turquoise nature charm bracelet

This bracelet is for my daughter, as she's still bedridden it will be a while before she'll be able to wear it. I gave it to her and told her she'll be able to use it to strengthen her arms when she's a little better lol - it's quite a weight. Meanwhile it's hanging beside her bed for her to see.

I've used lamp beads and 2mm Rattail, from Ebay.

My charms are from various places.
 The leaf, tree and butterfly is stash, too long to remember the seller. The bee is Ribbon girl, the hummingbirds, flower and hand-made (isn't that cute) charm are from The Bead Shop


I've used decorative button knots, which is learned to make from the book Ornamental Knots for Beaded Jewellery. It's by Suzen Millodot and she has loads of wonderful u tube tutorials too. 

With sliding button knots as the closure.

Wow, Linda, this is so beautiful. I'm sure that Paula is enjoying looking at it. I love your colors and all of the gorgeous items you've added to it. I've made a couple of bracelets, but nothing as beautiful as yours. I wear a medical alert bracelet and I hated the generic one that came with it. I saw some online that were so much prettier, so I ordered similar gems and made my own. So lovely to hear from you. Oh, and congratulations on your new award. You certainly deserve it. Hugs, dj
