Like that previous bracelet, which was inspired by the novel I was working on at the time, this one is inspired by the '13 NaNoWriMo novel I've been chugging along on for a few months. I rambled more about the meanings of the charms and why I picked them over on my writing blog, but basically the charms represent each of the seven protagonists in the story; I'm currently writing about carnival performers and artists, so the charms are the mime, the fire-eater, the blade-dancer, the painter, the fire-dancer, the fire-breather, and the musician.
The neat thing is that I wasn't sure if I'd be able to make this bracelet because money's been tight this month so I couldn't justify spending money on the charm I was missing. (All the ones I was finding online that would work were really expensive.) Without that charm, the bracelet would have been pointless to make because the painter is the main protagonist and I didn't have anything in my charm stash that would work for him. Then at the craft store this week fate smiled upon me and I stumbled across the artist palette for $1. I snatched that right up!
