Earring Gone Bracelet

Pewter & Blue Bracelet
The Lost Earring Project by Wink Artisans

I scored big! I was at a meeting early this week, when one of my fellow crafters from the SD Craft Monsters handed me a bag with all sorts of jewelry just before the meeting started. Clearly, this was for #TheLostEarringProject; I was so stoked that I quickly browsed through it to see what treasures I had just been granted.  One of those treasures was a broken pewter and blue earring.  It was missing the earhook and it was in bad shape.  The pewter bead caught my attention and made a mental note to take a closer look as soon as I got to the studio. 

The Earring
The following day at the studio, I took the beads off the wire and decided to make a quick and simple stretch bracelet. I cleaned up the pewter bead and paired it with royal blue, tiger eye, beads along some spacer beads and voilà, I had a new stunning bracelet.  I've been wearing it ever since.
