story bracelets

juliewhitmorepottery.etsy.com
 
You know the story; a wolf has hatched a devious plot. 
 And there's a witch who has a cookie house, far far into the woods.  The woodland animals see it all.

so I made a few story bracelets about their adventures
There's even a wolf in one,~
(New organic spoons)
animal face cups
and tried and true ones.
Red likes the hedgehog cup at Grandma's house. She's hurrying to get there,
Wish her luck!

Julie
ps.   Here's the wolf; and forgot to tell you I'm listing over the weekend

What a lovely idea, I do like your story bracelets.Betty

sandra said...

OH MY GOSH!!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE them all. Your beads and buttons are precious!

Julie Whitmore Pottery said...

Joyce, you made me think about a pumpkin spoon with a green stem handle??
Thank you Betty
and Sandra thanks so much; the beads are flat this time, so they don't roll around on the bracelet.
Only took a year to figure that out.))

Oh, your blog is always so fun to read! Love your latest creations, especially those wonderful spoons. The bracelets are very charming. Happy (almost) September!

Julie your work never ceases to delight and fascinate me.
That strawberry spoon is absolutely delightful. It has me dreaming of Summer and home grown berries and freshly made jam and I don't particularly like Summer and it's heat!! I'm sure if you painted Brussel Sprouts on something I would fall in love with them and start eating them too!!
The bracelets, the cups, spoons all gorgeous.........
I'm loving having your Butterfly Girl pic hanging on my wall . I think I will give her a name any suggestions?

The bracelets are amazing! They remind me of a Victorian slide bracelet, just so pretty.

The spoons are real show stoppers - I want one!!! Which one though . . .

I'm agree with Red Riding Hood, the hedgehog cup is adorable.

Librarian said...

Everything on here makes me think that I want them for presents for my Mum! Trouble is, she already has so much STUFF... her place is full of THINGS... where would she put even more things?
But the bracelets are VERY tempting, and I know she'd wear them and love them, too.

Pixie said...
