The other day while talking to a friend I suddenly realized that though I have made tons of loaded charm bracelets, with many varied themes, I've somehow NEVER made a Firefly bracelet.  That's when I started plotting this one.


I wanted a less fancy feel than some of my other bracelets, so I stuck with all glass beads, no pearls or crystals.  Amber, brown, opaque red-brown and black beads fill it.  There are 17 charms, each a nod to a character or episode.  They include:
Cow, who sadly may have forgotten how to be a cow
Chinese coins (x4)
Dancer for the ever graceful and sometimes deadly, River Tam
Space suit
Caduceus for the good doc, Simon Tam
Strawberry for sweet Kaylee


Vera, the man they call Jayne's very favorite gun
Shepherd Book's bible
Guitar, for the often nomadic feel of the show's score
Horse for the ranch where Mal grew up
Inara's fan


Zoe's pistol
Apple, for the many war stories the crew shares
Dinosaur for Wash
Star, one of many out in the black


All in all I'm pretty darn happy with how it turned out.  Hope some of you fine folks enjoy it too.

I love all your theme charm bracelets!  Where do you find all your charms? 

From all over the place, no single source.  Search Google, Etsy, Ebay, beadsandcharms.com, beadsarefun.com, etc.  You have to really dig to find just the right ones.

Wow, this is awesome.  Maybe someday when I'm not so poor I'll be able to afford one of your bracelets.
