"This won't do.  What's the matter with you?  All it takes is faith and trust.  Oh!  And something I forgot -- dust!"
"Dust?"
"Yup, just a little bit of pixie dust."



This wrap bracelet is inspired by the scene in Peter Pan where Wendy, John and Michael fly for the first time.  The focal piece is a small glass capsule with a mix of transparent rainbow glitter and glow-in-the-dark glitter with silver spacer beads on either side.  One says "faith" and the other "trust".



I still haven't quite gotten the hang of taking pictures of glow-in-the-dark stuff, so I apologize for the blur, but here's a pic of the pixie dust glowing in the dark.



The bracelet itself represents the night sky on the way to Neverland with midnight blue satin cord braided with silver beading chain hung with silvertone star charms.



It's a bit loose on my vaguely creepy plaster hand model, but it wraps around my wrist perfectly three times.

This is amazingly cool. I don't wear bracelets often, but I wish I wore them more. This one would break that rule for sure. There's so much going on with the tube, the beads, the braid, and the stars - yet they all form one coherent idea! Truly magnificent.

This is awesome. I loved Peter Pan as a kid and I love that you chose the flying scene to interpret. I love the glow-in-the-dark pixie dust capsule.

I am amazed. Beautiful, mystical, flying, fun, whimsy and Child-likexAdult-ish. Shocked You did an incredible job with this p.p.p. [(petey.pan.pixie.)] bracelet!!!!

***FYI: Kinda silly/funny story- When I was a young girl, Peter Pan was my invisible friend 'til I was about 11 [(I think?)].
So when I saw this bracelet, it immediately touched me in a special way!  ...ahhh silly memories... woot  Tongue
