Inspiration for my Charms and 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 and is secured with a fine safety chain (see separate listing for Charm Bracelet). Currently the choice of bracelet charms includes: bumblebee, daisy, earwig, ivy leaf, shieldbug, horse chestnut leaf, green sea turtle, tree frog, monstera leaf, ladybird, moon moth, dragonfly, fly (aka dinner), woodlouse (open and closed), moon moth, spider, slug, snail, baby shark and frog on lilypad. 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.
Which creatures are you going to choose for your charm bracelet? Gardener’s favourites? Tropical Creatures? The misunderstood underdogs?
