new years resolution... french charm bracelets

One of my New years Resolutions this year...(among many) is to get things listed on Etsy.
I am going to start with some of my past finds from the wonderful French Flea markets that I have visited over the years.

I am going to be making charm bracelets from these...old french key chains.....
 I will be transforming into these....
Fabulously French, one of a kind, fun charm bracelets made from the cute bottoms of the french key chains!
There was a booth in Clignancourt that had walls of these old key chains.  I looked at them and thought "what could I make out of those?"  I had walked by and came back trying to think of what I could make.
There were some really cute ones, some weird ones, but they were all French.  
Surely I could figure something out.  So I bought bags of these.  Bags and bags.  Wasn't the smartest thing to do, as I then had to carry these heavy bags around the market.  I thought my arm was going to break off!
I think they are really fun, and fabulously French!
I will be sharing some of the other goodies I will be putting on Etsy later this weekend.
