Beaded Bracelet

I made this bracelet for my daughter. She gave me a photo of a beaded napkin ring that resembled pieces of coral in a turquoise color. After a couple of experiments in knitting & crocheting, I ended up making the base on a simple bead's just a rectangle of seed beads. The coral branches were sewn onto the base. Those beads are oval-shaped with the holes offset which gives the branches a more irregular shape. I backed the bracelet with black grosgrain ribbon and added a silver toggle fastener.
