The theme of this charm bracelet is classic gothic romance novels with miniature books and charms to match the subject. These classic books feature remote manor houses and castles; heroines facing mysterious perils; moody gentlemen with unclear intentions; and lots of gloomy weather and howling winds. To make the books, I laminated tiny images of Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte, Dragonwyck by Anya Seton, Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier, and Mistress of Mellyn by Victoria Holt. The charms include a heart locket that opens, a ring with a solitary crystal, a woman in a long gown, a castle, a heart with a key, a secret door, and a suit of armor which adds to the gloom of long dark hallways. The beads have lots of sparkle and will shimmer in candlelight, moonlight, or daylight walks in the garden. They include red and lavender hearts, faux pearls, Celestial Crystals, and sparkling Swarovski crystals in red, green, opal, clear, and lavender.
These elements are suspended from a silvertone Figaro chain, and a Swarovski crystal and a heart locket are suspended from the end of the chain. The bracelet closes with a large lobster claw clasp embellished with a heart which can be hooked to the part of the chain that makes the best fit. It is adjustable from 6 ¾ to 8 ¾ inches. This charm bracelet with its detailed charms, gemstones, and sparkling crystals is the perfect accessory for the avid reader of novels with gothic and mysterious settings.
