FORR Wings

This is the first bracelet I received in the Found Object Round Robin.  You can probably guess the theme is wings.  It belongs to MR.

This is the charm I added.  I found the tiny washer on the garage floor.  I hammered HOPE into it and hung it with a blue bi-cone crystal.  I also added a wing charm I had in my stash.  it reminded me of the first stanza of an Emily Dickinson poem:

Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul
And sings the tune without the words
And never stops at all

This charm was added right before mine by DT.  D painted a Scrabble tile so it looks like the sky.  W for wing.  Then, she added the dragonfly charm to it.

This is the original charm added by MR when she started the bracelet and gave it the theme of wings.  She told us that this butterfly charm is all she has left of a necklace she was given as a teenager.  MM are her initials.  She added a small opal chip.

Three charms, but so cool already!
