Civil War era beaded bracelet

Copy of Civil War era beaded bracelet.  There will be three strands united with a clasp.  Photo shows me working on a scale, as each sample is about one inch..  Finding the old style box clasp was a problem unless ordering on the internet.  I have decided to complete the garnet red bracelet first, using inexpensive materials so I can find any design problems.  The pearl example most closely resembles the original, but I am lacking enough pearls to make it, and must buy more.  Finished bracelet photo will follow when completed.
