My blog turned three years old yesterday. I waited until today to do my anniversary post because Bead Soup kicked off yesterday. Both events deserved their own day in my way of thinking. To celebrate, I thought I’d post this bracelet trio. All of them are darkened brass. I am so loving brass right now.
The bottom two bracelets I purchased and then darkened. One has a channel running along the outer edge – I added a strip of beads, torn sari silk and a coin charm. The second is plain. The third, a bangle I made from brass wire, formed, textured, and darkened. Here’s to three years and 601 posts.
