Irish Dance Charm Bracelets and the Three Rivers Feile

I finally finished that Irish Dance Charm Bracelet I mentioned recently.  Here are a few views.


There's a silver Trinity, an antique brass locket and a sterling silver Irish dancer.  I'm going to put a picture of each of my girls in the locket!


There's and antique gold clover, an old "Lucky" charm of mine and a sterling silver Ghillie, or Irish dance soft shoe.


There's a sterling silver Claddaugh and a four leaf clover encased in resin.  I've also used pearls, of course, in the glass, coin and freshwater varieties!  I've also added faceted crystal beads for a little more sparkle.  It's approximately 7 1/2" long on an antique brass double link chain bracelet with a pewter toggle clasp.  I've made a few of these before, all unique.  Here's a peek at another one. 


This one's a bit more plain.  You might even say elegant.  And here's one that sold on Etsy.


There are others, too, all unique.  I hope to be making more in the near future for my Etsy shop.  If you're interested in purchasing one I would be happy to talk to you about your style, etc. and how I might make one for you as a feisanna mama (as I like to call myself!) or even for your daughter, grandaughter, neice or friend!  Click on View My Complete Profile in the right sidebar and it'll take you to "Contact me."

I have Irish dance on the brain these days as my girls and I will be attending the Three Rivers Feile in Des Moines, Iowa the first weekend in August.  It's being run by their dance school, the Foy School of Traditional Irish Dance and Iowa Irish, Inc.  We're pretty excited.  It should be a lot of fun, after the five hour drive, that is! :)  Oh yeah ~ and if you know of anyone in the Chicago area who is trying to get rid of a size 2 1/2 pair of hard shoes, let me know.  We need them!

And if you're in the Des Moines area, stop by the Polk County Convention Complex in downtown Des Moines on Saturday, August 7th.  The competition starts at 8:30 a.m. and runs almost all day!  It's a grand time!  

Hope you all have a great weekend!

To be honest, I am not a big fan of the color green, but this is absolutely gorgeous! Great Work!

I stopped by to introduce myself... My name is Sherry and I have recently joined the Bloggerette Sorority. I am a newbie to the blogging world, (3 wks!) so I missed the rush. I am however looking forward to joining in on all the fun in the future! I would be honored if you came by my blog at http://scrappingwithsherry1.blogspot.com/ Hope to see you there!
