Suddenly Spring Challenge

Michelle Mach is sponsoring a Spring Challenge.  (Here is a link to her original post Suddenly-Spring-Challenge)  If you were lucky enough to get one of her pre-made bracelets, you were to use it to make something springy.  I wanted to keep it as a bracelet as it actually fit my wrist (which is smaller than most).  So I added some ladybug charms in spring colors, gold butterflies, and some gold leaves.  It was challenging to get the charms on.  I used two different sized jump rings, a large one to go on the elastic itself and a smaller one to hang the chanrm.  I mixed gold and silver as I wanted to keep this and I prefer gold.

I think I met the challenge.  I am pleased with the bracelet.  Please let me know what you think.

  1. It's very clever how you added the charms! I know what you mean about the bracelet--it fit me perfectly, too! I like the bright look of the gold and the cute ladybugs. Thanks for joining the challenge!

  2. Cute idea. The bracelet was kind of nice. If I was more of a jewelry wearer, I would have wanted to keep it too. Last time I was in Michaels though, they were still selling them for anyone who may want another.
