I joined the One Tiny Harry Potter Thing Rd2 and really had no idea what I would make for my partner. Luckily she and I are were both huge Weasley family fans, and I knew then that I need to pay homage to Molly Weasely.  Smiley

Color theme is very obviously Gryffindor colors, using glass rounds, handmade & swarovski's. I also created a somewhat elaborate story about how the bracelet came about, how it got to my partner, and why Molly no longer needed it. I even typed it all out on some paper tea dyed it and burned the edges a bit to correlate with the story. All in all, I had so much fun with this and what better excuse to watch a marathon of HP movies 3 times over again?


Here is a left and right side of the bracelet before most of the charms were put on so you can see the picture frame charms of Molly's family.

Here is the bracelet and truer color of the beads on the bracelet. I used a variety of beads, also including some fresh water pearls, some burgundy porcelain rounds and the hand blown golden colored beads of varying shapes. I used burgundy and canary colored swarovskis in 6mm.

Charms (including pictures) from top clockwise: "W" & "Family", owl, "handmade" hand, "worlds greatest mom", Molly Weasley, dragon, Charlie, Fred & George, the Burrow, sorting hat, broom, Ginny, scarf, a dog patronus, Ron, Harry Potter (family/friend), lightning, Bill, potion bottle, Goblet of Fire (her favorite movie), Percy, lion for Gryffindor, cauldron, & Arthur Weasley. Wink

Here is a better picture of the charms. Sorry you can't see some of them, the bracelet started to get really loaded after the initial 8 picture charms. All the pictures were sealed and them covered in powdered clear resin to give them the glass look.

Here is a picture I borrowed from the gallery from my partner. You can see how loaded it is and the letter it came with from Head Mistress Minerva McGonagall.

Thanks for looking. I look forward to making one for my self in the near future. Wink C&C always welcome. Happy crafting everyone!

I've never seen or read any of the Harry Potter stuff, so I don't "get it" so to speak.  however this is one of the coolest loaded bracelets I have seen.  Good job!

Penny: Oh, wow! A girl scientist!
Leslie Winkle: Yup. Come for the breasts. Stay for the brains.

I love this, so cute! Grin

Love; it will not betray you, dismay, or enslave you. It will set you free, to be more like the man you were made to be. There is a design, an alignment, a cry of my heart to see the beauty of love as it was made to be.

Thanks for all the lovely comments. It was a blast to make, and I would have really loved the color combo even if it wasn't Harry Potter related.

Can't wait to make more bracelets! <3  Cheesy
