    Kim! I love this!! Your friend will love it too for sure – the focal, the owl – your whole design here is perfect (I too am a big fan of the fantastic woodland toggle!) Beautiful. And I also have been inspired by Jogi – I have started working on a couple of bracelets that I’ll try and post this weekend…Thanks Jogi!

    Beautiful Kimberlie. Your design is so cohesive and parts so diverse. A lovely bracelet. Your friend will cherish it. Such a sweet owl.

    Everyone here is right about getting inspiration from each other. I was inspired by your lariat and that’s when I made my “Follow Your Heart” Necklace.

    Very nice! I like the way you pulled the theme through the piece with the owl & woodland toggle–so perfect with the pine focal. Your friend will alway remember & treasure your thoughtfulness. This site definitely overflows with inspiration & talent. I love spending time with this encouraging community. You’ve all helped me grow, learn, and try new things, often outside of my comfort zone. This is one of the best sites ever!

    All of the responses to your beautiful bracelet and comments highlight the incredible community here. You have an wonderful creativity that is shown in this piece.
    When you see what others do (and when I see what others do & post) you (& I and most of the rest of the community) may take the piece in and think about it. You are probably like me, you even enlarge the pieces and see what went into the pieces and techniques that make the pieces so neat that cause you to look at them again and again.
    Then you think, I really like this, they made such a pretty piece.
    So, you think, I wonder if I could stretch a tad further and try some aspect of what I see in the piece and make a piece of my own. If you are like me, I might try once and often admit defeat and toss the results into a basket then start working on something else only to come back and try it again and again, until I make something of my own that was inspired or challenged by another of the incredible artists who are a part of this community.
    My hat is off to all of you who make and post and push yourselves and me to keep trying to make beautiful or funky or fun or complicated or warm or hot or cool or whatever pieces of jewelry and art that we can look at and say, WOW! There are real artists here who encourage and inspire all of usto do our best or better,and I can feel like I am a part of their community. How great is that!
