Charm bracelets

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.

  1. A man once gave me an old piano bench because the lid would no longer open. When I got the bench home, I went to work loosening the hinge. There was a silver charm bracelet from the 1960’s tangled in the hinge. There were about 20 charms crowded on the bracelet telling a young girl’s life – cheerleading, tennis, pets, etc. I found a friend who collected charm bracelet and gave it as a gift.
