Whimsical Wood Bouquet Bracelet

About this design:

This bracelet is thought to be listed on our Chickie's shop on etsy to get wheels for Dixie. The wood bead I have made, first I was thinking that I would decorate it some more but then I kind of liked the tarnished old painted wood look. I had to redo stuff a couple of times but now I kind of pleased with it. The dangle is mixed metal and the copper gonna get a patina bec. it's bare copper wire. Also I made the dangle to pick up colors from the other parts of the design. What do you think?

    I think it’s stunning the way it is. The colors/textures are fresh and lively, the arrangement so interesting that I could look at this for a long, long time. Anyone wearing this would be sure to get compliments and feel special.

    Wrapping the leather with a bit of lively green thread, genious!

    The brass beads? I was just looking at them yesterday on LB and they were brighter. Did you use a technique on them?
    Thank you

    Thank you so much; Mary, Deb, Peggy, and Maria :D

    I have already sealed the woodbead so that one isn’t gonna change and I think I’m not adding anymore to the design. :)

    Peggy, ‘course I as you too, everyones opinions is valued! The brass beads I got are that dark, they do differ some. Some also have markings after filing, which can be cool in some designs.

    I was thinking 31 as price but 35-40 you say,hmmm…

    Lovely, earthy, lots of variation to keep attention, and bright green beads…. what more could anyone want?
    I’d sat $35 minimum. Definitely ooak, and it has your handmade bead, looks marvelous.
