Rustic Flower bracelet

Greetings to all my fellow beaders !!!
Well, I love to browse around the Internet looking for what strikes my eye. My passion is making...
Components: The flower connector which is my focal was easy for me to make my bracelet. I was looking for simplicity. In my bead stash I found these beads to incorporate into the bracelet. I used antique brass for my findings to keep the bracelet with a rustic touch to it. I couldn't decide if I wanted leather with wood beads as that would have worked out very well too. I have small wrists and I wanted this to be somewhat dainty. The beads are very old and I think that they are for the most part glass. I'm not quiet sure though. The brown ones shine like cat eye's. All in all they seemed to have worked out for me.
