This bracelet has been in the works for ages.  It was inspired by the lovely pinkleo, who gave me the option in a list of possible bracelet ideas during one of our many previous IYP/12 Days of Christmas/Personal/Holiday Swaps.  I've been trying to find time to work on it since then, but always seemed to have such a rough time finding a charm of Shakespeare himself that was under $20. Tongue

I finally found a suitable charm for the Bard, and everything else just seemed to fall into place after that. 



The charms include...
Cauldron - Macbeth: Double, double toil and trouble; Fire burn, and cauldron bubble."
Entwined Hearts - Romeo & Juliet: "For never was a story of more woe
Than this of Juliet and her Romeo."
Skull - Hamlet: Alas, poor Yorick! I knew him, Horatio: a fellow of infinite jest
Ink & Quill
Comedy Mask
Bear - The Winter's Tale: Exit, pursued by a bear.
Fairy - A Midsummer Night's Dream: "The iron tongue of midnight hath told twelve; Lovers, to bed; 'tis almost fairy time."



Horse - Richard III: A horse! a horse! my kingdom for a horse!
Bust of Shakespeare
Pie - Titus Andronicus



Cloud & Lightning Bolt - The Tempest: "On a ship at sea: a tempestuous noise of thunder and lightning heard"
Snake - Antony & Cleopatra: "Give me my robe. Put on my crown. I have Immortal longings in me."
Tragedy Mask
Dagger - Julius Caesar: "Et tu, Brute!"
Stein - Henry IV, Part 1: "The better part of valour is discretion" - Falstaff
Crown - King Lear: "Thou hadst little wit in thy bald crown when thou gavest thy golden one away."
Music Note - Twelfth Night: If music be the food of love, play on; give me excess of it.



The beads are a mix of freshwater pearls, river shell, Czech glass, and ceramic beads in shades of black ink, worn parchment and dramatic blood red.
