Tile Bracelet


The picture shows two views of my latest project.
I resized 10 Fairy images to 3/4" square and glued them onto mountboard tiles, that I had cut previously.
I then punched the holes in the side edges of the tiles, first measuring where I wanted the holes to go.
I then embossed the edges and backs of the tiles with silver embossing powder. Then covered the images on the fronts with Anita's 3D clear gloss finish to protect them.
using some strong silver yarn I joined the tiles together as shown, putting beads in between each tile.
Fortunately, I didnt need to put a fastener on, as the bracelet slips over my hand nicely.
I enjoyed making something a bit different, and will wear the bracelet tomorrow when I go to meet my friends, I wonder if anyone will notice it. LOL
