Sun Tile Bracelet

I love springtime when the warm sunshine overpowers the cool and crisp winter days. When I found this quote by Helen Keller I wanted to incorporate it into a jewelry piece. When going through my stash of creative supplies I found the sunny yellow mosaic tiles and it all came together in this mixed media bracelet.

Paint bangle with blue paint and let dry. I wanted some of the wood to show through, so I only applied one coat of the paint.

Type quote in desired font. Paste sun images to document with quote and resize to approximately 3/4”.
