13 unusual silver charms, attached to the bracelet you found under your pillow after the thunder storm

1. A teddy bear with two heads.
2. A heart with a large crack zigzagging down the middle.
3. A bird’s foot, scimitar-clawed.
4. A serpent, twisting around an apple.
5. A brain.
6. A pig’s trotter.
7. A hammer and sickle.
8. An exquisitely coiled turd.
9. A grinning moon.
10. A lightbulb.
11. The head of Mr Punch, bleakly benign.
12. A clenched fist.
13. An ornate capital B, or perhaps the number 13.
