Something Old, Something New....

Do you remember the quick little bracelet that I showed about a month ago? If you didn't see it, go back to Aug. 11th and there it is.
My Niece is getting married in October and she is using the lavender or purple as her accessory colors. She wants to carry something that belonged to her "Granny". My Sister who is my Niece's Mother asked me if maybe I had one of Mother's handkerchief's. Together, talking long distance, we came up with the perfect handkerchief and the little pearls that came from a broken necklace of Mother's. (Mother sadly passed away over 20 years ago.)
I found some little lavender colored crystal beads at Michael's that were a perfect match with the lavender colored pearls. So, I made another bracelet for my Niece, and I'm giving the first bracelet I made to my Sister.
Here is the set for my Niece.
