Here's a bracelet I made about a year and a half ago... I will always love old scrabble tiles---who won't right? I drilled these from end to end vs. right through the top. It's a little tricky because you have to drill both ends, hoping the holes line up (or use a ruler for insurance). The beads and charms were collected from broken jewelry and necklaces. The silver chain bracelet I believe was some sort of extender so I took the beady end of an old necklace and made it part of the closure.
I'm hanging out in the Plaid booth at CHA this week making jewelry. Stop by and say hey if you're in the neighborhood!
