Snake Bracelet

I saw the instructions for the snake at Emily's site:  http://beadwork.miningco.com/library/weekly/aa082498.htm and I thought it would make a great bracelet. So, after finding the size 14 gold plated seed beads that I wanted, I followed the instructions but made the body long enough to wrap around my wrist a few times.  Before stitching the head closed I slid in some 20gauge gold plated wire so the bracelet would hold its shape.  The scan just doesn't show the vibrance of the gold beads.
