Free Spirit Bracelet Project

The inspiration for this bracelet is a nod at my free spirited niece, Kayla, she is graduating college! She is already well traveled and is ready to take on the world! The mix of metal finishes, chains and charms are the epitome of that free spirit I know and love. The boho chic of the Czech glass beaded chain and the whimsy of hearts and dragonflies just to retain some of our femininity! Wear your sense of adventure!
