Brad Bracelet

I made my first Brad Bracelet Friday after the lovely gals on SCS posted a link to the Blog below with directions:

I didn't like the way the brads were "sitting" in the chain I found so I had to stray from these directions a tiny bit.
I chose Brads by Scrap Metal from my local craft store that I thought my daughter, Megan, would like.
Then I cut my chain into three link sections. Next I used the "legs" of the brad to link my sections togeter by slipping a link onto one leg and then curling the leg around it and tucking it underneath the brad.
I added a few heart charms that spell out the word "Love" (on both sides, so it doesn't matter what direction it hangs.)
And to carry out the heart theme I found a cute little heart clasp.

I presented Megan with her new bracelet when she returned home from her first week long church camp on Saturday.
