    Yeah, the pics aren’t great, but I wanted to mail them to her, her Birthday was Feb. 15th and today is the 27th. So the pics were a bit rush.

    Very nice. I am attempting my first necklace using wire wrapped charms (is that what is on the bracelet?) and am hopeful they turn out as nice as this.

    Nice job! Especially for it being your FIRST bracelet! I’m sure she will love it. Homemade gifts are (usually! lol) the best kind :)

    Luna chick, they’re actually spacer beads that are wire wrapped, but same concept. Good luck on the first attempt of making a necklace using wire wrap, their FUN!!!
    Cuban, yes, homemade gifts are the best kind, this will be her third jewelry I’ve made for her,two of them I handed them to her face to face and she was surprise that I made them for her. Unfotunately, both times I forgot to take a pic of them before handing them to her. :)

    Do the beads slide around the bracelet freely, or are they all attached to the links, if you understand me, lol. Either way I really like the colour combos in this bracelet. I’m sure your sister-in-law will love these.

    They’re on a thin chain, with two crimps on the end. one between the thin chain and reg. chain and the other next to the lobster clasp.
