Blast from the past
I unearthed some bracelets I made as a teenager, and was surprised to find them still looking like new. Decided to wear them to the beach a couple of weeks ago. They look funky all stacked together.
The beads on the rainbow braided cord are made of polymer clay, handmade by my 18-year old self. The flower is mother of pearl, strung on beaded thread. The blue and green bracelet is beaded memory wire. I used to make lots of memory wire bracelets and cuffs back when I was in college. Happy to see that these trinkets have stood the test of time.
