Bonjour Antique Typewriter Key Bracelet
"Bonjour" Antique Typewriter Key Bracelet

This bracelet features antique typewriter keys that spell out the phrase "Bon Voyage". All of these keys came from various typewriters so some creative license is taken in the spelling as only one of each letter is available. Included among the keys is a pretty cabachon with an Eiffel tower collage. As always, I've added some charms to fit the theme - an Eiffel tower, a handmade polymer clay rose, and a beaded "perfume bottle".
