Charming Garden


About this design:

A charm bracelet for my sister. Jan's an avid gardener and bird lover as well. Our Grandmother had the most beautiful classic flower garden when we were young. It was a great place to daydream among all the flowers on a lazy Sunday afternoon. All us girls have our Grandmother's love of flowers and all things green and growing (Except for weeds!)!

Components:

Antiqued copper chain, copper garden charms, assorted millefiori beads, copper clasp and findings

    Thanks LG & Ravin. I’m just a wee bit nostalgic today. You know it’s really not easy to put the charms and drops on this double cable chain! It seemed to take forever to get it done right. I thought, Oh this will be done in no time. NOT!!!

    Your sister is going to flip over this one. Not only is is pretty, but it’s pretty special too! May I ask where you got the charms? I would love to get a set of those. Gardening is my number one summer hobby, yep, even over beading – the love also came from both grandmothers, AND my greatgrandmother! Still talk to all three of them when I’m out there.

    Thanks Linda, Lynn, Stormy and Pam! Linda, I got the charms at different websites. Some I got at Artbeads, but the rest I can’t remember. One here and one there. I’ve collected them for several months. I’ve also got a set in GP.
