Hope I'm not the only one old enough to remember playing marbles on the sidewalk...

This bracelet is made of assorted round glass beads, and three actual marbles I got at a flea market last year. You'd think that since I normally do seashells, the "summer" theme would have been a gimme - but no. The first thing I thought of was that bag of marbles! This was the motivation I needed to actually try to use them.

Hope you like it!

I really love this, and I would totally wear it everywhere.
I think the marbles give it that sandglass look, so pretty!

MARBLES! I used to love marbles! I'd have never thought to use them in jewellery, that's so clever! I love the colour theme going on in this, it's beautiful Smiley
