Outlander Series Charm Bracelet

I can't believe how behind I am on posting so many things!  This bracelet was also made for dear Melissa in our own private version of the Mini 12 Days of Christmas Swap.  It is based on Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series of novels, which we both adore, and which I'm going to reread this summer.
It is made with a mix of glass, wood, semi-precious stone beads, pressed glass leaves, and freshwater pearls, all in shades reminiscent of the Fraser hunting tartan. Warm earthy browns, soft heather-greens, deep forests, clear sky blues, creamy pearls and burnished coppers.
The charms include:
Goblet - for cousin Jared's wine business
Snowflake - for a Breath of Snow and Ashes
Letter - written by Jaime to Brianna living in the future
Nurse Cap - for Claire at the beginning of the series
Anchor - for Jaime & Claire's trip in Voyager
Highland Stag
French Coin - for the legendary Frenchman's gold
Celtic Cross
Ladies Fan - for Claire's time at court in France
Jaime's Sword
Celtic Heart
Dragonfly - for Dragonfly in Amber
Scottish Thistle
Horse - for all the horses Jaime cared for
Tree - for the family tree on Drums of Autumn
Kilt - traditional Scottish dress outlawed by the English
Teapot - for Claire's love of tea
Strawberry - from Clan Fraser's crest
Hourglass - for Jaime & Claire's time together
