Pip Bead Jewellery

OK I may have became hooked, I blame Sarah Millsop and Ruth Mackie - McCartan both bad influences, I found I needed something relaxing for evenings and something that would allow me to be creative as I grew with it.
I played for a while, different beads different findings different chains and yet I kept coming back to the same, I loved the cords and weaving and the surprising one for me was a needle and thread.
So P bought some pip beads, not really knowing what to do with them I started to play.
this is my first attempt, I believe is was made using a flat know technique for the braid and then I played around until I got the beads the way I liked them by adding to the cords.

I think it turned out pretty dont you?

Do you have a tutorial for the beautiful bracelet or can you let me know where I could find something similar.

Good morning Jak. You are so clever I would not know where
to start even with the cord. Beautiful. Still waiting for more
