Hinge Beaded Bracelet

About this design:

This hinge was quite the piece to figure out!!! What to attach to it? Chains? I did some with chains and ribbon also. But I do like the look, :)


Hinge, beads, paint...and lots of imagination!

    I love this, wanted to do a hinge when we had the bling/repurpose challenge, but could not find anything as beautiful as yours so I abandoned the idea :D
