Altered Bracelet

Hi Everyone - I hope your Sunday is going well. A big hello to Shirley-Anne, 'Eatareeces', Sharon and 'Oxford6' who have joined me on this creative journey.  Blogger won't allow me to see your blog names or send a message to you, so please let me have your blog addresses so I can come visit you.

This is a second short post for today. I have had this bracelet on the make for months now and decided I must get it finished. It was a car-boot find and as soon as I saw it I could see how I could alter it.
So here it is.

This first photo shows you what the bracelet looked like during transition and you can see that the discs were empty and had holes in the middle, the top 3 discs show the changes being made.

This second and third photos show you the completed project with photos of my son Ben, my daughter-in-law Bev and grandaughters Becca, Ella and Maddison. The holes have been filled with gold sequins to keep the overall effect.

Thankyou to those who have kept me in their thoughts this week and asked how Tuesday went. The sun came out and we celebrated a wonderful woman's life. It was lovely to see family and friends together even though it was a sad occasion. I just have the internment to finalise now. I feel so blessed to have so many blogging friends who have been keeping a check on me, so thankyou again for all your support and friendship, I have really appreciated it.

I have been a bit of a bad blogger this week, but I am going to go hopping now and come and see some of you.

Have a great day and have fun.

Take care, luv and hugs {brenda} xoxox
