What materials did you use? I used a link from a belt for the centerpiece of the bracelet. The link was very plain, and mostly painted black, so I painted it and filled the recesses with a glossy dimensional resin. I formed a rosy-pink paperclip into a charm (the one to the left of the centerpiece), and an old guitar string into another (the one to the right of the centerpiece). I wire-wrapped beads to create dangles, then attached them and the two charms I mentioned to a length of large-link chain from a broken belt. I added a smaller bit of chain as an extender, and attached to it a small charm that I had painted to match.

What are you most proud of? The way I was able to meld an extremely varied collection of objects into a cohesive piece of art jewelry.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Look for new ways to use ordinary objects!
