From The Couch: DIY Bracelets

So I know it's been a while since I had a "From the Couch" project.  I have a really good excuse though! I have been making a sweater.  I'm not kidding....I'm also not finished.  I'm THIS close though...and somehow I have lost motivation. Maybe it's because I am tired of looking at the color??  Whatever the reason, I will share that with you one day....soon-ish. =)
I made some bracelets though! I am really happy with the way they turned out!
This first one was inspired by a girl at work.  She had one SUPER similar that she bought.  After looking at it, I knew for sure I could make something that resembled it. Ta-da!
It's fun and different. =)
This one didn't have any inspiration.  I knew I wanted a bracelet that 'jingled' or had a dangly 'charm' type theme going for it. 
The initial bracelet was too big, so I took a section out that was perfect for an earring! Consequently I had to make a second matching earring.  I love them =)
In other news, a good friend and her husband are coming over for dinner and we will be making the invitations for our 2nd Annual Christmas Party!! I'm SO excited!

I love those beautiful earrings! I used to make jewelry all the time but just stopped doing it a couple of years ago--you have inspired me to start again!
