Every year I give my mom a "something" of the month club as part of her holiday gift.  Previous gifts have been vests (those pre-printed vests you find at the fabric store to cut and sew), pins and socks.  This year, I found a kit to make a similar bracelet for Christmas.  Once I finished that bracelet I realized how easy it would be to recreate the bracelet with those button collections you find in the craft stores.  She likes to decorate everything (including herself) for the holidays, so I think she'll like them.

The box - pretty innocuous - what could it be?

A bracelet a month!

Jan, Feb, March & April

May June July Aug & Sept

Sept Oct Nov & Dec

They were fun - but my first foray into this sort of thing and MAN they took FOREVER!!!  (I'm sure it would be no big deal to you regular jewelry makers, but this was a real challenge for me - which is okay cuz it makes me so happy that they turned out.)

It's not that I don't want to swap, it's that I often don't have time.  But feel free to ask (especially if it's one that's not too time consuming).

These look a lot nicer than anything I would have expected from a pre-assembled kit. I love your own twist on them for the different holidays. Very nicely done.

Great idea! I love the details you added for each month.
Well done!
And I can say jewelry get easier the more you play with it...although harder with the more beads you have to choose from. Cheesy

I love this. What I like best is I could probably figure a way to do this with no metal for my mom. What a stellar idea.

Thanks for all the kind comments - nothing like a Craftster ego boost after finally finishing a big project Grin

These are fun! I love the flair and different pieces used in the bracelets. Don't judge yourself so harshly! All the "I'm not artist/designer/whatever" people always come of with some of the most innovative and amazingly cool works, just like these pieces .

These are so awesome.  I love them.  I make simple bracelets.  I wish I knew how you did these, I would love to try and make one.  At least one. Wink
