This is my next bracelet, which is made from a resin tile cast with baby pine cones from may backyard and a feather I had found. I decided to use all brass findings for this to keep with the natural, warm coloring of the resin tile. As a result of this, I had a hard time finding screw eye posts for the resin tile that matched my wire, jump rings and chain, so I decided to make my own (as shown in the picture below). I will show you how I did this in my next post, so stay tuned!

 

Here are the pictures of the finished bracelet. I used turquoise for the main beads of the bracelet and bronze colored crystal beads for the accents.

This next piece is a bracelet that I call the Remembrance Bracelet as the main center part contains some parts of vintage rosaries that had fallen in disrepair, which my grandmother had collected over the years because she couldn’t bear to part with rosaries that she has used. I thought it was very fitting to cast these pieces into resin and give them new life as beautiful bracelets. Here are some pictures of the first version of the bracelet that I made:

 

I soon discovered that the bracelet was much too long, so I removed a bead link from the center of each side and then the piece was just the right size! Let me know what you think.

 

Thanks for stopping by!
