Handmade mixed media charm bracelet...under the sea

This sweet little charm bracelet features things from the sea....sea glass, starfish, sea turtles, mermaid tail (from my own handmade clay bead collection), and seahorses to name a few. I've discovered that adding some fabric into my mixed media pieces really makes them pop and gives them texture. This bracelet was recently sold at a local craft show. It's a very fun and whimsical piece. Lots of dangles make for an interesting design.

Monogram Metal Stamp Silver Earrings

These are so sweet and so easy to make. A couple of silver metal blanks and sterling silver earwires and you can make the perfect, one of a kind gift for any occasion. The initial investment of the metal stamps will by far be your biggest expense. I bought mine on etsy. Just type in metal stamps under the 'supplies' section and you will get a listing of many sellers with all kinds of fonts. I love mine. Be warned that metal stamping is addictive. I see so many cute fonts that I've just got to have. They are pricey but they pay for themselves rather quickly.
