You Are My Sunshine Bracelet - Purchase Here
I made it into the studio today, finished up orders from the weekend and had a little time to spare to experiment with a vintage silver butter knife. I have had this lovely little butter knife sitting on my bench for months just waiting for the right expression to be stamped onto its gleaming surface.
Today, I grabbed my stamps and began hammering - You Are My Sunshine onto the blade.
Maybe I was thinking about the movie, Oh, Brother Where Art Thou with George Clooney or maybe being at the bench for fun brought the expression to mind. Whatever, the reason - I really love it. I have a deep love of cast off vintage silver. It's just too pretty to sit in a box!
I chose a coral bead, faceted turquoise beads, a lustrous pearl and a sterling silver flower to adorn the side of the bracelet. I love the combination together and it reminds me of Spring blossoms.
What do you think? What expression would you choose to wear on your wrist as a visual reminder as you go about your day?
