Bugles and right angle weave

It’s been a really nice day. I “got stuff done,” and had some time to play with beads, and time to read a novel. Here’s the result of the playing:

I’d like to make this into a bracelet, but I would like to simplify the method. I would want this on the diagonal, like in the picture. These are size 1 Japanese bugles, size 15s to cushion them, and size 11 beads on the top of the points.

I have a dislike of clasps that stand out as different from the rest of the piece. What would be ideal is if the edges would just seamlessly go together without any visible clasp. That’s not happening. The alternative is to make the clasp some sort of focal point. Hmm. I’ll have to think on it.
