I've been making charm bracelets for a while now, and just I can't seem to get enough of making them. Especially Harry Potter themed bracelets.  (See: The Potions Master Bracelet, Hermoine's Gryffindor Bracelet, Tonk's Hufflepuff Pride Bracelet, Luna's Ravenclaw Bracelet, etc.)  I have even come up with some unusual variations (Eeylops Owl Emporium Bracelet, HP Memorial Bracelet, Deathly Hallows Bracelet, etc.)  But recently, I had an unusual request for a theme I hadn't thought of before.  A Lord Voldemort/Tom Riddle Bracelet.


To be honest, I'm not so sure why so many of my fellow fans of the series are obsessed with Voldemort and the Death Eaters, but to each his own I suppose.  I do have to admit that it was a fun bracelet to make and I am very pleased with how it turned out.  And that after ages scouring the internet, I was thrilled to find the snake in the skull charms.  They are just so perfect for the Dark Mark! 


The charms include:
Cauldron, which the Dark Lord reemerged from in Goblet of Fire
Tom Riddle's Diary, one of the Horcruxes
Marvolo Gaunt's Ring, a Hallow & a Horcrux
Rat for Wormtail, his cowardly servant and the betrayer of James & Lily Potter
the Dark Mark, cast whenever the Death Eaters kill
the Sorting Hat, which Voldemorte summons during the Battle of Hogwarts


Slytherin's Locket, a Horcrux made from a family heirloom
Nagini, Lord Voldemorte's faithful pet and a Horcrux
Hogwarts Castle, the first place the Dark Lord felt at home


Lightning Bolt for Harry Potter, the unintentional Horcrux
Hufflepuff's Cup, the Horcrux stolen from the Lestrange's vault
Cemetery Gates from Little Haggleton where the Riddle's lived
the Lost Diadem of Ravenclaw, the final Horcrux


The beads are a mix of fire-polished glass, crystal, crackled glass, rivershell, aventurine and agate in shades of emerald green, black, smoky grey and clear.  The whole thing is finished with a serpent toggle clasp.

I hope you all enjoy!

I don't know why so many HP fans are into old Voldy and the Death Eaters either... but as usual - this bracelet is BEAUTIFUL. I always love your bracelets. Smiley

This definately rocks! Oh, bythe way, it's the appeal of the "bad" boy that fans of Voldemort are attracked to. LOL

Thanks for all the kind words ladies!

I do get the appeal of a "bad boy", but why the obsession/love for someone incapable of loving you back?  Bellatrix clearly is in love with him, and he doesn't even care when she dies.  I actually *almost* get the appeal of Snape, though don't understand the level of obsession from some ladies either.  Oh well.  To each her own...
