Handmade bracelet in hand-decorated gift box

For this vintage style bracelet I linked flower charms together, glued a flatback crystal in the center of each and added dangles of Swarovski crystals and filigree beads.

I also stamped and decoupaged a matching gift box, which was as much fun as making the jewelry!

Your bracelet and gift box
by: Kathleen Davis

I sure do love your bracelet- it has an old world feel to it. And making the gift box was just really nice too. I dont know anyone who would not want to receive such a lovely gift.

Gorgeous Bracelet!

Kathleen – the bracelet is absolutely beautiful – very nice use of color of crystal with the metal of the flowers. And the decorated gift box goes perfectly with it. Very nice touch!

Why not sell the boxes too?

The combination is lovely. Makes the gift so special.

I was just thinking, you are so good at designing boxes, maybe you could wholesale them to boutiques? Hand-made gift boxes would be a very unique item for high-end gift shops. Each one could be different and shouldn’t cost much in materials. Just needs your creative touch!

You never know….it could be fun.
