New bracelet

Sunday was the better day of the weekend but I was still determined to sit at the table and work on an inside project. I pulled out all of my jewelry 'findings'-isn't that a good word for all the little things we find along the way? I recently stumbled upon a ribbon band at Michael's that had feathers tacked on. Really caught my eye so I grabbed it fast! (On sale for $1.99.)

I have fallen in love with the charms that have words stamped in them. They can be found in most scrapbook stores or Hobby Lobby and are part of Tim Holtz' selection of great little trinkets. The cogs are also Tim Holtz but the oriental coins aren't-I don't remember where I found them but love the different sizes.

I also found a good line of chains and trinkets called Industrial Chic at Michael's. The chain and the feather band are part of their findings-as well as lots of little pendant things made of metal. Love them and most items are $4.99-$5.99.

One hour later I had a wonderful bracelet made and a necklace to match! I took my Industrial Chic chain and cut it to size for the necklace then took the remainder of the length, doubled it, added jump rings to each end, added the feather band to the jump rings and used a coordinating colored clasp/toggle for the closure. There-all done and ready to wear.
