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 basic bracelet is made from a robust cable chain, with a miniature cheese plant leaf attached holding the hallmark. A further 5 charms can be chosen within the basic price – but more can be added individually. Currently the choice of charms includes: bumblebee, daisy, earwig, ivy leaf, shieldbug, horse chestnut leaf, green sea turtle, tree frog, ladybird, moon moth, dragonfly and fly (aka dinner). But the list is growing all of the time. Which would you choose? Gardener’s favourites? Tropical Creatures?…
