A preface: I am a total Twilighter. Smiley

I wanted a Bella's bracelet to show my love for the series, but I a. didn't have $75 to spend on a nice one and b. am one of those people who thinks they can make everything themselves (not always true). I also didn't want a brass charm; even though they look pretty, brass just isn't the same as hand-carved wood.

I set out to carve myself up a little wolf, with balsa wood and an exacto knife, and I think I got a decent replica on my third go-round. I popped it on a chain along with a crystal heart, and ta-da:



A close up of the little wolf:

I actually just used watered down brown paint and made sure it wasn't totally covering the balsa's base color. Then I sealed it.

And, mmm Edward, indeed! Wink
