The Last Valentine's Day Idea (#18) - Glass Bead Charm Bracelet

Only 16 Days Left Until Valentine's Day!

For the last Valentine's Day idea project I was basically inspired by a left over length of copper chain. It was just the right size for a bracelet, so I pulled out some copper bead caps, a copper heart toggle and grabbed my box of pink glass beads. I'd completely forgotten about some small pink hearts and the last of the Rings & Things blog partner lampwork heart beads which I'd put in the same box. I wrapped the hearts and other pink glass beads with antiqued copper wires and the fancy copper caps, and used some lovely iridescent coated dark pink matte beads for accents.

And that's it for the Valentine's day idea posts! Thanks for following along, it was a lot of fun and I have 18 great Valentine's gift suggestions to list and display at shows.

Also, today and tomorrow are the last days to enter to win the cute Valentine's Day bracelet, all it takes to be entered is a comment! Say "Enter me in the bracelet giveaway" on any post this month. If you're on Twitter and RT any of my tweets this month you'll get another entry. If you're a fan or become a fan of Dawno's on Facebook and leave a comment on any post there with "Enter me in the bracelet giveaway", you get another entry - so there's a total of 3 entries you can make towards the giveaway.

Random drawing will be held on Sunday - and if selected, you'll get the bracelet in plenty of time for Valentine's Day!

FTC compliance notice of material connection: The lampwork heart bead, as noted above, was provided to me for free, to be used for design and/or review purposes by Rings & Things.

Thank you, Dave, not only for the nice comment here, but inspiring the entire series! If I do make an e-book (interesting idea!) you'll get the dedication!
