Cuff Bracelets

I have recently been recycling a few of those knitted belts that come with sweaters into cuff bracelets.  These are really easy to make and just about anything that can be glued or sewn can be added.  Each bracelet is a work of art! 
The porcelain face in the first bracelet was recycled from another piece that Pam Crawford created for the book titled: "Jewelry Beyond time" (available by clicking the book cover in the right side bar).  The other bits were found at various flea markets or yard sales. 
The fringe was recycled fabric trim from yet another project, so these awesome bracelets were very inexpensive to make.  I just need to add a lobster claw closure and they are ready to wear!  Great Mother's Day gifts!
