However, some good does come from all the school cancellations. Yesterday, my daughter and mother sat down with me while I worked on my Artbeads.com project. As you can imagine, this months focus is on Valentine's Day. While browsing the large selection of Valentine's Day components, I came across some supplies that I didn't even know Artbeads.com carried. We all know they are a great source for Swarovski crystals, and fabulous findings and charms, but did you know that they also carry a wide array of string materials and a nice selection of craft accessories. I could hardly wait to receive the components, after all who doesn't love hearts. And not only for Valentine's but hearts are great all year long!
I picked up this fabulous hand dyed silk ribbon, LOVE IT! The ribbon is a first for me. It was a struggle knotting it, but if at first you don't succeed then try, try, try, again. I added some great little sterling silver charms and a couple tube sliders. The circle, heart charms are stamped using a metal heart stamp that I also received from Artbeads.com, who knew they sold metal stamps? Siam and Crystal Swarovski heart crystals were added to the brass chain. I like how the hole for the hearts is side to side, and the size of the hearts is just perfect to make a statement in this bracelet. It's finished off with a puffy sterling heart clasp and pewter heart dangle.
My daughter cooed all over this bracelet, unfortunately it's way too big for her little wrist. But that doesn't keep her from trying to abscond with it.
This bracelet is in my Etsy shop.
