Please note - these are all Vintage/Antique charms - NO reproductions! Original Nuvo charms are worth much more than todays repros. There is absolutely nothing wrong with repros as long as they are properly listed as such so you know what you are buying. If the price looks too good to be true - there is a good chance it is a reproduction.

I have been designing these types of charm bracelets since very early in my career. Most are commissioned pieces where I actually shop for the charms at the time of the order. Of course I pick up things as I go and have some pieces shipped directly to me from the UK and France so I have a large stash of charms and baubles available most of the time.
I periodically assemble bracelets with my left over charms after a commission - I like to combine unusual charms in a theme and use a central color.
This bracelet as is will be offered on Ruby Lane for a short period of time priced for the collector. If it does not sell within the established time it will be taken apart and the charms sold off individually.
I offer an easy to use and liberal Layaway plan.
If you would like to see more photos of individual charms please don't hesitate to email me - there isn't enough space in the listings to show them all up close so I will be happy to send them to you separately.
Please note that my photos are highly enlarged and therefore magnify every nuance many of which are not visible to the naked eye.
This will be shipped with Signature Confirmation, Delivery Confirmation and Fully Insured through a 3rd party. Any overages in shipping will be refunded to the buyer.
