The Best Things

About this design:

This Green Girl pewter heart has the Helen Keller quote "The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or touched, they must be felt with the heart". Its width is perfect for a bracelet. This design takes about 5 minutes to make, is reversible, and would make a wonderful gift.

To reverse the design, simply detach one end of the clasp, re-thread the strap and reattach the clasp.

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Cut a strip of leather just over three times the circumference of your wrist. If you normally wear a 7 inch bracelet, a 21.25" strip would be perfect.
Step 2:
Thread the leather strap through the holes of the pendant, leaving the side you want visible uncovered.
Step 3:
Using your helicopter punch, put holes about 1/4" from each end of the lace.
Step 4:
Attach your clasp with jump rings.

    Helen Keller has been even more special to me since the birth of my youngest grandchild, who is blind and hearing impaired. Have ordered the heart, and will make the bracelet for my daughter. Thank you, I had not been aware of the inscription before!
