That, my friend, is a very awesome piece of work and makes me want to go make some just for myself and my amigos! You're very creative ^_^

That's awesome! I was searching bracelet deviations and I found this, it's great. I wish I had some kind of talisman too. Especially a bracelet that I could wear everywhere.

Unfortunately I don't think I have the skill to make one. >:

It's really quite simple. I can't wear metal so I used cord and beads. You could use a thrift store chain link braclet or a cheapy from a store. Just find charms that represent you and add them with jump rings.
You can DO it!

Love the design and the idea and the colours and the beads and charms... gorgeous :D I did something a bit like this with beads and stuff that meant things to me, but it was a standard charm bracelet, not all different and groovified like yours. This is stunning.

Thank you. This is a very special and personal bracelet to me. It's actually kinda hard to have it out there...like showing your soul to everyone. I've been thinking of making a new one...updated.
It would be easy to 'groovify', as you say, your standard charm bracelet by weaving a strand of beads or fiber around it, adding some dangles and such.
Or make another! I would love to see a 'you' bracelet.

That's an interesting thought. I sort of consider my bracelet a work in progress anyway (I add and change stuff as I go along) so it'd be fun to do that :D

this is an awesome bracelet. Where did you get the "integrity" charm? that is beautiful -- all of the talismans on it are beautiful!

All of your work is very good! I like this bracelet especially, so creative, and I've always liked talismans. This is a great way of putting them together to wear. Do you have an online store?

I'll have to peruse the bead shops and see what I've got at home... I'm in no hurry though

I'd like to put feathers on it, but it would take approximately three seconds before my cat ate it :(
