Lillian Bracelet

I finished the bracelet I have been working on using my grandmother’s locket. Along with the heart locket, I used a Lily of the Valley brass finding because my Grandmother’s name was Lillian. Ceramic rose painted beads highlight the romance of the heart locket. Brass links with white patina accentuate the vintage qualities of the other findings.



Originally, I was going to make it a multi-strand bracelet with small, matte white beads, but decided against that. Somehow, that wasn’t looking right to me.





I  want to remove the current clasp so I can add a toggle clasp. I did not have one on hand to use. What do you all think of it?

  2. I love this bracelet! The Lillian bracelet is lovely, one-of-a-kind, and the first bracelet in my Lillian collection inspired by purple and gold Thai water lilies.
