It's no secret that I love to make charm bracelets.  Sometimes though, I make one that I am really pleased with.  This is one of those.  It was made for the very lovely pinkleo in the Back to Hogwarts Swap.  It was inspired by the subject of Ancient Runes taught at Hogwarts, but I wanted it to be really subtle and something she could wear with everyday clothing.

The charms include the runes for Happiness, Humanity, Inner Peace, Courage, Victory, Knowledge, Lifeforce, Luck, Strength, and Success.  The beads are all semi-precious stones including moonstone for passion, lapis lazuli for healing, garnet for success, rose quartz for love, cherry quartz, blueberry quartz for stress-relief, and amethyst for protection and wisdom.

And because I always like to make matching earrings whenever I can, I made a pair with cherry quartz and lapis.  Enjoy.  Smiley

I love that you listed the meaning for all the runes and the meaning for all the beads, I think it adds to the "cool factor" lol. It makes it more personal and meaningful. I bet your swap partner will love it!

Gorgeous, as always.  I love the fact that it can be worn everyday, and the colours would go with any outfit.
