Some more Christmas presents, but aimed for my pen pals. One is in Arizona, and she's the one obsessed with anything Alice in Wonderland. I made her AIW earrings a few months back, and this is the really cute Cheshire Cat button bracelet I made for her:



The buttons are supposed to be the stripes, and I hot glued two orange eyes onto random buttons.




Complete with an adorable heart clasp:


And I love how it looks on the part that's supposed to press against the wrist:


I'm hoping she likes it, too! This sucker needed a big box to wrap, and I had to send it through the post office in this big envelope in order to fit the bracelet box, the inch-thick letter, and the Christmas card.

Now that I know how to make this sort of bracelet, I think I'll make more. Thanks to my mom for modeling the bracelet (she has super skinny wrists, as you can see, so this didn't fit too well on her).

And this set of earrings is going to my friend in Japan for Christmas:



Does anyone know what the circles are called? They're like glass or ceramic or shells or something, but I haven't got a clue what they're really called.

Here's the back of them:


They were very easy to make, but look adorable! I'm definitely making a ton more of these! Before I wrapped them up:


These were easy to ship to Japan, too. Surprisingly cheap, too. I thought I'd be shelling out 20 dollars but the lady at the post office charged me 2 dollars for shipping and 1.09 for the medium envelope I sent the earrings and a card in.

That doesn't sound good at all Undecided It's fun to exchange snail mail, but the stamp costs can add up unless you buy the Forever stamps. Is your mom creeped out by strangers exchanging mail? That was the biggest issue with my mom until I explained to her that stalkers don't typically hang out on crafting/writing sites.

Your jewelry looks very nice.  The translucent shells look like capiz shells.  I hope that's the right spelling.

Yeah but she still has issues with strangers giving each other mail. Maybe when I'm 18
