Bracelet looks great!!  I went to the site, but couldn't find the length of it posted.  Is it just the standard length of like 7.5"?  

**Edit** : Oh, and one more question, anyone know where I can find those 'droplets' to buy?  I know I can use the glass marbles, but I was hoping to find more of thos plastic droplet thingies just by themselves (sometimes I don't need the whole kit!)

Thanks!

Here is the url to where I ordered the bracelets
http://klutz.com/catalog/product.php?itemNo=2325&cat=5
From end to end they are 8 " . I checked at Michaels, the only thing I could find were the glass marbles. They had others in the jewelry findings dept, but they were like clear rhinestones with a silver backing. They were flat, but you wouldn't be able to see a picture through them.

I feel soo ripped off!  About a year ago, I was in a store and there was a kit to make marble magnets!  I got and now feel stupid for buying a kit when I could easily make one myself!  I'm gonna dig up the kit though, to make some magnets for my pals.

Hi guys,
I just whipped this bracelet out last night.
I didn't have time to wait for the bracelet blank to come in the mail (had to mail the bracelet to my grandma for Christmas), so I made it with ribbon instead.  I made a button and loop closure, and just glued the ribbon to the backs of the marbles, and then glued felt on top of that.  I used pictures of my grandma's 6 grandkids, for an extra sentimental present.  I'm also making the marble magnets with pictures of the appropriate kids for my mom and each of my aunts.  Anyway, here's the completed bracelet:

If anyone bought the smaller bracelet blanks from Rings & Things, here's an idea for using the larger glass drops.  I followed the directions, but I only put six drops on the bracelet and filled in the last five blanks with sequins.  

You can pick up the theme of your bracelet.  For example, I used red and blue sequins with gold stars for the wonder woman comic bracelet.  
You could also add rhinestones, beads, or little buttons.

By the way, I'm new here.  This rocks, I've already started three new projects inspired by this site.  Yay!
