I didn’t see the original post…

BUT I went out and bought my own Bee Charm just before I got married to mark my time on WBee while I was Wedding Planning, and remind me of the wonderful women I met here on WBee.

Most of the Jewellery Companies / Charm Makers have “Bees” in their inventory.  You can find them from a few dollars up to several $ 100 depending on the metals, quality of workmanship, etc.

I never saw the original post but I think bees are neat and have a special meaning for a lot of us here. Whenever I see a bee themed item, I think of my fellow bees!

Aw man I missed it 🙁 but that really does sound like the most adorable idea ever!

like whenI’m feeling low about waiting or have seen another engagement announcement/set of wedding photos I can look at my bee and be reminded of all you awesome ladies who feel the same and not feel as alone 😀

Plus I love bracelets XD I have 6 and a watch that I wear 27/7 a 7th would be pretty sweet :3

I already bought my bracelet and it is on its way.  I wonder if it was deleted because I posted some links to sellers?  Maybe it was looked at as some sort of promotion/sales?  I wasn’t trying to do that at all…just trying to show some inexpensive options I’d found.  Very odd it was deleted.

@kandykane1:  Would you mind sharing which one you got? I had a look at etsy and saw a gold filled one I liked but I’d like to know what other people are getting as well 😀

Oooh, that’s a great idea! I just got a Pandora bracelet as a gift last month – I will definitely have to buy a bee charm to add to it 🙂

@Creiddylad:  I still like the idea!  I even think I saw a cute bee charm in Swarovski!

@Creiddylad:  Hi! That was me that started the original thread. Someone posted that the idea was similar to bracelets that promote eating disorders or something? I didn’t want people to think I was associated with anything like that at all so I deleted it!

I don’t post a lot so I sometimes get anxiety about it haha

@RenoSweeney24:  Nu, it’s called back to school for some reasons but I’ve also found some other (cheaper) ones I like as well XD curse my perpetual indecisivness.

 

 

@ValerieBee03:  Aww that’s a shame! I kind of see how they might very slightly be sort of similar… but not really. Using that logic could you not also say that they were like the bracelets promoting cancer research or against bullying?

And it’s also like the poster is associating “waiting” as a kind of mental disorder, with the bracelets supporting that, rather than them being a little friendly comfort in a potentially frustrating period. Not trying to bash the person that said it to you, just saying it could really be interpreted any which way ^^

(and all the rest of us seem to like it 🙂 )

A waiting bee bracelet associated with eating disorder = dumbest thing ever.

And I’m not even a waiting Bee, I just clicked this thread because I want a charm bracelet lol and saw the word bracelet. UGH. People need to lighten up. I think it’s a lovely idea. And WHEN my DH finally gets the hint and gifts me my bracelet I’ll be getting a bee to go on it mark all the help and stalking I did on WB to help plan our wedding.

@This Time Round:  oh, that’s very sweet – do you have any pictures?

I think this idea is lovely, & i’m ‘waiting’ & I don’t wear bracelets… need to think of something else!
