Wish Bracelet

Picture
This is a little bracelet I give to all the girls I work with, who do GCSE Food, before they go off to do their exams.  One of them came bursting  into my office yesterday and said “It worked, Miss, I got A*!”
I bought 100 “Wish” charms off e-bay, a while back.  I was very very apprehensive, as the seller was in China, but they arrived safely and cost about £6 inc P & P, what a bargain! I have seen other people selling them at £2+ for just 5. All I did was attach a pink cotton thread.
The organza bag is so dinky, I think I found them on one of those rotary stands in a craft shop – something very similar to “Craft for Christmas” (their packets have a white label with a blue pattern, if that’s any help!).
You could use this idea for lots of different occasions with different charms (I like the Tibetan silver charms best, they do other words too, like love, hope and believe).  What about a tiny wing for a child just going off to University or a star on a red thread for Christmas?
