I made this bracelet using 20 gauge silver wire and a jig. Since the wire flowers were a bit uneven, I decided to use amethyst chips instead of perfect little round amethyst beads in keeping with the naive look. I hammered each of the flowers before connecting them with jump rings. Unfortunately, between hammering and trying to flatten the wire with pliers, I managed to break more than one of the amethyst centres.

It looks so delicate.  How long did it take you to make?

It probably took about 3 hours - longer than it should have, but it was my first time using a jig and having to replace the amethyst chips every time I smashed one with the hammer didn't help either.
