Very Vintage Challenge

Today is the day to reveal the what I made with the Very Vintage fall challenge kit from Michelle Mach.

I was so excited to get started on my project that I didn't snap a photo of the kit when I received it, but here is a photo from Michelle's blog


And here is one of the items that I created, a bracelet

I incorporated the Vintaj branch and used a hole punch to create a hole in each end of the branch.  Then 24g copper wire was used to attach 2 leaves to the branch by wire wrapping.  The acorn bead cap that was included in the kit was added to a ceramic bead from Gaea.  Another ceramic bead from Gaea was transformed into a link with wire wrapped loops.  I added Gypsy Ribbon from B'Sue Boutiques, a small amount of antique brass chain from Antiqued and a toggle clasp from Miss Fickle Media.

I will have more photos of another creation later this week, I am having some technical difficulties with my camera and so am unable to upload to my computer.

  3. Love the ribbon you used, that really set the tone for it. The clasp is simple, and I like it with this piece. I'm so jealous of ya'll using hole punches. As you'll see on mine, I didn't have one! :) Really nice job!

  10. Love the mix of materials on the bracelet, especially that pretty ribbon! I would totally wear this myself. I never thought about using the branch for a bracelet--great idea!

    Hope to see you in another challenge!

  11. Very wearable bracelet, not too heavy-handed on the charms (not that bunches of charms aren't great, too). I just like the clean, opn look of this!

  14. Thanks for all the wonderful comments. I had to curve the branch in order to maintain the curve of the bracelet and was scared that I would bend or break it. I am still working on a necklace that I hope to share this week so come back for another peak.
