    Thank you. I’m thinking about making more with different ribbon, chain, charms and.seeing if they will sell.
    I’m seriously thinking of ones with aqua ribbon & crystals and seashells since I have a big box of them.

    Awesome. Simple… but with lots of little details to look at. This will be an awesome idea for the Sari Silk! :)

    Julie hit its appeal on the head–it’s all those little details that are such a feast for the eyes! These colors are gorgeous together, too! I think you could sell a lot of these! :)

    The copper and gold is very pretty.

    Same bracelet with aqua ribbon & crystals and seashells would be a great color combo.
    The link chain you used, is that copper ?

    I just ordered copper chain and its ‘bright’ , too bright I think. I need to find a technique to change the color a bit.

    LOVE the colors, especially that scrumptious ribbon. I’m intrigued by the toggle “charm”, too. I bought clasps that simply don’t work (bead show–no returns. Sigh.), so now I know what to do with them. Thanks!

    Thank you Peggy…everything is copper…the chain, heart, caps on crystal charms. I’m not sure where you are seeing gold. For some reason I don’t like to order chain. I like to touch it, see the size, see the color in person. This chain is more rustic looking…not bright. I’ve had several people tell me here that Gilder’s paste will tone down bright metal.

    Thank yoi Laud. The toggle charm was a last minute thing to fill the area around the clasp. I had tried using it as a toggle before. Its just too tiny.
