Heart Bracelet

Hello everyone!
I went searching through my photos today and found this bracelet I made for a friend.

Very simple design!
The heart bezel is from Spellbinders Media Mixage line, MB1-005 Hearts One. I cut a heart of orange craft foil with the matching die, MD1-005 Hearts One. Perfect fit! Next I textured it with Spellbinders MT-005 Grate Works Three texture plate. It looks like little "x"s and "o"s. I sanded the embossed pattern to reveal the silver color of the foil.
I cut another heart from a piece of black craft foam, the stuff found in the kid's craft section. I placed that in the bezel first. It's simply a space filler to bring the foil heart closer to the top of the bezel. It cuts easily and works really well. Once the heart was in the bezel, I added ICE Resin. It's so clear it's hard to see in my photo!

I fashioned a bracelet from 2 lengths of chain and a lobster clasp. A jump ring holds the heart on the chain.
I made a quick pouch of burlap in stead of gift wrap! One of my favorite wrapping techniques for jewelry!

Happy Creating!

Oh, this is adorable! Love the burlap, too! Very classy (in a burlappy sort of way!).
