A while back I created a Potions Master Charm Bracelet for SevsOnlyGirl in the Loaded Charm Bracelet Swap.  I was really happy with how it came out, not to mention psyched to be so inspired by my awesome partner, Sevs. 

But in the year since making that one, I've refined my technique quite a bit, and started using a different style of chain as my base, which I think wears much nicer and is more comfortable.  I decided I wanted to go back to that bracelet and try it again, with a "what I know now" kind of approach.  Here's the result:


Charms include:
~Evil eye, used to protect oneself from malicious spells
~Snake, symbol of Slytherin House
~Lightening bolt, for the Boy Who Lived
~Silver star
~Phial of lavender, to promote love, protection, courage & strength
~Acromantula
~Inkwell & quill, for grading all those rolls of parchment
~Locket to stash a picture of your true love
~Silver Doe, Snape's Patronus Charm
~Phial of rue, symbol of sorrow & repentance; renowned as an antidote to poisons; carried to guard the bearer from poisons, werewolves and all manner of dangers
~Owl, to bear your messages
~Beazor, a stone taken from the belly of a goat which will guard against most poisons
~Spell books & an apple for studying
~Dragon
~Phial of sage, for longevity & increasing wisdom
~Wand, from Ollivander's
~Crescent moon
~Wire wrapped skull, like the Death Eater's masks
~Goblet in which to serve your most potent potions







I hope you all enjoy!

Awww, thanks ladies!  I'm not actually all that crazy about Snape myself, but I know how many others are.  Smiley  I'm hoping to do one for each of the other Houses soon too.

Great work, Jennie!  While I adore my bracelet, this one looks like it might not be quite as chunky and lay flatter on the wrist.  Nice job on refining! Smiley

Yeah, my later generation bracelets do lay a lot flatter.  Ex_Gratia turned me onto a different size & shape of chain, and it really makes all the difference.

it does look different from the other one but I think I like them both equally for different reasons. However I do like that this one lays flat. great job!
