Raindrops & Posies


About this design:

The thing that I love most about Spring rains, is how the lingering raindrops seem to bring out the beauty and color of the flowers. I wanted to create a bracelet that combined the beauty of raindrops and flowers.

Components:

Vintaj Spring Rain earring kit, Vintaj Victorian Gable Patina kit, Vintaj Weathered Copper Patina kit, Vintaj Arte Metal Blooming Flower Pendant 38mm, Vintaj Arte Metal Tattered Daisy Charm 10x13mm, Vintaj Arte Metal Petite Etched Cable Chain, Sky Blue Dancing Drop 6.5-8mm freshwater pearls, vintage brass lobster claw closure.

    What did you use to punch the hole in the flower in the center? The metal is really hard.
