This is another bracelet for which I’ve had charms stashed in a bag for a long time. I’ve just kept the flat sterling silver and enamel Christmas charms from bracelets that I’ve bought to strip apart and sell. One reason I love my job 🙂 . There is a Christmas charm on every other link […]
On Mother’s Day this year my oldest son and his girlfriend gave me an addition to my Pandora charm bracelet. It’s a sterling silver dangly that reads “Loving Mother”. I decided to make a video to show you. My first video on Youtube. I bought an iPhone and wanted to give it a try. […]
Let me share my newest Thomas L Mott charm I’ve added to my collection. It’s one I’ve never seen before and I happened upon it by accident.
Just a quick note to show you the wooden Nuvo charms I bought on eBay. They have the older mark. The new mark has the word Nuvo written out. They are in great condition and I didn’t pay very much for them so I’m not sure if I got a really good deal of they […]
I just found these 2 Longaberger Basket charms in the way back recesses of my safe and thought I’d see if anyone else has any. They are both stamped 14K and Longaberger. The small one is flat on the back and has some dimensional detail on the front. The larger one is completely figural. It […]
First the non-charm stuff – Today is my first day of being completely self-employed. I’ve decided to ditch the corporate job and make a go of it on my own. It feels great. Scary but great. My stress level is down 500 percent. That may not be the case in a few months if I’m […]
I’ve always been a traditional charm bracelet type of girl. I like the old fashioned charms that attach with jump rings. I’ve collected that style of bracelet for quite a few years and have lots of different vintage charm bracelets. This year I decided to try something different. My kids always ask me what I […]
This week I was elated to be able to buy a Thomas L Mott charm bracelet form the estate of Joan Munkacsi. Joan was a mentor to many charm collectors and Thomas L Mott are my favorite charms so I think I was meant to own this piece. It’s the centerpiece of my TLM collection now. See more of Joan’s extensive collection as it’s offered on eBay.
My almost finished hat theme charm bracelet has an alpine hat, summer flower hat, military hat, English police hat, pirate hat, straw hat, and a cowboy hat. I’ve got a few more to buy but it looks pretty fine so far. Check it out……
I wanted to share with you some photos of two puffy heart charms that have my name engraved on the back. One is a US Navy Anchor repousse, and the other is an enamel finish with stars in the design. I have no idea who the “Wandas” were who first owned these, but it seems fitting that since I’m a Wanda, I should have them now.
Connemara marble is a luxury marble known as “Irish Green” because it’s mined exclusively in the wild rugged Connemara Mountains of western Ireland. It’s a rare highly variegated and veined marble found in over 40 shades, from pale yellow, to various shades of green, and gray. I’m wearing these lucky charms this St. Patrick’s Day
I have to share with you this vintage Trifari photo locket pin. It’s different from the normal photo lockets you typically find. This one is square and hangs from the pin with a rectangular link chain. The case opens up and has the teeniest old fashioned photos of a family inside.
Did you ever wonder how a heart came to symbolize love and Valentine’s day? There are a few theories, not all of them romantic. Here are a few legends and lore behind the heart symbol.
It’s hard to believe Christmas is less than 2 months away. Time flies when you’re having fun! It’s time to break out the Christmas charm bracelets. I’ll start wearing my favorite shabby chic vintage Christmas charm bracelet with figural charms soon after Thanksgiving. And I’ve made a new enamel Christmas bracelet from flat charms this year.
