I can't believe how behind I am on posting things!  This is another gift I made for pinkleo for our private 12 Days of Christmas Swap.  It is based on Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series of novels, which are favorites of both pinkleo and myself.  (And now that I'm thinking about it, I totally want to reread it...) 
It is made with a mix of glass, wood, semi-precious stone beads, and freshwater pearls, all in shades reminiscent of the Fraser hunting tartan. Warm earthy browns, soft heather-greens, deep forests, clear sky blues, creamy pearls, and burnished coppers.



Charms include:
Goblet - for cousin Jared's wine business
Snowflake - A Breath of Snow and Ashes
Letter - Written by Jamie to Brianna in the future
Nurse Cap - for Claire at the beginning of the series
Anchor - for Jamie & Claire's trip in Voyager
Highland Stag
French Coin - for the Frenchman's Gold


Celtic Cross
Ladies Fan - for Claire's time in court in France
Jaime's Sword
Celtic Heart
Dragonfly - for Dragonfly in Amber
Scottish Thistle
Horse - for all the horses Jamie loved & cared for


Tree - family tree from the Drums of Autumn
Kilt - traditional Scottish dress outlawed by the English
Teapot - for Claire's unending love affair with tea
Strawberry from Clan Fraser's Crest
Hourglass - for the time Claire & Jamie have together

Pinkleo, I was going to do the exact same thing! As a proud owner of a Jennie bracelet, I know how precious these are, and what craftmanship they breathe.
I love the Outlander series, and what a brilliant idea, making a bracelet about the books! So pretty! And I love the clasp. It just matches the theme perfectly...
