I finished a few new charm bracelets this week!  Sometimes it seems like even though I'm always working on them, I don't have any new ones for weeks on end, then all of a sudden, I have a bunch of new ones done all at once!  This one was inspired by my good friends, David & Amanda, who love the great outdoors, especially in their home state of MI.  But while I know they like camping, when I think of them, I always think of the nights we spent around the fire in their yard, toasting marshmallows, enjoying good beer, and talking late into the night.  This is my ode those nights.



The charms include Camp Sign, Oak Leaf, Hiking Boots, Beer, Campfire, Grill, Caravan, Flashlight, Backpack, Pocket Knife, Picnic Table, Hot Dog on Fork, Tent, Lantern, Girl in Sleeping Bag, Acorns, & Water Canteen.



The beads are a mix of Czech glass leaves, and glass and semi-precious stone in shades of forest, leaf, sap, amber, fawn, and mahogany.

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

Amanda's a lucky girl. Not only does she have a beautiful piece, but also the memories of her times spent with you!

Lol, I'm kind of on a roll designing bracelets inspired by people I know.  They seem to often be my favorite pieces too, like the Night Owl one inspired by my friend BJ (a man who doesn't even wear charm bracelets), and the Librarian one, which was also inspired by Amanda.  I think the costume designer in me likes having the added "character study" of having known them for a while, "beyond the script" so to speak.

I love the night owl bracelet! I think when we're truly inspired, it brings out the best work!
