As I mentioned in a past blog post, my mother-in-law Nancy is a romance novelist. As with most writers, she has a close group of "writer-friends" that she uses as editors and/or critics and vice versa. This Christmas season, she asked me to help her find special charms for each of her writer friends specific genres to incorporate into a bracelet for each. She also wanted to use charms that represented her own recent set of books. We used several different colors of beads, some found from my bead-stash and others purchased, and used a stretchy, fits-most wrists easily, thread for stringing. Some of the charms were Werewolf paw prints, handcuffs, handguns, hearts, books titled "romance novels", typewriters, Egyptian themed charms, horses, horseshoes, fairies, dragons, and almost anything else you could imagine. Many of the charms Nancy was able to special order from Chubby Chico Charms!
