As chamilia beads are true artworks, they are not mothers charm but for the young heart. These chamilia bracelets are comparable to the Pandora bracelets, necklaces and beads and in my experience the two are interchangeable. With chamilia beads you can not miss ones made of sterling silver, 14k gold or a mixture of both, enamel, gemstones, Murano glass or even Analisa glass. Lock shaped Chamilia beads popularly referred to as spacers are also available; these hold other beads in place. It is possible first you add a few beads to your bracelets' base to slide around over time just to make some fashion statement.
Chamilia bead assortment is quite astonishing as they range from Disney character such as Mickey Mouse and Winnie the Pooh to religious messages like soul mate, I love you. This is to attract your curiosity. They too showcase fliflops, drama masks and musical notes.

Regular beads are also available for people who love the traditional look jewelry though there is nothing extra ordinary about the beads. For instance the Murano beads are bi-coloured and have the look of freshness from the glass blowers pipe. On the other hand, Swarovski crystals have lots of beads and you can too get those intricately curved metal one whilst others are accented with pearls and enamel multicoloured ones.
Beads commemorating world events are also available and part of their sales proceeds are ploughed back to charity. This line of Chamilia beads reminding you of breast cancer, hurricane Katrina and the Asian Tsunamis.
Each individual Chamilia bead is truly a piece of art, whether it's a bracelet or necklace you are looking for, they are pieces of art collections. They are even sold in boutiques and they pride themselves of uniqueness and high quality.
Typically, Chamilia beads are sold online though you can be able to find retailers who are authorizes by Chamilia to act on their behalf. On their website, they have listed their local dealers so you should not have problems locating them near you.
Solid gold or silver is used to make each individual bead and there are no replicas. Compared to ordinary beads, Chamilia beads are expensive and are priced from $24 to $100. It should be noted here that they are worth the salt since they are made of high quality precious gemstones and metals. They are true gifts of love!
