In Step 3, Clasp button, Connection (page 41), it’s important that you pass the thread down through the “V” that’s formed between the large center pearl (D) and the seed beads (A) on each side before you string the connection beads (this is shown in Figure 9, blue thread). It’s helpful to remember that the large pearl should sit on top, with the seed-bead connecting strands underneath.

Figures 1 and 3 have been adjusted to match the written instructions (which are correct).
Passementerie Bangle by Alice Coelho (page 40)
The amount of size 10° cylinder beads in the instructions is incorrect. Rather than 5 g, you actually need 6 g size 10° cylinder beads for the inner band of the bracelet.
The final sentence of Step 2, Inner Band, Connect should read:
Place a needle on the tail thread and pass back through the last 3E (not 3B) of Rounds 1 and 2 to form a tubular band (Fig. 4, red thread).
