Here's a mother's bracelet I made with Ellie's name. It's a fairly classic design for mother's bracelets. I think it looks very nice and elegant, but when I originally bought the materials the letter beads were silver plated. Over time, the silver color has worn off and now the beads are white. It still looks nice, but it's not as elegant as it was. Next time I'll splurge and try to find letter beads that are made of a silver material. I made this a long time ago and it's lasted through a lot of wearing so I'm pretty happy with its construction.

I like the clasp the best though it was, of course, the most expensive item in the bracelet. It's an elephant and you move its trunk to unclasp the bracelet. Here's a closeup!
