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!
Judy

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