Project Description:

The TierraCast heart lock and key toggle was the inspiration for this piece. To go with the vintage, romantic vibe, I decided to pair it with cherry and chocolate colored glass pearls. So fun and flirty!

This bracelet was a cinch to work up, & looks so nice! It's a color combination I would not have thought up. And I like the concept! A new favorite!
