My best friend and his wife recently left on an open ended trip around the world, and I made her this shield bracelet to protect her on her travels. The small shields are silver and copper charms I got off bracelets from a jewellry clearance store, and the large coin is a chinese dragon/phoenix coin I was sent in a whimsy swap last year.

Her hubby seemed a little underwhelmed, but apparently she loved it and had been wearing it non-stop for a few weeks before they left.
