Turquoise color hinge bracelet

About this design:

This hinge was painted a turquoise color. I had first put a delicate heart chain attached to two sides of the hinge but was not happy with it. I then found a bracelet link chain that worked out a lot better. I did end up gluing the latch because it kept coming open. :(
This piece actually sold last night! :)

    This is awesome! I agree with Lynda… It is not surprising that it sold so quickly. I saw a bracelet similar to this a few days ago but the hinge was very plain and not nearly as gorgeous and colorful as yours. Love it!!! :D

    Wonderful idea with the hinge! I have several and I will take your advice on the finish. You did a beautiful job.
    I am imagining a chain that is both thicker and larger…wonder if that will work? I’m going to try!
    Thanks for sharing your creativity.
