My Very First Jewelry

I thought I make a card for challenge site this morning but when I saw this wood flower bead that I bought long time ago. Then I changed my mind, yes I want to make a simple bracelet out of this beautiful beads. Well, I don't have a single tools for jewelry making. But I found the craft wire I don't mind if is for jewelry or not. I just made my pattern then start beading, but the hard part was the end I used the regular scissor to cut the wire and then twisted. It's good that I had this old bracelet around so I took out the locker then used it. Recycling is good :) The small pearl and crystal was from Angela's Beading Fun Pack. To be honest, Jenna inspired me with her gorgeous jewelry. Just click on her name to check and see all her beautiful hand made jewelries. Finally, I made my own first jewelry today and I'm so happy it turned out pretty good. When my daughters saw it they asked me if I will sell it on eBay but I told them no. I'll keep it and use it, hopefully I can find a better beads and make a matching necklace later.
And I entered my first jewelry at Jewellery Challange by Sarah.
Thank you for looking!
