Wizard of Oz inspired Rainbow Bracelet

I've been wanting to make this bracelet for ages but couldn't find any ruby slippers charms.  I toyed with the idea of using pictures decoupaged into silver frame charms but felt they would be overpower all the other beads and charms.
I've placed the beads in rainbow order (Richard Of York Gained Battles In Vain - had to keep saying that to remember the order - lol!)

I hunted everywhere for some ruby slippers charms but couldn't find any so ended up making my own.  I bought some plain silver coloured slipper charms and added some red glitter resin.  The bracelet is now for sale in my GroovyCart shop.
I had to buy a job lot of the charms and have made them all into ruby slippers - I now have more ruby slipper charms than I'll ever need so have listed the surplus ones in my Karen's Beads shop on MISI

I mixed too much red glitter resin so made these hoops too.  I nearly listed the hoops in Karen's Beads too but then decided to make them up into a funky pair of earrings - you won't be overlooked wearing these earrings.  They've also been listed in my GroovyCart shop
