I've been on a charm bracelet making kick again.  This one I had been meaning to make for a while, but hadn't gotten around to until recently.  I wanted it to evoke a quiet walk in the woods on a sunny afternoon.  The leaves are a beautiful frosted glass in shades of brown and green.  The beads are a mixture of cut glass , Czech glass, and seed beads in emerald, chocolate, and smoky topaz.



Charms include:
4 tiny acorns
maple leaf
fox
pine cone



stag
mushroom
owl
tree



squirrel
strawberry
doe
large acorn
bunny
pear leaf



And the whole thing is finished with a flower and leaf toggle clasp.



Enjoy!

That is so beautiful!  I love the colors and the charms you choose for this, it really does give me the feel of a summery quiet Sunday afternoon.  It all works together so well!

I love it! Can I ask where you got your charms from? I might have to make one for a Duck's Unlimited silent auction. It's beautiful.

Thanks ladies! 

kriSmith, I get my charms from LOTS of different sources.  I didn't buy them as a group or anything.  Though I think some sellers over on Etsy do sell themed groups of charms. 

I usually buy in bulk from various Ebay sellers in China, a few from Etsy shops, and some from local craft stores.  I also get some items at beadsandcharms.com.
