I recently made these bracelets for the Hunger Games Swap. The first one I made cutting a sterling silver napkin ring in half. I hand-stamped the phrase on the silver and wired it to a replacement watchband I had lying around.





The second bracelet was based on an item on my partner's Pintrest. I used a brass arrow stamping and leather cord. I have lots of pics of this one, because it's hard to see it properly.








I haven't posted on this board for a long time. It feels good. Smiley Let me know what you guys think!

Your partner will be rocking those cool pieces soon!

I love that you incorporated the "real or not real" line.

Did you see that Suzanne Collins posted today a bit about the upcoming movie?

p.s. I did several HG themed jewelry pieces awhile back, and loved every minute of it. It's such an inspiring trilogy!

I just saw the huger games yesterday! I loved the movie and when I got out I said I would have to make one of these!  Where did you find the arrow and the metal? Did you use a tutorial? Its amazing!
