New Year's Eve Bracelet (Hearts & Sparkle)

For this week's project, I had new year's eve in mind! I enjoy making black and white jewelry and I have been wanting to use these velvety covered hearts. I just went through all my bead boxes, collecting pieces and parts along the way.

I have discovered there are some similarities to the bracelet I posted yesterday AND a couple other bracelets I have posted over the last couple years. Interesting!! What does that mean?

It reminds me of the people in Close Encounters when they couldn't get the shape of that volcano like structure out of their heads....(this is where the theme song from close encounters or even the twilight zone comes in!)

I like to put a good sized dangle on bracelets like this that are only covered across the top of the wrist with heavy beads. The dangle will help stabilize it along with the chain being form fitted to the wrist.

I hope everyone is having a great weekend!!

This is gorgeous Lisa, the velvet hearts look great. Do you feel they'll stand up to a bit of wear and tear on a wrist. They always look so fragile to me.

This looks like a great piece for New Year's Eve, together with a black dress.

I love dramatic tones and that bracelet works well for a very dramatic holiday!

Perfect for New Years Eve...but you know this could also be dressed down to be worn often in the new year!!! That to me makes it even more special!

I'm a huge fan of dangles...I like the movement!
