Charm bracelet

Yes, I am still working on charms, and as I was going thru my bead findings I found a charm bracelet that I had picked up at Michael's a few months ago on a clearance sale. At the time I had no idea what I would do with it, but it was on sale, and I bought it.
This morning I started adding some of the charms I have created to the bracelets links. I will add a lot more charms after the swap from AAWA.  Last night, I found the last dog license that we had from our beloved golden retriever, Bear before he passed,  and so I made that into a charm. I have some bottle caps that I am working on and dominos. charm bracelet2
Below...enlarged photo of a small rubber stamped domino and a flattened bottle cap that I drilled a small hole at the top so it could be used as a charm. Now, I just need to put a protective coating on them.

The bracelet looks pretty good when on my wrist. I still have some of my charm bracelets from the 60's when I was in high school. Everyone wore charm bracelets back then. 
When I went to put some letters in the mail this morning I noticed that snow had melted away from the foundation near the kitchen steps and that my daffodils had poked thru the ground. Yeah!!! A sign of spring. Larger patches of grass are appearing, but there is still a lot of snow covering the yard.

I love charm bracelets. They are so much fun and I like how they kind of jingle when you wear them! This one is fantastic!

I just wanted to thank you for the tags, I got them yesterday. Thanks for sending such a fun variety!
