I saw this darling little bracelet in a magazine recently and thought I'd give it a try today. I didn't really have the right color beads but I wanted to experiment anyway. I had this beautiful fish focal bead that I'd purchased last year from a bead maker in Austria and I was dying to make something with it. I cut my wires and I pounded, sawed and riveted as per the instructions THEN I went to try it one before heading out to the garage (husband's studio) to proudly show my DH what I'd created. Well, I think it might fit my 12 year old grand daughter if I'm lucky but she probably isn't interested because it isn't very colorful - so - I will search out some of my senior friends in the neighborhood and see who it fits so I will have some idea of sizing when I post it later. You know, some days are just like a box of chocolates and that's exactly where I'm headed!! Toodles my dears and happy smithing!!
