Color Inspiration - Sparkle Bracelet
by Kristal Wick
Dog lover? You bet! I am one of those rescue dog moms! I never thought I'd turn into a "dog lady" who dresses up her pups and takes TONS of pictures of them, but alas, I have. They are my best friends and over the past year in isolation due to Covid-19 we've had some of the most stimulating conversations EVER! LOL. I have 3 rescue chihuahuas who have enhanced my life beyond my expectations. All 3 rescues are food motivated which makes training them easy and Sparkle was my first.
Sparkle is the rock-star-picture-taking-professional. All I have to do is bring out the camera and a bag of treats. She knows the drill and will strike a pose better than Madonna! I got Sparkle from the Humane Society 10 years ago. She was hit by a car, the driver sped off and a kind witness immediately got her to a vet for help. She ended up with cherry eye which required surgery-no broken bones or any other injuries (must have a great guardian angel)! I was wandering through the shelter with a broken heart reeling from a divorce and looking for a new best friend. All my dogs in the past were retrievers or labs, many times the size of this little chihuahua. I wasn't finding anything near my desires and kept walking past this poor little creature with an enormous cone on shivering in the corner. She melted my heart, but was so far from what I thought I wanted, it took me awhile to request a visit.
Of course, we fell in love instantly and when I took off her cone she turned into a totally different dog, happy, joyful and so much fun! She went home with me and we've been besties since then! Turns out she's part whippet and chi so she's basically a little 10 lb. race car! She was one of the best blessings I've ever had and my life is so much better with her in it. So, I love taking pics of her in many different settings. My fave being nature and when I saw this field of purple flowers, I had to click!

So, that's why this bracelet is called Sparkle and was easily made using a wire jig, wire and crystals. It's fun to create different types of wire connectors and attach them together with crystal links. You can also hand shape wire connectors using simple tools instead of a jig. Give it a try and don't forget to Sparkle!

Creatively,
Kristal

P.S. Thinking about a new BFF yourself? I strongly recommend rescuing, they will fill your life with so much joy and love, you'll wonder why you waited so long to feel so good and save a life!
