Texas Bracelets

My local jewelry guild, Brazos Valley Jewelry Arts Guild or BVJAG has a quarterly challenge.  This quarters challenge was to use something "Green or Recycled" in your design.  I had just received new license plates a few weeks ago so I cut the word Texas off the old plate, and sanded the edges.  I then punched small holes and attached it to a leather cuff using silver daisy beads, micro screws, and nuts.  It is really comfortable to wear and reflective too.

 Here are some pottery Texas flag cuff beads I have in my Etsy shop.  I have made one of these in to a bracelet also.  I just love my state of Texas.
