    This is so unique and cool. Love your use of the recycled items and the smooth blues. Your design looks so casual and almost “unintentional”, which is part of its great charm.

    Great fun. Love the blues graduating from light to dark. And the metal button and the key and the beautiful floral findings on the bracelet. Gorgeous work.

    Outstanding crafting that has resulted in a wonderful set! The use of multi-materials throughout this whole project is exceptional. The chain & leather back, key, and ombre seeds paired with your nifty sewing really shows your talent & design ability. The bracelet is awesome too–just love the end findings on it. Great work Midge….You continue to inspire me! :)
