It's A Spring-like Bracelet

After getting up at 5:45 this morning, I couldn't go back to sleep. So, with the second season of Gilmore Girls playing in the background, I decided to play with one of my buttons from my previous post. This bracelet is made up of glass beads, a ceramic bead (the pink and brown one), and two drilled gold disks with green Magatama beads... all of which are wrapped up nicely with gold plated wire and chained together with twisted jump rings. The chain hanging off of the pretty pink button (which is the clasp) is made up of more twisted gold jump rings and features a pink glass bead with a flower cap and, to carry the green over, a piece of Chinese crystal.

The clasp is made up of a pretty pink button and a piece of an old shirt (100% cotton, thank you very much). That shirt was actually my favorite shirt but it was WORN OUT. The elastic was all stretched out and the colors weren't as vibrant as they used to be. But I still love it and just knew I had to work it into a piece of jewelry.

Soo... viola!

I like this bracelet so much I'm going to wear it today! Yay for being selfish and making something for myself :D


  1. I love how you have incorporated the fabric, the chain, the beads and the button!! brilliant!!

  2. I love that bracelet Rose! I bet it will become a conversation piece whenever you wear it.
    BTW, thanks for dropping by my blog. I followed your link and found your pinaypencilers' account, so I assume you're my kabayan(?):)
    Glad to find a fellow pinay who enjoy the same craft as I do.
    I love some of your drawings/sketches, if only I'm still into stitching big projects, I will convert those into counted thread embroidery patterns. LOL Unfortunately, I only focus on "small" projects now.

  3. Very pretty and feminine Rose, and the fabric clasp is a fabulous idea.

  4. That's so pretty! I also love your photography. Your backgrounds are always so pretty!
