Is the Ariel bead blue or purple? It is hard to tell from the pictures.

Didn't buy any...but DH got a good idea what to put on my Christmas list!!

Oh, and I have to brag what a wonderful, wonderful, man I'm married to...he surprised me with the gold Tink while on vacation. It is beautiful!!! I'm wearing it on a gold chain right now (will post a pic later).

Thats too bad, I was looking forward to getting that bead, now it doesn't sound like much of a "must have".

Thank you both so much for sharing your observations!

I just returned from WDW and bought a bracelet and 2 charms. This is my new addiction (Disney Dooneys have been for the past 2 years). I can see that this may take awhile...these beads are tiny and I have a whole bracelet to fill! I will have lots of fun filling it up!

Chamilia Walt Disney Spacers

If anyone is looking for these Chamilia Walt Disney Spacers I just found 2 of them for sale on ebay. I was searching for "disney chamilia" and came across them. One is listed as a buy it now for $25 and the other one is listed to bid on. I just thought I would pass this information along since these spacers are retired and seem to be hard to find.

At WDW now and found some cheap beads that Disney sells. They are 6/bead or they have a set of 5 for 20. Just wondering if anyone knows if these fit on the chamilia bracelet and do you know how well they hold up?? Just debating on buying some

They do fit , they are a bit big once on the bracelet. They hold up ok , tarnished after a while. I don't use mine anymore, personally I would save my money for a authentic bead.

I didn't see this mentioned already...

Perfect Pear is having a nice offer.

For every $50 you spend in gift certificates they give you $12.50 to spend the week after Christmas!

I bought myself $200 worth and will have a bonus $50 to spend!

They have the Swarovski blue Mickey head bead on sale for $101 instead of $135!

Nice!

I just saw pictures of the new first quarter 2013 Chamilia Disney beads!

A Mickey head dangle, a Mickey icon cutout, a Snow White themed dangle and a red enamel Minnie bow!

I don't know how to post pictures, but I am sure someone will soon!

I just thought I'd share the two new beads I received from my hubby for Christmas...
First is the Purple Crystal Crown and the other is Cracked Ice.



I love them both. And even though the crown isn't techically part of the Disney collection, I think it fits in well on my bracelet with all the other Disney beads!

Our local jewelry store where my husband has bought all my beads is going out of business . It was SOOOO convenient for him and every once and a while I would get a surprise bead for no reason. If there's a bright side, they currently have the beads/charms 40% off and I went in today and picked up three locking beads. If I have any money left after my upcoming Disney trip, I might have to go back in and buy a few more things.

I am gonna start playing too!!!

My friend got me a Chamilia bracelet for my birthday... and then got me a Swarovski charm for Christmas. It didn't fit. Apparently you need a "charm holder" bead in order to hang the charms - which my friend was unaware of... and after looking at them on the Swarovski site, I was baffled! The charm holders, which look boring beads, are $50. So... we took the charm back and got a panda bead!!!! And then I bought myself 2 purple infinity beads.



I think I just started a new obsession! I'm so excited to be going to WDW in a month... and I'm gonna buy myself a Disney bead or 2. I LOVE the new Minnie Mouse and Snow White.

I checked out the Chamilia website and it says the dangling Cinderella slipper bead is still available and it's not on the "retiring end of 2012" list... you think I will be able to find this bead in WDW still?
