Firstly, it is a very pretty design. Each cluster is made up of several wire wrapped pearl dangles which means you get to practice this a lot. That's a good thing if you are a beginner.
Yet, if your wrapped loops aren't perfect, nobody will see them either. That's even better! And last but not least, you get to use up pearl bead stashes. Very useful if you've only got a few left of each size.
There are also so many ways to vary the design. Instead of ribbon, use chain. Make a bracelet rather than a chain. Use other round beads rather than pearls or perhaps mix faceted rounds with pearls. It's a wonderfully versatile design and not hard to do.
