Hi,
I love this idea with the pebble bracelets.. I made something similar using pebble charms but soldered a ring to them. The pictures are not so great as there is a shine to them but they can be seen under the jewelry catagory. My loving boyfriend helped me upload them to my blog.
they can be seen along with other crafty stuff at http://scientificexplorergirl.blogspot.com. Tambourine
Girl!  You HAVE to get some better pictures...your jewelry is awesome!

OK, so I have finally read through ALL of the posts, there are SOOO many places to buy these bracelets, but some DONT look like the end result, how is that possible!

I Cant find ANYTHING on Ornamental Resources website at ALL...(it's confusing, What exactly do I look under? title) I found stuff on the Klutz website, I just want to make sure I know what I'm getting.

I am planning on making a bunch of bracelets for Christmas, so BULK is what I need. Anyone else ordered bulk & got a great price?

Do you glue the marbles with E6000 right into the metal forms?

I totally love these & have been looking for the braclets for MONTHS! I hope I can find them for a good price SOON!

THANKS!

I second the question about photo sizing....did you shrink your comic photos?  If so, how do you know what size to go to, and did you print them on photo paper or regular?  Thanks!!

gee I never even thought of shrinking or printing out...I just used the comics from the paper as they were when I made some. I used modge podge to seal them.

anybody else have a good sealer they're used for this kind of stuff??

Are the bracelets from Klutz any good or to they seem cheap?  I'd like to make a few for gifts this Christmas, but I'm undecided between the Klutz ones and these  http://www.marketworks.com/StoreFrontProfiles/DeluxeSFItemDetail.aspx?sfid=77928&c=495893&i=11996008      I don't know which would be better quality.  The klutz ones are cheaper in price

I have some Klutz ones...I bought the refill kit online and it came with 4 bracelets that have 6 discs each. The thing that makes them on the cheap side, I think, is the fact that the little flat "marble" pieces are plastic, not glass. They do fit in the bracelets perfectly, though.

But, of course, you could subsititue the flat glass "marbles" instead! I also bought the book (which comes with 2 bracelet blanks) and I'm giving my friend's 3 daughters the book with an extra bracelet and all of the little plastic circles that came in the refill kit (plus some flat glue dots). I figure that, if they want, they can change the look of the bracelet because they'll have extra parts.

Hope this helps!

So the smaller glass marbles fit the klutz ones?  I have some small ones that I got from either the dollar store or walmart that I was going to use if I bought the other bracelets (that is if they'll even fit -i'm so bad at figuring out sizes).

The smaller glass marbles are not perfectly round, so they don't really fit anything perfectly. I think they sort of rest on the rim of the round flat part. You could try to pick out the roundest ones and go with those.

If you do get the Klutz ones and the glass ones don't fit the way you want them to, at least you'll have a bunch of plastic pieces that do fit!
