Create your own unique Mama Bear bracelet with this kit! This is the perfect gift for yourself or the mother in your life. Place the birthstone crystals yourself, representing up to 5 children, grandchildren, etc. If you're looking for a new hobby, or just a fun and simple DIY gift idea, this is the project for you! This kit features extra blanks for practice, so that you can try out your technique and placement without the fear of wasting your bear shaped blank. Your blanks are made by me, using a jeweler's press and dies, and a jeweler's saw. Your blanks will arrive to you with the sharp burs removed, and a protective plastic film covering the mirrored finish fronts.
This listing is for one KIT, which you will use to create your own bracelet. This listing is NOT for a finished bracelet.

Kit includes: * 1, 1" aluminum circle for practicing your technique before you use your bear shapes. * 2 bear-shaped, aluminum blanks. One for practice and one for your final product. * 5, 2.6mm Swarovski flat back crystals, in the colors of your choice. (See below) * Approx. 1 yard of brown, waxed cotton, 1.5mm string for an adjustable band.
You will need to provide your own glue (I recommend a 2-part epoxy or Gorilla brand super glue gel), and something to create a seat for the crystals to set in, if you choose. You will also need to punch your own holes for the string into your blank, unless you choose the option of having me punch your holes for you.
