On the Eighth Day of Christmas

On the eighth day of Christmas
My true love gave to me...
An antique bronze sea glass bracelet
(You can view the listing here)
I collected this piece of sea glass on one of my first trips  to the ocean just to look for sea glass.  This piece is probably from a small brown bottle, because of the curve that it has. 
I tried using it as a pendant but it didn't lay right and kept turning.  One morning my daughter was playing with the sea glass and put this piece on her wrist...and I had an "a-ha!" moment!  Sea glass is beautiful as a necklace and earrings...why not a bracelet?
This bracelet is still one of my favorite pieces.  I had to figure out how to have a loop at both ends of the sea glass but not have the wire wrapping become the focus of the bracelet. 
I also created infinity links in the same type of wire (but a thicker gauge)  to help showcase the sea glass.
It's already week 2 of December...what special holiday plans do you have for this week?  We are getting our Christmas tree and decorating it. I can't wait!
