    i only follow yours and GemFatale's blogs on here and must say I am so INSANELY jealous of both of yours' styles.. I literally look like every other Primark/H&M mannequin..
    We only have a few charity shops and none of them have anything that is vaguely inspiring.. I won a goorgeous french vintage shirt from ebay and think the bracelet would compliment it beautifully!!

    I have to ask where you got the charms from, they are amazing!

    This is a wonderful idea. You are so creative and thoughtful in your work. I think the bracelet is just lovely.
    I'd like to enter if it's not too late, otherwise I just wanted to say how cute I think your bracelet is.
