Remember these suckers I talked about so long ago?
Its okay, I barely remember them too.
But don't worry, I was looking out for you and took some pictures!
Check 'em out:
I gave these to all the girls that helped out with the wedding, including my mom. I purchased sterling silver pre-stamped charms and chain from two different Etsy vendors. I got the crystal beads and clamps at at bead store only minutes from my house. I picked a different color bead for each girl, to match her personality/style.
They came out much more delicate then I originally wanted, but in the end, I loved them! I've gotten great feedback too, which is wonderful.
Once I got going, it only took me about 20 minutes per bracelet. I had never done anything like this before, so it was a crapshoot at the beginning, but I was determined. I would like to eventually stamp my own tags (if I continue doing something like this) but didn't have time to this go-round.
Have any of you tried a new "skill" lately? How was your success rating?
