I usually post all my crafts on my craft blog, bexcraft. I keep them separate for several reasons, not the least of which is that it serves as on online gallery for the custom bridal cards I make. When I make something just for me, I’ll occasionally include it on this blog. Anway, I made this bracelet! I took apart an old necklace because I really liked the beads but it was nothing I would ever wear. I strung the beads on wire and ended up with this!

It’s soft and girly but not too dainty. I like it! I know nothing about jewelry making or design so this was very by the seat of my pants and I’m happy with it. The beads came from some costume jewelry I have that belonged to my grandmothers. I honestly don’t know whose necklace these beads came from–I’d guess my great grandmother Mamie but I did get a bunch from my grandma Agatha, too, so I’m not entirely sure!
