Vintage Garden Bracelet Finally Done


About this design:

I have been working on this two days and think I finally am happy with it. Two prior pics show development and layers of bracelet. I added more charms and took out the extra chain in the original. I'm pretty happy with it :D Did cost a little bit of $$$$ to make. 10 dollars alone in swarovski lol!

Components:

brass findings, chain and charms, swarovski crystals and czech pressed glass, time time time!
