I really like the leather ones that wrap multiple times around your wrist (more length for more beads! ), but am also worried that the leather doesn't wear as well as the metal ones... any suggestions for a chamilia newbie?
I have at least one of each style of Chamilia bracelet and my leather one is the one I wear most often, I love it with jeans. It is also my bracelet with the most Disney charms on. Buy the bracelet ahead of time and some locks. Otherwise the charms just clump up. I use to have 5 locks but have switched to 6. Each set of locks allows you a grouping of beads, a single lock lets you do a group up against the clasp. I like 3 groups (hence 5 or 6 locks) one large group in the centre, a smaller one above and a med size group below.

Make sure you try each lock on the bracelet, some fit, others don't, it is a tight squeeze. I have heart shaped locks for one pair, stars for another, and scrolls for the final set. I also have 3 sets of Murano glass on my bracelets in reds, golds, and yellow.

Thanks for this info! While browsing the website yesterday, I loved the leather too but I have a very small wrist and was wondering how it worked with the charms with it wrapping multiple times. Looks like these can get addictive!

Thanks so much for your advice! How does the leather hold up? Does it fray/wear out where the charms are/have been? I'm pretty much decided on the cognac colored leather wrap bracelet, but I'm worried about how it wears over time, but that's my only concern-- if that gets addressed, I'll be totally sold!

Mine is about 6 months old and I wear it 3 days per week on average. It seems to be holding up well. It has stretched slightly.

First off, thank you to those who addressed my "upside down ship on a necklace" issue.

So... I went to Disneyland the other night and had to figure this out --- which of course resulted in giving the Mouse more of my money. So, here's where I am right now with my necklace and my upside down hanging ship.

First, I checked out (translation: looked at and later bought) the castle charm. (Hey! You gotta have the castle!) And the pumpkin carriage. (Come on now, it's Cinderella's coach!)

Then I talked to the CM there about the necklace / ship issue. I had the ship with me. She took out a bracelet and we put the ship on it. Upside down it went. Not an issue on the bracelet, but illustrated the problem for the necklace. She suggested using locks.

Then she showed me a lock and how I might be able to work with it on the necklace. They only had one in stock, but she showed me her idea. And, yeah, I bought it because I think it could be the key to my solution (once I get a second one ).

And then I bought the bracelet because a lady likes options.

So... here we are:

My three charms and a lock on a bracelet



And how they would hang on a necklace



But... if I shove the ship all the way over to the end of the bracelet and push it in place with the lock, when I hold it up and it's hanging:



So... if I can get another lock, I think I might have a right-side-up floating ship on a necklace.

And now I have a bracelet too!

Thanks for the ideas and input. If anyone has any questions I can answer, let me know.

I also want to thank everyone for the conversation/input... I went out and got a bracelet and a couple of locks earlier today after checking out the selection at a local jeweler. Can't wait to start getting some charms on our cruise in a few weeks!

Just out of curiosity, I've been doing some digging and it seems like some of the Disney charms are becoming seemingly scarce, as though they are being discontinued... what sort of selection do they have on the ship? Do they carry other charms, like some the murano glass or jeweled beads on the ship? What about in the parks? Has anyone noticed a decline in stock/selection?

I think that DCL does not get charms in as often as retailers, the only DCL only charm that I have ever seen is the ship with the logo. They do carry a limited selection of other Chamilias, and I imagine that those are what ever the merchandiser thinks will sell, they can't carry them all, for sure. I have seen Pandora beads in some ports as well as Troll, the Pandora prices were equal to what I would pay here with tax, no bargain at all. As far as decline in availability, they only have so many on the ship and when they are gone, they have to wait until they can be restocked, which could take until the ship is back at home, or several weeks.

Thanks for the demo and pics! This helps me a lot - I was wondering if the locks would hold something right-side-up, which it looks like it will

Good idea to get the bracelet and a couple of locks before the cruise in case the selection is limited on the ship. I'm now thinking of doing the same thing...and crossing my fingers that they have the DCL charm for both of us! Good Luck!

Can anyone tell me if the sell the locks on the ships? Going on the Dream in February with a Pandora bracelet. I '"could" take the camilla charms I have now off and go to Pandora to buy the locks but would just prefer to do it all at once on the ship.

Just wanted to update- they had a bunch of the DCL Chamilia charms on the Magic during our Christmas cruise. I made sure to get to the store right when they opened, but they seem to have plenty available as they never sold out during our cruise. They had a great selection of other charms too, better than most of the stores in the parks, but I do not recall seeing any of the locks. They did have some of the bracelets, but not the full selection from the Chamilia catalog. Happy shopping!

I got the DCL charm on our cruise on the Magic in February. As an FYI, if you have a Pandora bracelet, make sure you bring it with you and ensure the charm fits on before purchasing it. The one I bought did and it just happened there was another lady there who had just bought one and she overheard me talking and asking to ensure it fit. I let her put the one she bought on my bracelet to try and it didn't fit...so she picked another of the same one and it worked.
