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.

The travel charms are definitely the most popular and the most unique. Thanks for visiting Tara_W
Great ideas and tips for assembling an heirloom charm bracelet. I've encountered many charm bracelets while working as an appraiser and I'm always fascinated by the charms people have chosen, especially the travel themed bracelets.
Like you, lots of folks have fond memories of charm bracelets they had when they were younger. I think that's part of the current appeal. Thanks for visiting PeggyHazelwood.
What fun ideas for charm bracelets. I used to have one and lost it somewhere along the way. I miss my little charms.
I've seen those telephone company bracelets and they're really nice. That was a thoughtful gift to present to employees. Thanks for visiting.
I had a charm bracelet some time ago. I retired from the telephone company and had different types of phones on it as well as service anniversary charms. I wish I had it now. It got left somewhere along the way.
I know that little toaster charm. Moving charms are some of the most exciting to find. Thanks for visiting.
I still have a charm bracelet from back when I was a kid. One of my favorite charms always was the little toaster, with toast that pops up! Now that I know they are coming back into fashion I should wear it!
