Charm bracelets for college football Saturday

   It’s time for another college football Saturday. I actually pull for several teams, but given where I live and other personal factors my “blood runneth orange.” 
   The Boston College Eagles will play the Clemson University Tigers in Death Valley at 3:30 p.m. today. In preparation for game day I made some jewelry in each team’s colors.

   I had fun making these. I’ve had the orange and purple buttons for a while and figured it was about time I used them. I was inspired by something I found on Pinterest, originally posted on Dishfunctional Designs.
   I think the gold charm bracelet turned out very well. I dug through my container of glass beads to find maroon beads. I also added gold beads to fill in empty spaces.
   Thank you for taking this time with me. Have a great weekend!

WOW...I love buttons and I love making jewelry and I can't believe I haven't thought of this yet!! Thank you for the inspiration. (I like the bead one too)Of course for my two bracelets I would have to use crimson/white or blue/orange for where I live.

Very pretty! Perfect for a football enthusiast. I think these would be great for the NFL teams too! :-)

Thank you both for checking out my blog and the compliments. Regina, I'm thinking I know where you are given the colors you Crystal, you are right, would work for NFL as well.
