I haven't really posted a bracelet in ages, and this is my favourite Nightmare Before Christmas bracelet I've ever made so I thought I would. I *think* this is also the most charms I've ever put on one bracelet. Anyway, the description...

It's completely packed with 52 charms and beads. These include czech glass beads in a gorgeous teal/green colour, black glass round and cube beads, really cute black metal roses (unfortunately they didn't photograph very well) and tibean silver hearts. Other beads include black and white plastic candy striped ones, black teardrops and discs, and large faceted rounds with an irridescent finish which complements the green beads. Interspersed along the bracelet are five Nightmare Before Christmas character charms. All of the findings are silver plated and the bracelet is made to fit an avergae sized wrist Smiley.

As per usual it looks better in the flesh...

This is gorgeous! I love the bead combinations and the colours. And the sheer number of charms you used is incredible!

I've loved this movie since it came out and this is probably one of my favourite Nightmare pieces I've seen. I'm so wisting this. Cheesy

I like the colors you chose to go with the Nightmare Before Christmas charms. Smiley
I loved that movie very much too. I would watch it over and over again when I was younger, just to sing along.

Wow, I didn't expect such a response! Thanks everyone Smiley The teal beads are such a gorgeous colour I've also made this necklace out of them, it still doesn't really show what a nice colour they are properly, but I like having something simple which doesn't detract from them Smiley.

It's a real shame the roses didn't photograph too well, I think they blend in with the black in the photos. Craftster resizes the photos but if you click here you can see the full sized photo which has slightly better detail.
