Swarovski crystal and gold delica bracelet, take three

It’s finally finished.  Of course I incorrectly calculated the number of rows I would need, but fortunately I erred on too many.  I thought I would need 99, based on the number of rows I’ve needed in the past for a bracelet made just from Delicas.  Apparently, the Swarovski crystals added more width, so I only needed 89.  I was able to remove the excess rows without damaging the piece.  The next step will be to add beads around the piece to cover up any sewing that might show and to give it a more finished look.
