Charm or Mantra Bracelet using Stamped Dog Tags, Shells and Plastic Charms

Mantra bracelet

This is one of my favourite things I’ve made. I call it a Mantra Bracelet.

Outside one of our supermarkets is a guy who makes dog tags. He stamps a cat or dog’s name and number onto brass or steel shapes. I asked him to stamp my goals on some steel hearts. I used key words rather than the whole description.

Then I added charms that were representative of my goals such as leaves to represent growth and hearts for love.

It’s so nice to have a reminder of what I am aiming for with me and as the charms move they make a sound which reminds me too.

The Greenie Galleries at the top of this page have 100s of photos of older and newer projects showing multiple ways to make your own clothing and accessories. There are also ideas to recycle or upcycle.

See you soon.
