I'm not really down for a theme personally, I love my eclectic bracelet BECAUSE it's all different but matched everyone else's. Like a secret decoder ring club thing. Every charm was very representative of the crafter, I love that.
Shipping isn't really that bad, I did 12 twice, it cost barely 20 bucks. We waived the DC's last time I think? CraftyDame? Without the DC's it's about a dollar and 12 cents to send, if that, per charm.
