Toni's Bracelet Completed

It's finished!!! Man am I glad it's done too. I finally finished sewing on the buttons for this piece last night. This bracelet was definitely a challenge for me. It was one of those projects where you just go at it and hit it from all directions until you get what you want. Toni had come to me with her idea of what she wanted out of this bracelet and I went to work on it. I feel like I went round and round with this thing, adding a flower or some beads here and there. Then I would just leave it and come back to it and add a little more until it looked right. I learned a lot from this project, but man am I glad it's done.
I presented it to Toni today and she loved it. It fit her just perfect too. I am so happy. She will be wearing it in her wedding this weekend and I am so glad that she asked me to make it for her. I put a lot of love into it and I wish her many, many years of love and companionship with her soon to be husband.

Thanks James, it was fun to make. I need to get started on something new. I've been on vacation for too long. Later
