Hello, everyone Smiley I've been working on collecting the materials for this bracelet for a while and am extremely thrilled with the results! It has an aluminum 3/4" cuff base to which I added faux suede to the underside for added comfort. Then I used antiqued paper (did the crumple and coffee dye technique), silver metal filigree, copper rose pendant, and fresh water pearls to adorn the top. The paper is protected by several layers of matte spray mod podge and I used brown ink to darken the edges a bit. I think it turned out so pretty! Here are a couple more pictures (sorry they're so big >_<):

Thanks for looking!

This is super pretty. It's the perfect mix of rustic and girly.  :  )

I'm a geek, and I dispatch for a bunch of geek cops. I like writing, playing video games, and making messes while attempting to craft.

I'm still new here, so please tell me if I go wrong somewhere. I'm always up for some gentle correction.

Nice!! I really love how you used the copper rose pendant to decorate the bracelet. It goes well with the pearl beads. I'm wondering, where did you buy the materials for this?
