Emma's Charm Bracelet

Every little girl need a charm bracelet at least once in their life. And this one is so simple to make, even I could do it!!!

The charms are all from Inspiration Emporium and the chain and clasp are from my local bead store. You can see all the charms here.

What was really fun was how she explained each charm and how they symbolized her summer....even though she didn't pick any of them out!  An imagination is a wonderful gift!!!
The door and umbrella are a symbol of the door to her backyard pool with an umbrella.
The crescent moon is something she's fixated on since she was a toddler.

The butterfly has some symbol of a show she's watching this summer....

She loved the lock and key, and of course everyone has to have a pair of flip-flops in the summer.
The paper is a torn sheet from the Sunrise Sunset Collection by Finnebair. And they're in stock. Use my code iecain81 and get 10% off your order!!! $5 shipping in USA.
Hard to believe the summer is almost over and school starts back up next week here....
Time Flies so Swiftly.

Necklaces Are My Thing

I'm just trying out some new things on my phone and learning to upload them here.

These are 3 of the necklaces I made with Vintaj elements and Patinas using beads I got on vacation.

I used the Patinas on the Dragonfly here.

This is a large deardrop shaped stone and the key is again painted with the Patinas. The cool "chain" is a copper colored tube wire...hard to describe...that looks knitted. You can push beads down it and tie it to close. Really fun stuff.
This one went to Brittany for all her hard work. Proud of her. I made one for my daughter Michelle, and I forgot to take a picture of it. Really proud of her, too. They both work very hard at their jobs. XXX

This cool piece is wrapped around the stone and the embossed blank has another Dragonfly hanging from it.

Just a little change of pace here for me. And an exercise in using the new phone. I'll get better at it....I always told my students to just keep practicing. It works better with every try!
