Art Bead Scene February - Cherry Blossom Bracelet

I haven't participated in the ABS challenge for a long time...probably through lack of time more than anything  but decided to try and enter every month as I don't make enough jewellery and I really enjoy it. 

For this bracelet I decided to make a cherry blossom connector for the focal...I glazed it pink but because I used brown clay it came out a lot darker than I planned, but I still think it looks pretty cool.  I paired it with some of my ceramic beads in similar colours, some pink picasso Czech rounds, a Czech crystal, some copper chain and Tierracast clasp and charms. 

Really enjoyed making this.  Check out the Art Bead Scene HERE for some great monthly challenges.
