Fini Friday! Beginnings and Adventures!

Hello Everyone!
Welcome to Fini Friday!!
I've had a busy and productive latter part of this week and I hope the same can be said for you-all!
I did take some time for a WalkAbout today and I have a few nifties I picked up on my adventures to show you!

I found two sheets of scrapbooking paper that I just adore and that you will likely see as backdrops in future photos of creations! The beautiful midnight blue paper in the background is full of stars and moons and so forth! Just like the night sky! The nearer paper is has a small batch of faux old medicinal labels on it. I love all the textures and colours in this one! I'm even pondering what I might do with this should it prove to be too "busy" of a backdrop for my jewelry creations! YAY OPTIONS!
The little bits of metal you see in the middle are scrapbooking brads. They are very similar to rivets that are used to secure metal, leather and etc. I've a few ideas for those and have wanted to play with them for some time, so now I have them and that adventure can begin! Stay tuned to see what I do with them!

In excellent Fini Friday fashion, I finished the bracelet I had laid out for my friend's breast cancer fundraiser I mentioned a few Whimsy Wednesdays ago! I'm pleased with how it grew into completion and am happy to share it with you-all now!
Title: Adventures in Healing and Growth
Ingredients: Hand-made (by me!) pink ribbon, Swarovski crystal heart (rose), rose quartz, amethyst, Czech glass, sterling silver, lead-free pewter, upcycled metal chain.

Rose quartz is thought to be a healing stone and legend has it that amethyst helps with healing, spiritual guidance and celestial connection. the rose in the round bead on the right and leaf on the left symbolize the cycles of life and growth! The rose is a mature flower and the leaf is a sign of growth and collector of life force (sunlight!). I actually cut and hand-stitched the pink ribbon in the center! Isn't it wonderful!?! And, this creation is eco-friendly as the chain is recycled from a vintage necklace! So much nifty! This and two pairs of earrings are all ready to be delivered tomorrow! I'm excited to think that these creations may be of some help to those who are in the middle of a rough patch of their life adventure!
And with that, I wish you a lovely, warm and wonderful weekend!
See you on Monday!
