I spent two years at this great Americorps program called City Year and made four really great friends while I was there.  Unfortunately, now we are separated by distance, so I tried to make them all pretty bracelets that captured their personalities.

Crys is obsessed with button bracelets, so I made one for her.  There's tons of empty space, too, for her to add charms and beads from her collection of broken jewlery Smiley

Jeni loves the Starfish Story (http://www.ordinarypeoplechangetheworld.com/articles/the-starfish-story.aspx).

Michelle is a total hippie.  The chain is a broken necklace tied into knots in between the beads.  I found the shell at the beach.

In all honesty, Megyn got this one because the button bracelet I tried to make her foiled me three times.  But this is definitely something that all of us agreed is totally Megyn.

Sorry about the long-winded story behind the bracelets!
