These beads reminded me of the Franciscan Desert Rose Dinnerware pattern that I've seen in antique stores. This pattern originated in 1941, and is the most recognized Franciscan pattern followed by the 1940 Apple pattern set which I inherited from my grandmother.
I already had flat oval pink beads which a friend of mine gave to me when she heard of my interest in beading and jewelry making, and they match the shade of pink in white floral beads perfectly. I was ready to go!
Basically following the pattern provided by my calendar, I added in my own little tweaks. I mixed in some sterling silver beads and a sterling silver hook clasp. The bracelet is 8.25" (21 cm) from end to end including the clasp. It is slightly less than an inch wide, and in my opinion, has an antique look to it despite the fact it's made with all modern materials.
