Happy Days

About this design:

It was a very rainy and dreary 4th of July. I spent the day alone, and my phone never rang. So I decided to make a happy bracelet....something to make me feel better.


1mm tan leather cord, filigree silvertone button closure, assorted blue and yellow glass beads, assorted silveplated beads.

    Sorry you had a boring 4th. I spent the evening trying to convince a pit bill the loud boomies were not going to get her.
    At least you made a happy bracelet with bright and cheerful colors.

    Lovely bracelet!! I hope it cheered you up! I had a dog cowering in the closet all evening and night as our entire neighborhood shot off legal and illegal fireworks! We also live a half mile from the golf course where the fire dept. shoots of the city’s fireworks every year. We sit on our deck and have fireworks right over our heads. Too bad our dog does not appreciate that. :)
