A Present for my Sweet Friend...

I'm not quite sure if my friend, Rachelle, reads this blog or not...but if so, pretend like it is a surprise when you get it in the mail!  Rachelle and I met each other our freshman year at Utah State back in '92.  My southern accent was so thick that she thought my name was "Jenae" not "Jenny" {like how Forrest Gump says it}.  We had a good laugh when I finally told her months later that my name was "Jenny"...not "Jenae". :)

I thought it would be fun to make her a bracelet/brooch for her birthday {a 2 in 1 present}!  The pictures really do not do it is very elegant in person.  It was one of those presents that I was tempted to keep it myself  {that is when you know it is a really good present to give, right? :)}
I started out with a bracelet that I found at Walmart...
This is how the brooch attaches to the bracelet {I'm sure that you already figured that out!}
I just had to try it on...
Happy Birthday Rachelle!
