This charm bracelet was made for the awesome SevsOnlyGirl in the Loaded Charm Bracelet Swap.  To be honest, I begged all parties involved to allow me to make this bracelet because the idea sprung fully formed like Athena from Zeus' head.  I had several of the charms already, and searched out the remaining ones.  I make a lot of loaded charm bracelets, but I wanted this one to be very different.  Much less orderly than my usual ones, full of odds and ends rather than similarly sized charms.  I knew I had to include some potion bottles, but rather than fill them with liquid or resin, I wanted them to contain INGREDIENTS that the Potion Master (or Mistress) might need, and picked out ones that I thought fit in well with the character of Severus Snape, and his doomed love of Lily Evans.  I also wanted to include a locket for SevsOnlyGirl to fill with her own pictures.  Ok, enough talk, onto the bracelet...



Skull Wire wrapped by leopardstripes and received in a Bead Soup swap
Magic Wand from Ollivanders
Glass Bottle Lavender to promote love, protection, healing; the flowers bring courage and strength. (Information taken from Knickertwist's list of Witch's Herbal.)
Moon an advantageous time to gather herbs
Question Mark Because we never seem to know what side Snape is really on.

Witch for Snapes true love
Black Locket Left empty for Sev's to fill.
Silver Doe Snapes Patronus, just like Lilys.
Glass Bottle Unicorn Horn to be used in potions of health and healing a broken heart

Snake  - for Slytherin House
Beazor a stone taken from the belly of a goat for protection from most poisons, handy for a Potion Master to have
Star
Goblet to serve simmering potions in
Glass Bottle - Rue is a symbol of sorrow and repentance; it was once renowned as an antidote to poisons and infectious diseases, it is said to cleanse the head in love matters,  the plant was also carried to guard the bearer from poisons, werewolves and all manner of dangers. (Again, information taken from Knickertwist's list of Witch's Herbal.)

Owl A messanger, and a symbol of wisdom.
Inkwell & Quill to remember that there is always the chance to learn, even from those we dislike
Evil Eye Glass charms have been used as protection from the evil eye for centuries
Lightning Bolt - for Harry Potter
