About this design:

Leather Wrap Bracelet with Pearls and Montana Blue Crystals. I wanted to try something a little different so I worked in a beautiful piece of ribbon.

    I’d love to know where you got the button? Love the addition of the ribbon. I was thinking of that myself. Now I am truly inspired!

    Thank you all so much! Jenni, the button came from my local Joanne Fabrics store. The little bird button came from a local specialty fiber store. This bracelet went to a wonderful new home yesterday. It is always nice when your “babies” go off to a good home. ;)
