There is something so nice about charm bracelets and how you can add to them and mix and match charms. I am collecting charms for a dog themed bracelet (I have only four till now) but I like all kinds of animal shaped charms and things from nature. Most of these are silver, but I have some plastic or random metal ones too. Of course, all of them are flea market finds.
I have found this bracelet with the four charms. I think it is a child size, which is fine for me. Probably I will move the poodle to the dog bracelet, when I will manage to gather enough charms for that.
I plan to convert these two tiny little plastic horses to charms.
I really love this woodpecker, found on an already made bracelet with different random charms.
The bear is very special, I think it is antique, it’s quite heavy and so detailed. I sometimes wear it as a pendant.
The double glass and silver eye is also pretty.
This child sized alpaca bracelet is from Mexico. Only the button with the mother of pearl inlay is silver, probably replacing a missing charm. One of the charms is marked 1970. Of course I really disliked the motif on that one, with the roosters fighting, so I scratched a heart between them and now they are friends. 🙂
I keep the charms in an old medicine tin.
