Pupper and I received from one another.

Here is what I sent to her

The chain came from two different necklaces. One is silver and the other one a darker silver.
The little wings came from some crazy earrings I had from the 80's. So did the little crystals.
the two charms in the middle and one on the side came from a charm bracelet I found in an antique/resale shop a few years ago. I had to have it! I noticed after I took this pic I changed the stone from a yellow one to green since I thought she would like a darker color better.
the pic does not show it very well but there are some wrapped colored glass near the top that I used from a bracelet I have had for way too many years.
Here is the cute bracelet pupper sent to me!!!




There are charms galore on it! I was too afraid to make the necklace too heavy by adding anymore now I am wondering if I should have!!
She listed that the charms came from all over the place.
the lock came from her teenage diary
skull came from old bf's necklace
flower charm from grandma's earring
and many other ones. Very interesting history!!
Thank you pupper!!!

Katara - I am so glad you like the necklace!  I loved it so much, I made myself one too.  Some slightly different charms, but mostly the same..

Here's the awesome bracelet Chimerix made me.  She did a great job of incorporating elements I love...stone, blues, greens, beads, knotwork.  I love it!

Side note: I received this over a week ago, but I have been sick and didn't post it right away.  Not only is Chimerix a fabulous bracelet maker...she's speedy!
