Wedding Photo Bracelet

I was contacted by Rosella from http://www.paintedmemoriesbyros.etsy.com/ asking me if I could make a bracelet from wedding pictures of her daughter's wedding! I'm always up for a challenge, so I said I'd give it a try. After several attempts, I think it's finally finished. She emailed me scans of a lot of photos and I picked out some features. Here's the final look:




Oh how I wish I could take photos! Anyway, the two center beads are the eyes of the bride and groom. On either side of those are parts from a menu that Rosella made and I added the date of the wedding, then the end beads on either side are their lips. Finished off with a clasp with hearts on it! All is done in antique copper bead caps and Amethyst bicones. The photos are done in browns and sephias.
