Spring is finally here (although when I’m writing this it’s only a few degrees above freezing and raining hard here in the Northeast – but at least the trees are getting greener and the flowers are in bloom), and I’m sure everyone is as excited as I am about being able to put away those heavy winter coats and layers and layers of clothing. I love wearing my bracelets year round, but in the winter, they’re mostly hidden under long, warm sleeves. The warmer months is the perfect time to show off your favorite charms and new bracelet creations and acquisitions (those cute little three-quarter sleeve tops are ideal for this purpose!).
In light of that, I thought I’d start a little mini-series of posts where we take a look at the various companies’ new collections for spring, and first out are the new Chamilia bracelet beads.
The Chamilia bracelet charms spring collection is girly, light, flowery and most definitely inspired by the season. There are 26 new beads: four 24k gold glass beads, all in warm, golden tones, 8 different flower bead designs, three “entwined jewel” beads with clear and colored Swarovski crystals, 7 “miscellaneous” designs (morning dew, sun showers, serve and protect, etc.), and finally, my favorites, 4 little purses (with lids that open) – 2 silver and enamel in red and pink, and 2 in silver with sparkly cubic zirconia.
Here are my top picks from each of these “categories”:
And here is a bracelet I created with beads from the new collection (at a total of $1,640):
Gorgeous, isn’t it?

Chamilia bracelet prices vary quite a bit (from $35 for the plain leather to $1,500 for the longer 14k gold bracelets), and of course the final price also depends on the beads you put on them. The charms in the new collection range from $30 (for the basic silver charms) to $420 (for the 14k gold charms).
