i made this bracelet and earrings for the Across the Universe movie swap that I participated in last month... It was especially sad to see the bracelet go, but I was happy that my partner enjoyed it!

Here are the different panels of the bracelet:

I started off with a stretch bracelet made of wooden double-drilled beads (from Michaels), and painted each panel gold. I modge-podged photos from the movie (printed from my computer) on each panel and triple-thick glossed them (I think like 4 layers? I went gloss-crazy!) and also added a little trinket or sticker to each panel

From top to bottom,
-Lucy and Jude all psychedellic and underwater, with a flower sequin
-JoJo rockin out whil his guitar gently weeps, with a star button
-Jude walking near the water.. I added some seagulls and the lighthouse
-Lucy and Jude embracing, with a metal heard brad
-Sadie singing, I added some swarovski rhinstones
-Prudence and ome flower stickers
-Jude and Strawberry fields forever (with a teeny tiny poly-clay strawberry that I made!)

and here is a photo of the bracelet, jsut so you can see the shape:

My partner also got these earrings, which were inspired by "Happiness is a Warm Gun" (and I may have posted these in this forum before... sorry if this is your second time seeing them!)

-Fuzzy heart beads, metal gun charms and swarovski bicone crystals

I think I may re-make the bracelet for myself Wink

Hope you enjoy the pics!

 :oWOW Shocked I Love it!!!

"If I had a magic charm
It would protect you from all harm
There'd be no sirens to alarm
We could stay here every day
And if I were a super hero
Good guys all the villains zero
I'd save you from all that is evil
So you can sleep at night"
