Trees with Purple Metallic Apples

This bead and button cuff bracelet is made of all wool yarn that was crocheted. I started in the center of the bracelet by making a round. Then on one side, I made 3 single crochets { on the side edge of the round } for the wrist band....and did the same thing on the other side of that same crocheted round. Then I crocheted around the entire piece till I got it the size that I wanted it to be. I had to increase in curved areas to make the bracelet flat. The first thing I sewed in place were the two trees. The little silver ornate button serves as a moon in an the evening night of my "bracelet creation". On the branches of the trees, I sewed down in place, purple metallic beads for apples. Then I just began to place all kinds of buttons that I found in our button box. It took quite a bit of time deciding on how to place all the buttons and beads. I then stitched them all down and added some amber colored crystal beads..and then made bead fringes below the roots of the trees. I then crocheted around the entire edge with black perle cotton. It measures 2 and 3/4" at the widest part of the finished piece.
Since the brown velvet covered button { on the far left } was from my sister's childhood winter coat, I wonder if she would like this bracelet for her birthday?
