I was given a couple of  elasticated bangles  which were broken/damaged and between the two managed to come up with this bracelet.
I tried to re-thread them onto elastic cord but struggled to get it to stay knotted so instead I threaded the pieces onto tigertail wire and added a little charm and lobster clasp.

Here's a close-up showing the enamelled flowers and crystals.
I think it's turned out very well and I know i'll enjoy wearing it.

Pink & brown

I made this card for a friend's birthday. The image is from the Furry Friends cd from Joanna Sheen. I added a lime green backer to each image and a die-cut flourish in silver topped off with glittered flowers in purple and white with tiny brad centres. A piece of shimmery ric-rac braid across the bottom added that finishing touch.

Don't you just love that little face.

I made a couple of shamballa bracelets in brown and pink to send with it, both use silvered glass beads with silver tone beads on the ends of the cords.
I'm really getting the hang of these bracelets now and made a couple more over the weekend.
