9 and Rose Best of British charm bracelet by Lovelyruthie 9 and Rose Best of British charm bracelet by Lovelyruthie
Available to buy via etsy :)

Come with me, back to heady days of the summer of 1983 when a much younger Ruthie was baking 'free from a cereal packet' shrinkles in the gas oven with help from my Mother, the obligatory adult in these sort of craft situations. I loved my slightly wobbly Shreddies keyrings, now lost in the mists of time.

Fast forward to present day where Ruthie now creates hand-drawn & super cute charms, none of which have anything to do with cereal, from the aforementioned Shrinkles. The technology has moved on somewhat, I no longer rely on kitchen appliances to cook them, but they're just as much fun to make!

This charm bracelet features the wonderful 9 & Rose & celebrates their first meeting in the episode 'Rose'. With the Best of British theme the bracelet is silverplate - charms include from left to right: silverplate crown with crystals, handmade Rose Tyler charm, silverplate/enamelled union jack heart, handmade TARDIS, silverplate London Eye, handmade 9th Doctor & a silverplate enamelled bus. It is unlikely that I will be making one of these in an identical design again so it is truly one of a kind - when it's gone, it's gone!

This piece can be adjusted by length, let me know what you'd like in inches. Like all of my work, it arrives in a presentation organza bag & a union jack box too (pictured) - although the box is not bigger on the inside.

As I create the charms from scratch I can create them in any colourway or style so I am open to custom orders. The same design charms can also be made into earrings, bracelets, phone charms etc.

Shrink plastic - the brand I use is shrinkles. You draw on the the thin plastic, cut out the design & then when you heat it, it shrinks to 7-9x smaller/thicker.

It's great stuff :)

I buy mine from eBay but most craft shops sell it - shrinkles is the main brand here in the UK.
