I love my charms, as most of you know. It may be that outside of actual shops that sell charms, I have the world's biggest collection of bronze charms. They are very popular in my online shops. I'm thinking of putting a facility on my website for Chritmas so that people can design their own charm bracelet by choosing combinations of charms - do you think that would work? It will take a lot of organising and I haven't started yet, although I have discovered a lovely little app (Framemagic) that lets me make collages like this really easily.
So browsing charms a couple of weeks ago I came across a lovely leopard head. Great, I thought, it will make a pretty bag charm with a glass animal print bead I've already got. So the charm came, I put the bead with it. This is the result:
Spotted the deliberate (not) mistake (excuse the pun)? Do leopards have stripes? No, they do not. Should I have thought of this before? Yes. Am I going to change it? No. It will have to be the big cats bag charm instead... Doh!
