Added 4 new items to the bottom of this post.

Ahem, sorry for the cheesy subject line. I have no self control!

This is my first jewellery post, yeehaw! Anyway, I have developed a recent obsession with making charm bracelets. Don't ask me why...

These are 5 bracelets that I've made in the past month or so. They're mostly made from random left over beads and buttons I've had hanging around for years and never used. All of the chains are made using joined jump rings.



(Silver rose beads and amethyst chips.)




(Glass beads and plastic buttons.)




("Brass-look" nautical charms - I love them! - and wood & glass beads.)




(Mother of pearl and plastic buttons, and pink mussel shell.)




(My fave - all plastic buttons.)

Thanks for lookin Cheesy


Update 2nd Sept -- I've made two new button bracelets



My mom says "meh" about this one - what do you reckon? I love the red and black thing, I'll never get sick of it.





I really like creating purple stuff, but I never wear the colour... odd?





I love this one! It's my celebration of spring Cheesy



Added on the 15th of September:





I had a lot of trouble photographing this one nicely, and it still looks a bit... funny. Anyway, it's super pretty in person (take my word for it! :p). It's made with glass bugle beads and plastic buttons. A very spring-ish colour combo, IMHO. And it jingles! What more could you ask for?





This one makes me think of halloween! I really miss halloween, being an American living in Australia. People just don't "get it" here. Oh woe is me... :p





This is a combo necklace/bracelet. I'm really in love with this brown/turquoise colour combo at the moment.





This is made with the last of a lot of pretty indian glass beads that I bought a few days ago (the orange & black one is made from the same type of beads). I love this colour combination, it's very soothing to me.


Thanks for looking!

Hehehe yeah it's always tough when Mom's in charge of the credit card. I have a similar problem, in that credit cards scare me, so I've never gotten one.

But it makes me happy that you'd buy it if you could. Cheesy

Those are really nice! I really like the themes of your charm bracelets . I especially love the nautical one and the mother of pearl one. Smiley I'd so love to buy one if I could and I'm not even a charm bracelet buying person usually! Keep up the great work!

I love all of these.  They are just my style.  I love the colour combinations and I just adore that little whale charm.  I can see why the last one is your favourite.  I think that one is my favourite too.
What size jump rings do you use?  I usually use either 4mm or 5mm jumprings to make chains for my bracelets but yours look bigger.  I'm thinking I should try bigger because I love how yours look.

Good luck selling these, they're fabulous   Smiley

Thanks guys! I'm glad you think they're purchase-worthy. I guess I'll just need to hold tight until I sell 'em Cheesy

purplefluffycow -- they are 8mm jump rings, very nice size to work with Smiley
