Happy Mother's Day

I found an old costume charm bracelet with the "mother" charm dangling on it.  
Since it isn't made out of sterling silver, I figured I'd never wear it.  
Luckily, I was inspired by Kirsten at Studs and Pearls to make it more contemporary . 

I took some leftover embroidery floss and braided it along the edge of the chain.  
Kirsten's great tip was to use bobby pins to thread the floss through the chain.  
Getting the braids even was a lot harder than she made it look!
I'm looking forward to wearing it to brunch today.
