    Expand the Circle: Continue adding SuperDuo beads and 11/0 seed beads, following the herringbone stitch technique to develop a tubular shape.
    Build the Tubular Design: As you progress, add different colors of SuperDuo beads to create a pattern, ensuring the tubular shape is forming correctly.

    Final Adjustments: Make sure the ends are secure, and the clasp is correctly attached, ensuring your jewelry piece is ready to wear.
