I'm not sure if you can tell from the photo, but these are pretty large! One flower pretty much covers the midpoint of my wrist, so it will make a great bracelet focal bead.
They are also very light weight, so you could go so far as to use them for earrings too!
I really don't know if they are made from plastic or wood, but along the edges, it feels like wood. I checked the website on the package, www.thebeadery.com, and it looks like they manufacture primarily plastic beads.
I'd love to hear your thoughts, as usual, on how to creatively incorporate these into fun jewelry pieces!
