Pretty Bracelet... "Five for Silver"

It's a long-ish story, but i met Billie and Jan last Christmas at a Craft Fair... Billie is so lovely, you meet her and feel like you've been her friend for decades. Jan is envy makingly beautiful. They have been friends since the beginning of time....
Their husbands run a silver business supplying the jewelery trade and Billie and Jan design silver charms that their husbands then cast for them at their place of work.
Last month i did a sale "At Home with Five for Silver and Friends" type of thing and i FINALLY bought myself one of their bracelets.... It is easier at a House Party because you can sit down with them and basically design the bracelet you want. There are so many varieties: This Bobble stretch bracelet was a bit of one off but they do chain charm bracelets and "Links" style ones.... and, once you've chosen the basic bracelet you want, you can add charms onto it from their huge selection...

This totally appeals to me as i LURVE silver and love charm bracelets.
I chose this GingerMan first to celebrate my GingerMan Xmas Decoration on SnowFish - it is one of theeee most favourite things of mine that i love to make and sell.

Then i added this green ceramic heart which is so pretty. Not at all precious but lots of fun and i can always change it / swap it if i feel like it in the future.

And THEN..... this silver BUTTON! Totally me :) my obsession with buttons solidified in silver. Joy of Joys.
It wasn't a cheap bracelet - but i wanted something quality that will last and that i can add to and change when the mood takes me. Worth every pretty penny.

I am looking forward to meeting up with them again near Christmas and finding a stunning necklace that i can maybe add silver buttons to also!?
This is their ONLINE shop: Five for Silver and this is their (empty) etsy space. If you live near Leamington Spa - fix a date to go round to Jan's if you want one too!

Wow Kirsty, I'm so envious, particularly of the button charm. I might have to start saving my pennies.

By the way, I'm really looking forward to you and Mrs. B's food blog. Yum!!!!
