Inspiration for my Charm Bracelet
I have coveted charm bracelets since childhood. But it was many years later, in my late 40’s that I finally got my own charm bracelet, inherited from my late mother-in-law. I love running them through my hands, examining the details of each individual charm – knowing that they all have their own individual meaning. So when Claudine from Concept (one of my first galleries) suggested a charm bracelet, I leapt at the chance. Although it is an old-fashioned idea, I greatly enjoy seeing how many others share my passion for these unique items of jewellery.
The bracelet itself is made from a robust cable chain, with a little bumblebee attached holding the hallmark. It is secured with a fine safety chain. Further charms can be attached as preferred. Currently the choice of charms includes: bumblebee, daisy, earwig, ivy leaf, shieldbug, horse chestnut leaf, green sea turtle, tree frog, ladybird, moon moth, dragonfly, fly (aka dinner), woodlouse, moon moth, spider, slug, snail and baby shark. But the list is growing all of the time. They can be purchased together or collected over a period of time, in the old tradition of charm bracelets.
You can request a different charm on this starter charm bracelet if you prefer – just leave a comment when you order saying which charm you would like. Your order may take 2 weeks longer to process as the chosen charm will need to be hallmarked.
Which creatures would you choose for your charm bracelet? Gardener’s favourites? Tropical Creatures?…
