Vintage style bead and braid necklace

With much of my jewellery it's all about vintage style, for this necklace I've used beads in dusky pink, pearls, braid trim and a metal leaf in an antique kind of colour.
The leaf had been sitting in my bead box for a while and when I got it out the other day I had a strike of inspiration! So I rounded up a selection of beads in complimenting colours and I joined a lot of them together with gold wire, I also found some gold chain (but not too bright gold, which was just what I needed for this necklace) and I interspersed a few beads in between sections of the chain. I was originally thinking of using lace but when I saw the braid I thought it would just finish off the necklace nicely. I then attached all the separate strands to the leaf charm.
