So charm bracelets with a new charm for so much weight lost is a really big thing now, and I love the concept. The problem was, most charm bracelets are pretty mainstream with pink hearts and ice cream cones and puppies or initials, all nice but not my style. I was in Michael's today looking with my mom and sister for baby shower stuff (for my sister) when I came across a display of assorted jewelry making supplies, including ornate metal chains and charms. For about $24 I got a black chain that's actually made up of 8 wreath designs that are cherubs holding grapes (something I love because I'm a Classics major with a concentration in Ancient Greek and a Creative Writing major, and one of my favorite works is Paradise Lost) and I also found 2 6 packs and 1 5 pack of Victorian charms, like a silver teapot, a black key, and a crystal ball. I used my mother's old hemostats (surgical clamps for arteries mostly) instead of pliers to attach a clasp on the end and shorten it up a bit (I have 2 extra cherub wreaths that I think I'll make into matching earrings).
I just wanted to share in case anyone ever wanted to do this but was turned off by conventional charm bracelets like me, and it was a lot less expensive than going to Claire's and finding something that I could've lived with instead of loved!
It's actually black eyeshadow I applied wet and then covered with clear chapstick since my black lipstick has disappeared to the ages. It's good for a short time but obviously difficult to reapply unless you carry a pot of eyeshadow and a brush around
