wire and bead bracelet

shhh!! don't tell anyone but this was a salvaged failed design! It was supposed to be the second of the pair of these beaded coiled ear loops.

 But the coil had been wound with too much slack and ended up much larger than the first and I preferred the first earring so I stretched the coil out with the idea that I would dismantle it to re-use the beads, but realised that actually the stretched look worked as a bracelet, it just needed a bit of trimming down and a clasp attaching to come up with this!
