Not too shabby for my first time! :)

So I was planning to buy crystal personalized bracelets for my flower girls but at $40-$45 each, that seemed a bit high for 3 and 4 year olds, especially considering I'm getting them a few other things as well.  Well, I just got back from Michael's and for a total of $25 and less than an hour, I made these!


So I was planning photo 76168-1


Not bad, huh?  Clear and pink crystals with sparkly crystal flower spacers, silver letter beads, and a silver heart! :)  I may have a new hobby...so fun!

thanks girls!  trust me, i had no idea where to start either!  i just thought, i'll wander over to the jewelry making section to see what's what.  i seriously spent about an hour trying to figure out what to get.  but once i got home and started doing it, it was super easy!  i actually re-made them once since i didn't like how they came out the first time.  it was super fast!

d1rty - yeah, it's knotted at the heart. i put a sparkly crystal flower spacer on each side of the heart charm and did the knot between one of the spacers and the heart.  i pulled it super tight so it was an incredibly tiny knot and then trimmed the stretchy string all the way to the knot so that there were hardly any ends sticking out.  hey, they're only 3 and 4 years old, they aren't going to be that critical, right? ;)  i do wish i would have put a crystal flower spacer on each side of the name but that would require going back to michaels to get more and taking them apart to remake them.  um, nah....
