that looks great!  i love stuff like this because it can't be reproduced.  it's so full of interesting things to look at. not only for those admiring but for the person wearing it Smiley great idea!

That's wicked neat-o!  But is it comfortable?  I would think it would get in the way.  But with a bracelet as smashingly rad as that, I'd probably put up with it!  Bravo!

what a beautiful charm bracelet!  It turned out great, beautiful colors and a very nice shape. Great idea for the use of random earrings and buttons. Thanks for sharing and posting the tutorial, you have inspired me  Smiley

artasanoutlet, like I already said, you have inspired me, and yesterday on a jewelry making frenzy I did my version of a charm bracelet. I did not use chain, I used memory wire and I used all sortes of beads, buttons and lost earrings that I had. I think I like how it turned out, but I like more yours  Smiley
Here is a pic of my version, hope you like it. Thanks for the inspiration!

oh no! that's adorable!  i love that you used a crochet flower too.  on my next one that i've started i have a crochet flower as well as some small lace flowers and odd patches.  i think they look really cute when you think beyond the normal bead and charm.  great job and thanks for sharing!

How did you attach all the beads? Did you use headpins? I love it! Looks like the stuff at So Charmed!

i used various sized jump rings.  i have had one bead fall off, but i could feel it so it was saved.  it's really the best way to attach unless you're using a thread base for the bracelet, then i would suggest sewing the items on.  could get tough with all the baubles adding up though.

Couldn't agree more; it's as unique as the person wearing it.  Great job Smiley

A couple of hints & tips:  I've made my own charm bracelet with said lost earrings, but why stop there?  You can use pendants from necklaces you no longer wear (how many heart charms can you have? lol), and I've even added a couple of rings that I don't wear anymore.  And you could do the same thing to create a keychain.  Oh, and for some of the earrings, I didn't even bother taking them off the wire; instead I just wound the wire around the link a couple of times--gives it a custom-made look, at least for me Smiley
