After I fill this one up, I am going to start a new one specifically Disney!!
That is exactly what I am going to do in the future too Currently mine too has Disney and beads that have special meaning. But soon I am going to have one just specific to Disney, thinking that will happen in Sept. when I go to Disney and just have to buy some more beads.

More beautiful bracelets! Anyone care to share which bracelet style they prefer? I am going to ask DH if I can get one for my bday if it is in our budget, but not sure which style I like the best? Does one style hold more beads than the other?

I think it's really just personal preference as to which style you like best. One thing you need to think about though is how many beads you want on your bracelet. If you think that you will fill it someday, you need to make sure it is big enough, otherwise they get tight with all those beads on it.

Also, if you go with the bangle style bracelet (Chamilia) you don't need to purchase any locks to keep the beads in place, since it has little balls that slide on.

The best thing to do is to go try some on and see what feels best to you.

Good luck!

Thanks HockeyMomNH! I was wondering about the bead issue. I have unusually thin wrists and was afraid the bracelt would be too big and fall off, but if I can get a bracelet I would definately want to fill it up. I like the look of it with beads all the way around. On the other hand, I like the look of the bangle with beads just on the top too. Now add in the fact that I already have a long list of beads that I want and I don't know what to choose. Oh, such tough decisions!

I have pretty small wrists too. To give you an idea of what you can fit on a bracelet, my black and red bracelet is 7.5 inches, and the pink one is 7.1 inches.

The bracelets do tend to stretch from the weight of the beads too, so they will get a little looser after you have worn them for a while.

I used Christmas money from my mom and dad to buy a black leather bracelet and a daughter charm. I've been to the jewelry store so much that the girl there "knows" me and suggested I use the black bracelet for my Disney charms so that that's what I decided to do. So I have one Disney bracelet and one other bracelet. It's just so hard to decide which one to wear on which days.

I don't have anyone in my life I would/could buy the Miss Chamilia for, but I would LOVE to see a picture. From what I've seen of them in print they look adorable.

I wish the Miss Chamilia beads fit the regular bracelets because they have some really cute Disney ones

Here is my daughter's miss chamilia bracelet.



They are really cute, but tiny. They might work nicely on a thin necklace too.

After seeing all of the Disney Chamilia beads I decided I had to have a bracelet! I got my first one today. I chose the flex bangle style, because I like how you can slide those round beads on it so your other beads won't slide around (without the locks) like on the other type. I can see that I may end up with both styles at some point once I really have enough beads. They seem like they could become addicting!
I didn't buy a bead yet, but told DD which one I have my eye on for Mother's day! I love the Disney one that says Dreams really do come true!

melmar136 the Dreams reall do come true is my favorite Disney bead! I really like the swirl mickey head dangle too. The murano glass has caught my eye too. Oh, I'll never be able to design a nice bracelet at this rate!

Size range of the Bangle style

Does it say somewhere as to what the size range is for the bangle style? The choices are just medium, large and x-large.

I wear a size 7 1/4 - 7 1/2 inch bracelet. I have the bangle in a large. I only have the black cz Mickey head bead on it, and I think I might leave it like that because I like the look, accenting that bead. It fits fine with the single bead on it. I don't know how it would be if I tried to fill the entire bangle up with beads, though. Hope this helps!
