A Christmas Present {custom work}

It's a common thing for me to create custom work, and I love every minute of it...especially a good challenge, like this bracelet.

All the various beads around the bracelet are representative of each grandchild in the family and it was created for the Grandma. A list was given to me with each child's favorite color and I was to "use my own imagination" and create something fun with each bead. At first I was super stressed. lol I kept thinking that I wasn't going to make it exactly as it should. I sat down on various days to torch and I pretended that each bead was it's own little world. I didn't want them to be overly busy but still full of life, and I wanted them to compliment each other. The end result is just darling and I was so pleased with how it turned out.

I hope Grandma likes it too!

Each grandchild's initial is by their "personal" bead.

The oldest grandchild, a girl, got a different type of letter charm. :) There's gotta be something special for being the oldest, right?

At the toggle we put a simple sterling 'love' charm. The nice thing about this particular charm is that the 'love' is printed on both sides.

If you are ever interested in custom work, simply email me and we can begin a dialogue of what you want and what I can achieve for you. It's always so nice to have a personal piece that will be with you forever.

This particular piece was $264.99.
