What NOT to do--
Placing big, chunky gemstones this close to the clasp is NOT a good thing. While it looks lovely (IMHO) it just doesn't want to lay nicely against the wrist. You would think after the hundreds of bracelets I have made, I would know that one by now!
Anyway--today will be spent re-making this bracelet and hopefully moving on the the earrings my mother would like!!
