The hearts with the swirly-que patterns are my personal favorite (although they're all quite lovely). 

Did you free hand the designs or did they come from somewhere?

Thanks for sharing!

I like the "Sarah" bracelet but I wonder if maybe it would be a little pokey, with all those points just waiting to stick into you.

Is it comfy to wear?

It is! Oddly. I know it doesn't look like it, but I make sure I don't "point" the ends, I snip the corners off.

How do you do these Shocked !! draw or print? etc

The ones pictured were done by placing an image under the shrink plastic and tracing it. Easy peasy! Smiley

I really like the tree.  Did you draw it freehand?

The tree is my Logo/Signature Piece. It, too, is drawn/traced onto the plastic while laying the image under the plastic and 'tracing'.

You're welcome! Thanks! And... no. I am -no- artist. All of the images were printed and then placed under the shrink plastic and I traced onto the plastic.

Gorgeous! I especially love the third from the bottom (blue and gold) and the tree pendant! You have a great style!
