What do you think of when you
think of a Charm Bracelet? I think
of moments that mark our lives.
The Good, The Bad and the Once in
a lifetime. To me a Charm Bracelet is
like a walking Photo Album. You carry
your memories with you.
Since I was a Little girl I wanted
one but this thing is when you are young
the bracelet doesn't have the same
meaning. I could have had my First
Communion on it, Birthstone and maybe
even High School Graduation but those
were all simple things and I was young
and my focus shifted a mile a minute.
Then I grew older and got lost in my
life. I forgot. I was too busy.
A few weeks ago I had the chance
to review a Charm Bracelet from The
Charm Factory and I had to sit down
and think how I would fill it. I knew I
always wanted one, let's face it, the
look really nice, go with anything and
are always a conversation starter. But
I never thought how I would fill it. So
I reelected on my life and what it has
meant to me and pick out charms that
belong to me.
I added Charms for my children.
My Pooch, my Birthstone and Baby
shoes for the years my kids were young
for those were the best of my life.
I choose to Symbolize my Ancestors
and John and picked out one of my
Hobbies to add. What I ended up
with was a story on my wrist.
My story. My life story.
I was super impressed when the
box showed up on my doorstep and
The Charm Factory did a spectacular job.
Each Charm has beautiful detail and the
Swarovski Crystals are flawless. The Chain
appears delicate but on closer inspection
of both the chain and the charms you can
tell that both are durable and meant to be worn
not stored in a box for a special event. These
are for you to wear everyday and carry your
past, present, secretes and dreams with
you on your wrist to share with the world.
Though I could change the order should I
want to I believe they have a knack at
the Charm factory for arranging them for
mine is the perfect constancy, the colors
scheme is charming and it does not
appear cluttered or busy in anyway.
I Love my bracelet and the only thing
I can do to convey with you how I feel
about it is to let you know it was worth
the 40 year wait!
The Charm factory has more Charms
then you can imagine and cover everything
you could dream of from Children, to Hobbies,
to pets to Message and Recovery Charms. They
even have Twilight inspired Charms. Whatever
your Fancy they can tickle it! They also carry a
large variety of chains for you to choose from
to add an even more personal touch to your
treasure. They are Sterling Silver and you
can even order it by the foot to make your
own bracelet of necklace. The Charm Factory
also carries pre-made Finished Bracelets so
if you a struggling for that perfect gift they
have you covered. They also have other items
such as cell phone straps and Rings but the
bracelets are to die for!
