    This is so pretty. I went thru some of your previous work and you are VERY talented. Do you sell your jewelry at shows or online? I didn’t realize how much I like the combo of pink coral and green.

    Yes you are talented and I love your idea. I do have a couple of pendants I dont really care for. Call it recycled.

    OK, this decoupage thing is sinking in now (I have some of the stuff sitting in a cupboard since ages) — this is of course what one should do with all those large ugly beads and pendants that appeared in the stash long ago for strange reasons…
    Just lovely bracelet!

    Ditto to what Monica said, I did some decoupage on wooden tiles, but the idea of using it for things that are sitting at the bottom of bead storage is even more appealing :D

    Brilliant idea! Lovely jewelry as well, very sweet and feminine looking.

    I have some “not so pretty” large vintage acrylic beads in an unflattering “blah” beige shade. I tried stamping on them (not that successfully), but never thought of decoupage … hummm … I may have to give it another think …. ;)

    Your beautiful bracelet really engages the senses, it has visual fragrance, very feminine and has the beauty of a Spring or summer bouquet! I would dare to say that this bracelet will receive compliments before the outfit!
