If you've got the time (as with all intricate beading projects), this bracelet is well worth making.
