    It took a year, but almost done - until I find better charms. Posted my inspiration for a California theme charm bracelet last year, starting with a few mining and orange charms. L-R Los Angeles enamel shield, miner, shovel/pickax, CA state bone fetish bear, scales (gold or legal LOL), ore cart, orange state CA, oil well, desert view, no parking (this relates to where I live, no parking at all ) Long Beach Mac Douglass air industry, orange crate, palm tree, whale tail, Hollywood, SF golden gate bridge, 2 birds and CA sand/sun/sky/forest jasper stone.

    Just my first pass. I have been hunting for more unique sterling silver charms: Reagan or Nixon, 84 Olympics, Navy/Marine, Disney, California missions, racetracks, Queen Mary Long Beach (duh).....surprised how hard it is to find but I know they are out there. I enjoy the hunt!

      DUH!!! LOL! You crack me up. Now I have some more charms for you. Honestly, I don't want them and I can't throw them away, so... they're yours but I can't dig them out and take pics of them. I will however start setting them aside. I just toss them in the drawers they're in or to another drawer. I believe I have taken a pic before, a long time ago and posted it here. I dunno… It's a paratrooper from the 40's, sterling too. I will never wear him on anything and my daughter doesn't want him either!

      Fabulous updated new additions to your wonderful unique CA charm bracelet Mary, love the new ones esp the bear. Lol about the no parking we've got that here in NY, went to an eye doctor in Queens County a couple yrs ago, hubby & I come out and get a big fat parking ticket it's crazy

      After I typed the word 'painting' I had some doubt but wasn't sure what. Now I do remember that card. It still looks great!

      Very unique! Success in completing it :-D
    7. valentino97 valentino97, 2 months ago
      Jenni - it really should be a brown bear, so I'm on the lookout for that. I believe that parking tickets alone pay for the upkeep of our cities! And how about those confusing "no parking over 1 hour after 7 pm on alternate Wed., or during special events" THAT is commonly seen in Los Angeles' funnest neighborhoods and very confusing. My city of Long Beach - is not far behind!

      Share - yes, it's a great postcard. I love old postcards.

      Kyra - charm bracelets are not really in style, but putting a theme together is a lot of fun and intended to be a gift to one of my nieces someday. I am thinking about a sewing theme for my little sister as my next project...

      Thank you for your loves - AnythingObsure, Keving, GlamorousFun, Ken, Thomas, Hel1!!

      Love charm bracelets. That's a lovely collection. Great theme idea. Looking forward to seeing your next project. I love to collect the charms, too, but don't find too many. Definitely out of style but that makes them all the more intriguing.

      Thanks Maureen - used to find sterling charms everywhere for $5 or less, no longer the case. Yes, I think a sewing charm bracelet for little sister is next.

      Mani - I LOVE them too! Thanks for getting this.

      Thank you Ivonne and Daisy1000 for your loves.

      I have to get out more...( of costume jewelry).
      Charm bracelets are fabulous. My Mother had a sterling bracelet with about 30 sterling charms on, was it heavy! Ha!
      This “charming” bracelet is so cool, being a California girl like yourself, I can appreciate it all the more.
      Beautiful Mary!

      Oh, and the oranges postcard is perfect!
      ( I miss my orange tree, it only produced in January, but wow, were they delicious)
    14. valentino97 valentino97, 1 month ago
      Eileen - thanks for loving this charming silly CA attempt. I'll find some special ones, might take a little while. Oh yes some delicious oranges and lemons right now. Also, not sure where they were from but really yummy grapefruit too! Thanks for sharing your Mom's treasures. Mine did not have ANY jewelry. Always bummed me out because she went to so many farm sales and thrift stores over the years. LOL, Her interests and obsessions were fabrics, quilts and random cat doo-dads...
