What a hideous notion. Keeping everything that you feel defines you dangling off your wrist to show off to the world. That can quickly become hideously gaudy. It violates all of my mysteriously present Victorian sensibilities and inclinations against bragging.
While I abhor the idea of charm bracelets because of their tendency to stray into the 'that's waaaay overboard' territory so easily, I have discovered some charm in themed bracelets. These bracelets operate on similar mechanics and design principles as charm bracelets...however they tend to revolve around a specific theme or aesthetic.
For example, one of my bracelets that has long since left my possession:
|Notice the recurring colors, charms and uniform placement of the elements.|
Unfortunately, Themed Bracelets, still fall in the realm of Charm Bracelets, so, there's that. Well, enough of that. I'll show you more pictures of my Themed Bracelets so far.
I'm a 'Spooky Kid' so there should be no surprise that Jack Skellington is here.
And finally a Captain America inspired charm bracelet I made somewhat recently. Well, that's all for this post. Happy Crafting!
