since I don't have siblings, all of my mom's "mother's" jewelry has been her's, mine, and my dad's birthstones.  this year for Mother's Day, I decided to make her something for the first time in a while.  we both wear those Alex & Ani bracelets, and they gave me the idea for this.  while inventorying a Michaels, I found these bracelet blanks and round metal blanks that I knew would be perfect for my idea.  using my metal stamping set, I stamped "FAMILY"  on the bracelet, and our initials on each of the round blanks.  I have a "nasty" habit of buying those nail art kits with tiny rhinestones, and one set happened to be birthstones, so I glued our corresponding rhinestone above each initial.



unfortunately, my mom has bumped the bracelet on things and the charms have fallen off.  but she found them, and asked me if there was a way to keep them from falling off if it happened again.  I came up with the idea to wrap purple wire around the end that unclasps and they haven't fallen off since.  it's just not shown in the picture because I added the wire after taking it and never took a new one.
