Find Your Wings

About this design:

There's a great song by Mark Harris called "Find Your Wings". A perfect song from a parent to a child on graduation. I'm actually listening to it now with tears in my eyes. This bracelet was inspired by this song. :)

    Val, this is another beautiful, amazing bracelet design from you! I also love the “random” appearance of everything you add — although if you’re like me, it’s all planned out! LOL Love the addition of the “SOAR” pieces to go with your “Find Your Wings” focal — fab idea! :D
