My Thanks and Blue Bracelets

Thanks for all the support yesterday y'all!!
It really meant a ton.
Now to actually start working on the new goal instead of all the little bits of other tasks that distract me and suck the day away.

As you can see I finished the bracelet from yesterday. And, you can see the button I picked out for the closure.
Several of you guessed that I would use a different button, and that's the one I was actually leaning toward. 
However, as I picked it up and turned it over, I saw some writing on the back that indicates a particular maker and year. 

I want to do some reseach on this button before I use it. As well, it's a bit heavy and I was afaid it would send the balance of the bracelet off. So, I went with my second choice instead. The metal on the one being used has a blue-ish tint to it that I think goes well with the turquoise colored stones. 

As you can also tell in the bracelet picture, I'm now wearing the thing. I put it on as a test run, but am really kinda liking the feel of it. . .hmmmmm We'll see what I decide in a few days!

For now, here's another blue bracelet that was just listed in the shop today. 
French Lily Bracelet

Lastly, I want to encourage you to head over to JennP1751's blog for a GIVEAWAY!! Jenn and I are both in the Alabama Accents Team on Etsy. She makes some fab jewelry too. :)

On to the next item on the list!

  1. Sometimes you just gotta keep some of your creations for yourself! The new bracelets look great! How interesting that a button would have an inscription of the maker- would love to hear what you find out!

  2. Erin,
    I do keep/make a few items for myself from time to time, but I really didn't expect this to be one of them until I put it on. . .weird! I'll let it slide this time ;)

    I thought it was weird too. I'm looking it up now. I had to get the magnifying glass out to see the inscription better!

  4. Therese,
    You are right. . . but making another means another trip to Michael's for more beads. That could be DANGEROUS!! ;) I'm so glad you like that one! Thanks
