My Favourite Bracelet (One of anyway!) That I've Made.



This is one of my favourite bracelets that I have made. I love it coz it's so girly and vintage! I love pink, flowers and hearts. This one I always intended to be totally girly and I love how it turned out. Now my 16 year old daughter wants one! She doesn't know if she wants purple with antique silver, or the original colors of pink and copper. Now I have to figure out how much to charge her for it! lol. This Hearts and Flowers Locket Bracelet is available to buy in my etsy store, I have free worldwide postage on all items! Here's the link for the bracelet: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=24681269

My Hearts and Flowers Locket Necklace.


When I made this necklace, I was determined to make a simple locket necklace, I wasn't going to add beaded sections along the chain, I wasn't going to add flowers to it, I wasn't going to add so much 'pink color' to it. But as you can see, I FAILED!! What can I say, I love PINK, I love FLOWERS and I love the combination of PINK and COPPER together!!! I just can't seem to do simple and when I do, I don't like it, it feels unfinished. Other designers can and funnily enough I love their simple designs, they don't look unfinished. Oh well, maybe I'll have another go at SIMPLE another day!!
The Hearts and Flowers Locket Necklace is my latest necklace listing on my etsy store, the beads along the double strands of fine antique copper chain are Czech glass milky pink melon beads and between these are gorgeous milky opal pink Czech glass bell flowers. From the front of the necklace, hangs a lovely antique copper locket. The locket is heart-shaped and fully functional, you can keep two photos of loved ones inside your heart! A tiny antique copper heart charm and a gorgeous opal pink flower adorn the front of the locket, turning it from a rather plain necklace into a lovely feminine piece of jewellery. You can view the necklace from more angles in my Etsy store.
