comfortably light

This is one of my favourite bracelets. It is not an original idea but it is an original none-the-less. A few years ago at an Arts Fair, I saw button bracelets for sale. I made one of those mental notes, the super size kind.
When I got home from the fair, I rushed to my sewing cupboard and plucked out a piece of wide black elastic. Then I rummaged about in my button stash for white and cream gems; Mother of pearl and vintage alike. I stitched them on with black thread to make a statement. The statement was, I will never fall off, I will never fall off.
It made for a comfortably heavy cuff bracelet that somehow lightens my mood whenever I slip it on.
