christmas charm bracelets


Yesterday was our swell Christmas Charm Party... twelve ladies crafting! Everyone went home with an amazing charm bracelet for the season. But the best part, hands down, was finally getting to meet all of the wonderful people Sassy and I have connected with over the blogs in our area.

Check out these bracelets. My camera isn't doing them justice today. Visit Jerri-Lea's blog to see the Christmas pickle charm she made... it was genius! I'm thinking that the new game at our house won't be who can find the pickle on the tree... it will be who can find the pickle on Mom's charm bracelet!


Of course now we are all addicted to making charm bracelets and everyone is working on special gifts. I have a few very special gifts to finish. Yes, I dug into my 1990's theme jewelry box... so I guess that makes some of these charms (former earrings) vintage!


Can you spy with your little eye: the Christmas record albums, Sassy's cupcakes, a special doughnut she made for me, my Frostie Root Beer bottle cap charm, How the Grinch Stole Christmas .... and a sparkly snowball?

Sweet!

I've been hearing great things from your charming party.

I so wish I could have made it.

What a perfect bit of Christmas cheer to have wrapped around your wrists.

Hi Ya Saucy! Love the new family pics, your blog makes me laugh everyday! I'll tell McDreamy about the brain/cousin study.....I love it! I'm off to search McNally for a Christmas Pickle book - is there such a thing? The toggle pics look great, I'll try to get mine up if the Sprout ever sleeps - turns out I he needs much less than I lately!

I love the new family pictures, very festive! The Nat King Cole album makes that the coolest bit of jewelry I've seen in a while hands down.

Sugar Bear said...

Those bracelets are a-dor-a-ble...too cute! Glad that you ladies had such a great time...what a fun way to spread some Holiday cheer! ;)

I spent the Thanksgiving weekend completely decorating the house, including adding my new (to me) Christmas china to my cabinet...I found the set (in perfect condition) at an antique store for next to nothing, which makes me very happy!

And, the weather turned cooler here, which makes me smile!

Happy Holidays!

Would you please share how you made the old record album charms with me? I love them. Thanks!

Christine said...

What fun! Where id you find the miniature Nat King Cole album? Where did you find all those other cute charms? Adorable!

Starshine said...

I LURRRVE those!

MaryCatherine said...

Tag, you're it! you must list 6 things about yourself and then tag 6 other people! :)

Lovely bracelettes by the way...

Natalie said...

I love these. I wish I could've been there because I want one!

I love these and want to make them as gifts for little girls who come to a home economics class that I teach. I went to the craft store and charms are expensive. I read that you used earings and it sounds like you made some of them. What are you making them out of? Where do you find your charms? On average, what does it cost to make one? And where did you find the actual bracelet to hang the charms on? I can't find the bracelets for under $8.00. Thanks

Yin said...

Those are so much fun! My wrists are jealous of your wrists!

A glance at my world said...

They are adorable! I have a charm bracelet I'm working on, but I'm afraid to wear it. The one time I did a charm feel off. Since it's got a lot of charms that mean a lot to me, I don't want to lose any. So how do you make sure your charms stay on?? Do you close the jump rings by having the two ends meet or by having them overlap a little??

These are absolutely adorable!!

Can you please tell me how to make the little album shrinky dinks? They truly amaze me & I have a bunch of old albums that would be adorable in mini-version!

Hi All,

I am new to this terrific site and I just can't get emough! These bracelets are darling! My friend made one for me and I lovvve it! The Joans Bros. bracelet was the best. The problem is, if I show it to my daughter, she'll want me to make one for her and I am less than crafty. I love this site as I can live craftely (is that a word?)through you!!

Thanks again :)

I found the bottle cap right away and the cupcakes in all but the third picture. I didn't find the Grinch Stole Christmas though. (Which is by far the best Christmas movie along with Home Alone).

Ooh, I was just in WalMart and saw some cute charm bracelets that would be perfect for this. I got a music/piano one to embellish as a gift for my DD's piano teacher. Thanks so much for the tutorials and inspiration!
