Hermes petit h Ribbon Charms

I love the petit h ribbon charms.  If you don't know what they are:  the ribbon charms are small pieces of leather in various shapes, mostly critters, that Hermes attaches to the ribbons on the petit h products.

Heart & monkey ribbon charms

I now have four of them from various petit h items, including the two on these birthday gifts above.  In addition to the heart and monkey above, I also have a turtle and a round one.  I feel like it's such a waste to not be able to do something with these charms, so I searched You Tube to see if anyone had posted a video of ideas, but amazingly I couldn't find any.   (I did find that people sell them for at least $50 each, but that's another story.)  Since I couldn't find any suggestions of how to wear them I came up with a few ideas of my own.

Mini Kelly pochette with twilly & ribbon charm

First I took my mini Kelly pochette and wrapped the handle with a beautiful twilly a friend gave me a few years ago for Christmas.  Then I slid the heart ribbon charm on one side.  I think it looks adorable!

Second, I experimented with sliding the monkey charm on a small Hermes scarf, which was also a gift a number of years ago.  The monkey ribbon charm worked like a scarf ring or even just a decoration.

So cute!

A unique decoration

Whether adorning a bag or a scarf (Hermes, of course) around the neck or wrist, I think these are great ways to utilize the ribbon charms.  If you have any other ideas I'd love to see them!
