Self Indulgence Pays Off

I made this bracelet without thinking about anything other than the colours and things I like. It's an eclectic mix of buttons, crystals, lampwork and copper hearts. I had in mind that it was a piece only a "mother" could love and after a few outings it would stay with me forever. Couldn't have been more wrong, at a recent Christmas Fair it was the bell of the ball and was snaffled up by a very appreciative customer (or more accurately her Father under strict orders to buy !).
I waved a fond farewell and thought maybe I should do more of this following your instinct thing, make what you love if it sells great if not keep it. You made it with yourself in mind anyway.
