Silver Sunday

It's official, the day has come for Silver Sunday! I want to share some of my favorite silver charm bracelets. I have to mention that I am a sucker for charms! You could say I have a "Passion for Charms"...hahaha. Anyhow..the first is my SS charm bracelet I have been putting together for quite sometime now and it has gotten quite heavy and you can hear me coming a mile away.lol  The second is my quirky Elvis charm bracelet. When I found the Elvis charms I HAD to make a bracelet out of it...I love it. Lastly (is that a word?)...one of my many charm bracelets that I put togeter from junky pieces of jewelry I have come across. This is one of my passions, I cannot go to a flea market or thrift store without looking for charms. Bad habit!!  Ok..I am off to Gypsy Fish to see what silver goodies I find.  Happy Silver Sunday!!    Ohhhhh..in case you are wondering about the book, it's called "A Passion for Charms", by Amy Elliott. Great illustrations..check it out.
Hugs..Sylvia

What wonderful charm bracelets! My aunt gave me hers and I cherished it. Sadly when my house was burglarized all of my jewelry was taken and it was irreplaceable.

I'll be posting tomorrow for Silver Sunday!

Silvia you have some awesome charm bracelets...its fun to see a charm addict's bracelets, I especially love the 3rd one.
I pick up vintage ones every once in awhile...they sell quite quickly...of course to those "addicts" like yourself!

Very pretty bracelets! So well put together. I love how the more y ou wear silver the more it shines. My silver ring never tarnishes, it's always being polished between my fingers.

I have a charm bracelet my parents started for me when I was 10. (almost 40 years ago!) THey added to it every holiday and vacation trip they took. I haven't worn it much since high school; it is so clunky and catches on my sweaters. Everyone keeps asking me to take it off so they can see all the charms. Mom alwasys looked for charms that opened or moved in some way, not just the flat boring ones.

I was so happy to see your bracelet. That is one of the ideas I had as well, as I am a little limited when it comes to Silver.....I am really going to be creative in my silver posts. This will be fun.

I hadn't thought to use charms in my silver post. What a great idea! I so admire those who can do jewelry making. Needless-to-say, my talents do NOT lay in that field, no matter how I wish they did. *smiles*

Happy Silver Sunday. Blessings... Polly

Hi Sylvia, seems like forever since I have had a chance to visit! I love your silver post...it is ever so "charming" :) sorry had to follow up on Gypsy Fishes comment :) I love your charm bracelets...I have so many pieces everywhere for that "one" day that I can make one myself. I don't know if I can choose my favorite, although my daughters loved the Elvis one, your last one is so elegant but the first...well I would love to have that announce my arrival into any room ;) Besos, Rose

You have some fun charm bracelets. It's a great thing to hunt for at flea markets/thrift stores. I especially love the one put together with "junky" pieces.
