Simple wristband

Has everyone done their Easter-related tasks already? 
Long story short told, as I don't really know where my time is disappearing, and I'm running behind on literally everything, I'll just dig into my stash for some of the things that are waiting to be shown. This time: a simple bracelet for mom. 
When I'm stuck with beads I can't use up no matter what, one thing is always going to work: memory wire. Whether it is threading a repeated pattern or a rather unorganized mix, memory wire seems to make everything wearable. Even those papillon beads (farfalle, or berry beads) that I once bought only to place them in the drawer for years.
Anyhow, I now decided to line them up in groups of three, each separated by a small white opaque rocaille, and just keep going until I run out of papillons. 
When all was done, the only thing I added was a small charm saying "hand work".
Matching the lace in our tablecloth - petrified lace detail from the Dragon Bridge. Just to make sure the post looks a little more "extensive" ;)
