We’re coming up on the Criminal Minds meet and greet!

Last year kicked off my real bracelet making by making one for Matthew Gray Gubler.   (This then led to giving one to Jackson Rathbone the following weekend, but that’s another story.)   I thought this year I’d make one for each of the women.  Kirsten Vangsness is supposed to be there this time, so I thought perfect, a Garcia-inspired bracelet!

She tends to wear bright, chunky jewelry to go with her funky clothes and hair, so hopefully this will work for her.  And maybe one day even have a spot on the show!  🙂

Gubler will get another bracelet this year, this time Micky Mouse themed (last year was a “Gublerland” bracelet for his website).  I also have a green and purple butterfly bracelet for AJ Cook since her character collects butterflies.  And although Jeanne Tripplehorn isn’t listed on the line-up, I’m bringing one for her just in case.  And of course, I’ll wear my own BAU and Unsub bracelets in the hopes that people in line will take a look and maybe get an order or two.


Did someone ask for a Criminal Minds line?

Oh yeah. I did. I figure as long as I’m doing my own obsessions as bracelet lines, we needed to throw in Criminal Minds. I mean, it basically started the whole bracelet craze! I was casually making bracelets before, but when I went to the cast meet and greet at the Laguna Beach Arts Festival and decided to make one for Matthew Gray Gubler, it really kicked it into high gear. I hope they’re back again this year, because I’d like to make some for the other cast members (although I can’t really see Mantegna wearing a beaded bracelet).

So to kick it off, here’s the catch-all bracelet, the BAU bracelet. Taking into account the Criminal Minds logo, most of the line will be black and red, with the possible exception of Garcia’s, which I think needs to be a lot more funky. There’s also an “Unsub” bracelet, Prentiss’ goodbye bracelet, and a Moreid love bracelet. I am open to suggestions for more, and am working on JJ and Garcia bracelets.
