After my post yesterday and all of the encouraging replies it got I was inspired to stop being so lazy, go crazy and throw myself into more bracelet making. This is the result Grin.

38 charms on an 8 inch silver plated toggle fastening bracelet, no two charms are the same. I love making these and it only takes about half an hour now...I remember it used to take me about 3 hours to make a bracelet when I first started, lord knows what I was doing Undecided.

A lot of the charms are salvaged from the 70's, but some are newer. As you can see from the photos there is a pretty large variety, oh, and they are all plastic, but I imagine everyone can see that..

So fun!  I have a small box of charms that I think are from the 40s and 50s that my grandmother gave me years ago and now maybe I know what I can do with them!  Maybe even one of those charm necklaces!
