    At WDW now and found some cheap beads that Disney sells. They are 6/bead or they have a set of 5 for 20. Just wondering if anyone knows if these fit on the chamilia bracelet and do you know how well they hold up?? Just debating on buying some :)

    They do fit , they are a bit big once on the bracelet. They hold up ok , tarnished after a while. I don't use mine anymore, personally I would save my money for a authentic bead.

    I didn't see this mentioned already...

    Perfect Pear is having a nice offer.

    For every $50 you spend in gift certificates they give you $12.50 to spend the week after Christmas!

    I bought myself $200 worth and will have a bonus $50 to spend!

    They have the Swarovski blue Mickey head bead on sale for $101 instead of $135!

    Nice!

    I just saw pictures of the new first quarter 2013 Chamilia Disney beads!

    A Mickey head dangle, a Mickey icon cutout, a Snow White themed dangle and a red enamel Minnie bow!

    I don't know how to post pictures, but I am sure someone will soon!

    I just thought I'd share the two new beads I received from my hubby for Christmas...
    First is the Purple Crystal Crown and the other is Cracked Ice.

    I love them both. And even though the crown isn't techically part of the Disney collection, I think it fits in well on my bracelet with all the other Disney beads!

    Our local jewelry store where my husband has bought all my beads is going out of business :(. It was SOOOO convenient for him and every once and a while I would get a surprise bead for no reason. If there's a bright side, they currently have the beads/charms 40% off and I went in today and picked up three locking beads. If I have any money left after my upcoming Disney trip, I might have to go back in and buy a few more things.

    I am gonna start playing too!!!

    My friend got me a Chamilia bracelet for my birthday... and then got me a Swarovski charm for Christmas. It didn't fit. Apparently you need a "charm holder" bead in order to hang the charms - which my friend was unaware of... and after looking at them on the Swarovski site, I was baffled! The charm holders, which look boring beads, are $50. So... we took the charm back and got a panda bead!!!! And then I bought myself 2 purple infinity beads.

    I think I just started a new obsession! I'm so excited to be going to WDW in a month... and I'm gonna buy myself a Disney bead or 2. I LOVE the new Minnie Mouse and Snow White.

    I checked out the Chamilia website and it says the dangling Cinderella slipper bead is still available and it's not on the "retiring end of 2012" list... you think I will be able to find this bead in WDW still?

    Thanks to some help from you ladies after a period of lurking and drooling over everyone's bracelets, I now have my own and took advantage of after Xmas sales to begin the fun of filling it! I will post a pic later. I have the pumpkin coach, slipper, Jiminy Cricket, Wishes bead, Mrs. Potts, and silver Tink. Need some color though! I also bought my kids birthstones and told DH he was set for Mothers day, LOL!
    Anyway, I hoped one of you experts could answer this question-I love the Minnie bow that was posted a couple days ago. Will it be out on the chamilia website after the current sale is over? Also does Chamilia ever do a buy 2 get 1 free direct or is that up to individual stores? I took advantage of the 30 percent off sale but still have a big wish list left!!!
    Thank you all for your great pics and posts-I have enjoyed this thread!!

    This may be too late for Sammi, but this store is terrible. They list things that they do not have in stock and cannot get. And then they hold your money and won't refund. I have an ongoing PayPal dispute with them. It is ugly!

    I would stay away!

    Has anyone seen these beads before? I got these around 2008/2009 at Downtown Disney Anaheim at WOD. I'm pretty sure that they were called "story beads". Now when I ask a CM about them, no one seems to know what I'm talking about...even when I show them. These beads are stamped "Disney" and "925".

    Too late for me! I ordered and then they called and said they didn't have what I ordered since they were retired and what would I like to do? I hope I get a refund. Yikes! Miss Peach, have you gotten your situation resolved?

    Yes, I've seen ones like these all over WDW and DL. I don't know if they have the "925" stamp, but the styles are very similar. I saw them on both coasts this summer.

    Hi, all!
    I am looking for two of the Miss Chamilia Minnie beads and was wondering if anyone has seen them around the Land or World or at any of your local Chamilia dealers? These are the kids' beads that were discontinued about 6 months ago.
    I've called throughout my area and searched the 'net and ebay--no luck though :confused3

    Yes, finally! It had to work its way through PayPal's dispute channels. Six weeks later the charge was reversed.

    The thing that makes me feel like they are a scam is that they know the beads are retired and they know they cannot get more, and yet, they still allow the purchase to be made.

    And secondly, they didn't just refund my money when I asked them to. They held on for six weeks until forced to refund.

    I agree that there is definitely something off about this place. The communications I got were LESS than satisfactory, and I don't understand why they list these beads on their website for sale?? I'm sticking to Ebay from now on. Lesson learned! Im glad it all worked out for you finally but six weeks is ridiculous.
