I made this project from my glitter fabric (posted directions in sewing). I cut a swatch for my wrist, sewed on a fabric image of La Virgen and seamed the edges with a tight zigzag stitch. I added rickrack, and stitched on some matching elastic. That big yellow piece is not a button - it is a vintage clip earring. I glued the clasp down and then stitched through the opening. I added a milagro charm too.

I am 100% smitten with this bracelet. So much that I plan to make more of these with all kinds of different images. The glitter is sealed down, but still so sparkly!

Peace, love, and glitter!

I just bought your book and feel very inspired. This cuff is fab!!! Is the image a photo transfer done on your printer? I am going to go read the info right now.

Thanks! I actually snipped that picture off of a piece of scrap fabric. I can never think of throwing anything away! Crafty disorder!
