BRACELETS :D

This has not been a particularly great week. I spent Wednesday getting gradually more ill throughout the day, ending up with a fever, aching all over my body and a headache... and the same on Thursday. It hurt just to move! But then had a great sleep thanks to some wonderful drowsy flu medicine and woke up Friday feeling fabulous! And then today I woke up with the worst headache I've ever had in my life, which hurrrrt so much whenever I moved at all... :'(
Fortunately, I seem better for the moment so lets hope it stays like that :) Anyway!

I LOVE bracelets. There's something about how you can just easily slip on a few to make an outfit a bit more exciting, and you've also got something to fiddle with if you're bored :P So over the years I've accumulated a fair few!



I've picked out a few to show you today, which are quite new to my collection.






These three were given to me from my brother, and I absolutely love them! He went to Costa Rica for a month, and brought these back from some of the local craftsmen. I love the homemade natural feel of them all!









I'm not entirely sure what this is made of, but you can just about see that is says 'Costa Rica' and has a lizard on it. I like wearing this so I can pretend I've been there, and lived out of a rucksack for a month :P I'm so glad my brother did that instead of me, there's no way I could pack a month's worth of my life into one rucksack xD




This one is quite clearly made of seeds from Costa Rican plants. I love how the seeds have such a bright orange colour on them, that really makes them contrast nicely. Out of all of them, I probably wear this one the most :P





I think this one is made of a seed which is painted, but I love how it's got a pattern a bit like a sun on it :)







This is often how I like wearing my bracelets - mixed up with a little bit of everything else. That way, each bracelet I have on is different and has a different story :) How do you like wearing yours?
