A New Bracelet From Vintage Flea Market Findings

I've been trying to find time for my new hobby, making jewelry. Since it's not intended for selling, It's nice to not have any pressure to create. It's just for me to wear and to give away as gifts, which makes it more fun to make.
To make this bracelet, I just used some brass chains, and broken rosery beads, which had a silver chain to it, for contrast.

I whipped out my brass jump rings and clasps.
I useded one jump ring on each end, with all of the chains gathered on each ring.
Super easy!
Then I just attached the clasps to the jump rings.
To make it more interesting, I decided to add one of the lone vintage earrings I had. I choose the brass flower earring with the fushia stone near the bottom right.

It had a screw on vintage backing, which I partially removed. I bent the rest of it into a loop and reattached the clasp to one end and the bracelet to another.
 I love this bracelet now and I wear it all of the time.
