Sweet Charity Vintage Charm Bracelet



Sweet Charity took me twice as long to make as my usual charm bracelets because I double-charmed/beaded/pearled (is "pearled" a word?) it.  I love the look of a really full bracelet.  So I beaded one side of the links.  Then I went back and added charms to the other side of the links.  I also added some vintage treasures inherited from a friend.  Just perfect.



So, how awesome are these photos?  As close to professional-looking as I've come thus far, no?  The light box is too cool for words as far as how it lights the object just right for a great close-up photo.  Also, it's amazing what your camera can do when you actually set the functions properly (I finally read the manual!).  So from now on I should be able to capture the essence of the jewelry as I'd hoped I would.    


I know I said I'd talk about a jewelry-making book I was reading but that will have to wait until next time since I couldn't wait to share this charm bracelet with you.  And, oh yeah, I changed the template for my blog background.  Again.  I think this one's the winner but there's always room for improvement........and how could I forget to say "HaPpY nEW yEaR!"  Seriously.  Ciao for now.
