Pansy P(f)renzy!

About this design:

This is a lovely glass bead with Pansy's. I made the bracelet a few times until I was satisfied with it! Please let me know what you think! I have added contrasting beads, amber, amethyst and lovely large peach freshwater pearls, some in peacock too. I added the flower button in contrast to the Pansy's! Copper leather thong, which I have twisted into a loop and then secured with wire. To attach the glass focal bead to the leather I used some lilac wire and made a few loops so to add the leather and the cotton to attach the beads.
