A bracelet made of chain is my jewelry today. It has a chain base so it fits lots of sizes because you can clasp it in  any of the chain links. I chose a rosy  pink &  black for the colors. In the center is a pink lampworked bead. I used a black glass oval with 4mm pink pearls on the ends for the next link  to the left. Moving on to the left the next link is made of pink horizontal squares &  a rose 6mm bicone center. Then comes 3 pink hearts with seeds between them followed by a black round centered link that has silver mesh on it &  black glass large seed bead ends. Moving left is a link with 2  6mm rose bicones. Then comes a link with a rose glass rondelle center flanked by 2  3mm black bicones on each end. The next link on the left is made with a pink swirled glass rondelle that has 2 metallic pink seeds on each end. I put a dangle on this end with 2 of the rose pearls. Looking back to the center lampworked bead &  moving to the right you can see a link made with pink seed ends &  pink opaque 4mm bicones &  having a black seed bead center. Then comes an all black link made of 2 large black glass rondelles with a faceted smaller rondelle center. Moving right there is a pink transparent glass rondelle center with pink glass flat flower ends. The following link uses 2 pink vertical square beads having a black diagnally drilled dice bead that has silver stars. Followed by a link that uses pink opaque bicones with a large black rondelle center. Then comes an all black link made of 2 bicones. The last link on the right uses a pink swirled glass rondelle flanked by rose 4mm pearls. The clasp is a lobster claw type. This might be a fun bracelet to give Mom for Mother's day. The board it is on is a leftover trim board that I routered a groove in for laying out bracelets.
