Charm Exchange Bracelet
Do you love the diversity of charm bracelets? Often, they say a lot about what you like. Some people have topic, color or style specific ones.
This one was a lot fun, because it came from a charm exchange on Lampwork Etc. Hosted by Mallory Hoffman and Deb Batten, it had a lot of beadmakers participating. The maximum number we could submit was 15 charms with receiving the same number in return. I loved it. Any material was fair game.
I'll take a better photo next time, but I was so excited, that I wanted to show you. Having a wire base, it was necessary to have spacer material between the charms, to help prevent them from bumping against each other next time. I really like being able to use up some of my little lampwork donuts that were hanging around and I added in some of my fun rubber O rings from Yvonne at MyElements on Etsy.
So now I want to know what do you like in charm bracelets? Do you have one (or more)? What materials is it made from? Does it have a theme? And of course, I'll take any jewelry making suggestions you could toss out. I have so much to learn!
