A few months ago I had one of those weird dreams where you just relive something you did. I was dreaming about being in a Penny candy store when I was little! I woke up and was thinking about it and decided I wanted to make a penny candy bracelet. I totally forgot about it, like most of the things I think of at 3:00 AM. I need to put paper and pencil beside my bed. A post by DollyMix jarred my memory last week, and I finally made it. I had 2 empty spaces so I added blue and pink candy looking glass beads. It took about 3 hours to make. I seem to work faster when I'm doing something I'm excited about. lol. The wax bottle is translucent clay rolled very thin with translucent on the top and bottom. The candy cig and lollipop stick is ultralight with wire armature.

 Here is what is on it:

1 LemonHead
1 Piece Dolly Mix
1 Goetzes Caramel Bullseye
1 Grape Lollipop
2 Pieces Good n Plenty
1 Flying Saucer Wafer
1 Green M & M / Smartie
1 Piece Bazooka Joe
1 Swedish Fish
1 Orange Gumball
1 Candy Cigarette
1 Pair Wax Lips
1 Nik-L-Nip wax bottle filled with fruit juice
