Patriotic Jewelry - 4th of July - Independence Day - New Jewelry to Celebrate!!

I have been very busy working with my siblings on my Dad's estate this month, but I have managed to make a few new pieces designed to adorn for the 4th of July celebration just around the corner.  My Mom surprised me by saying that she wanted a set like this one - she doesn't wear much jewelry, but I am happy to make her a set of her own.


And, my last contribution to this year's 4th of July theme is this amazing charm bracelet. 

When I pictured the finished piece in my mind, it didn't look this good.  I love it when that happens.  The colors in these beads and the variety of shapes and sizes makes it really full and its "song" is lovely.

I made the base chain from 20 gauge copper and linked the links together so it will not come apart.  I'm not sure if that is a good idea or not.  If something was to really grab it, it wouldn't give and so the wrist could be damaged.  I think there is a plus and minus evaluation to be made when considering using closed connections versus open connections.

What do you think?

I definitely like the fact that the links are together that way.. I would much rather hurt my wrist than break a piece this fun.. hehheee. The charm bracelet is simply perfect. I love the patriotic flowers and the beads coming out the bottom..

Nice job on the patriotism of the jewelry Jean. They're glorious. Don't ask me why but I haven't even got annual flowers out yet - let alone to be thinking about 4th of July.
