mother's bracelet



My mom has eight children. I wanted to make her something soldered for Mother's Day that had her children's names, but I also didn't want her to look like Mr. T with tons of charms on one necklace. The solution was a charm bracelet with tiny 1/2"X1/2" charms. Each charm has the initials of my brothers and sisters and their birth order. I made one for my mother in law too and put charms of horses and some of her other favorites in between the soldered charms since she only had five soldered charms on her bracelet. Can you believe I said the word ONLY to five charms? Five charms equals five kids and I think that's quite a lot!


I haven't put them in my etsy shop yet because I have to figure out pricing. The tiny charms (believe it or not) are a bit more difficult because of their size, yet I still want to make them affordable for those who have many children. We'll see...

These are amazing, I'm needing to learn how to solder bits so I can use them for scrapbooking. I'm with you on Mr. T. Do you do tutorials on soldering??? hun
