Charm bracelets are experiencing a revival in jewelry trends, and there are dozens of companies creating new styles and designs. You can buy a ready made bracelet, but it's a lot of fun to create your own and add charms as mementos of your experiences.
I'm a vintage charm collector and have assembled dozens of personalized charm bracelets, both for myself and as gifts. I like my bracelets to represent something specific and to be balanced so I follow a process when creating a bracelet. You may want to pick charms that are cute and catch your eye as you come across them. Whatever your plan, there are a few things that will help you make sure your finished masterpiece will be balanced and aesthetically pleasing.
