Spring! Hurry up!

This was so fun to make.
 Started with a length of ribbon a little longer than the circumference of my wrist.
This is an embroidered ribbon, looks like it was made on an embroidery type sewing machine, inexpensive, a little over a dollar for a roll. You can buy the whole thing with no need to  have it measured.
I used seed beads in a mix of greens, and pinks mostly size 11s,  Then i added glass leaves and blossoms in pink and green as well. A loop on one end will fit over one of three blossoms on the opposite end  giving you a closure to fit three sizes. A couple of hours on three evenings and it was done.
I love spring and have been celebrating it's inevitable entry into this year since, well, last year, solstice!!
