Simplicity at it's best bracelet

I made this bracelet from a pattern in one of my bead books. I have made a total of four of them. The first one took me about 3 hours (I had to learn a new stitch) and then I had to take it apart because the clasp was not right.  By the time I got to the fourth one, I could make it without looking at the directions and it took me less than an hour!

The bracelet is made out of bugle beads and cubes.  The clasp is made out of a button and peyote stitching.  When I think about how simple this was, I realize that this bracelet could be made using all types and sizes of seed beads!  I think I am going to have some fun experimenting with this one!
