Summer of colour - Holly bracelet

"I believe in pink. 
I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. 
I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. 
I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. 
I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. 
I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles."
- Audrey Hepburn -

I have always liked Audrey Hepburn.
She was a glamorous lady, who was pretty all the time, was on the movies on the Vogue front page, but she learnt that even though that was her life there was more to life than just that.
She had a great heart and she worked helping others, specially children to reach their potential and to get out of poverty.

When Kristin from Twinkle Twinkle told us to use pink as the main colour for this week's project I immediately thought of such a famous quote. Then I thought of breakfast at Tiffany's. Then of diamonds.
As I don't work with diamonds for obvious reasons, so instead I have used Swarovski crystals (as if you could use something "instead" of diamonds).
I have called it "Holly" because that's the name of Audrey Hepburn on Breakfast at Tiffany's.

This is a fine and beautiful bracelet in sterling silver with Swarovski crystals in two different shades of pink, with a round quartz focal bead. The clasp is handmade by SunsetGems and it is also sterling silver that has been slightly oxidized to bring out the marks and drawings made on it. A small and beautiful piece of art.

"I heard a definition once: Happiness is health and a short memory! I wish I had invented it, 
because it is very true."
- Audrey Hepburn -

"Yo creo en rosa.
Creo que reir es la mejor manera de quemar calorías.
Creo en besar, besar mucho.
Creo en ser furte cuando todo parece ir mal.
Creo que las chicas felices son las más hermosas.
Creo que mañana será otro día y creo en los milagros.
- Audrey Hepburn -

Siempre me ha gustado Audrey Hepburn.
Era una mujer glamurosa, quien siempre estaba hermosa, aparecía en las películas y en la portada de Vogue, pero aprendió que aunque ésa era su vida en la vida había más que éso.
Tenía un gran corazón y trabajó ayudando a otros, especialmente a los niños para que pudieran alcanzar todo su potencial y salir de la pobreza.

Cuando Kristin de Twinkle Twinkle nos comunicó que el color de ésta semana era el rosa inmediatamente pensé en esta cita tan famosa. Luego pensé en Desayuno con diamantes. Luego en diamantes.
Como no trabajo con diamantes por razones obvias, he utilizado en su lugar cristales Swarovski (como si se pudiese utilizar algo "en lugar de" diamantes).
He llamado a esta pulsera Hollyporque este era el nombre de Audrey Hepburn en "Desayuno con diamantes".

Esta bonita y fina pulsera es de plata de ley con cristales Swarovski en dos gamas de rosa, con una cuenta principal en cuarzo craquelado. El cierre está hecho a mano por SunsetGems, también de plata que ha sido oxidizado para realzar las marcasy dibujos en ellos. Una pequeña pieza de arte.

"Una vez escuché una definición: La felicidad es salud y ¡una mala memoria! 
Ojalá la hubiese inventado yo, porque es tan cierto."
