New! Fused Glass Charm Bracelets

Normally, I do most of my creating at the beginning of the year but somehow most of the work has been in the past couple of months.  In my prior post, I showed a picture of a fused glass stretch bracelet.  Here's another type of bracelet: a charm bracelet with fused glass dangles.

The inspiration for this is my charm bracelet watch.  I receive some many compliments on it that I thought about how I could make a charm bracelet using fused glass.  To make this, I first found the relevant components that would work on the bracelet.  Then I measured the size so I could make the right sized glass pieces to fit.  The bracelet that I had pictured in my mind didn't work as well as the gaps between charms were too wide, so I next found beads that would work.  I'm still toying around with the design a little (considering adding a toggle clasp) but overall I'm happy with how it turned out.

Let me know what you think and if you have any suggestions for improvement.
