So, I was excited to receive these bracelets for free from CharmFactory.com as I've not worn a charm bracelet lately. (I go through jewelry phases, don't you?)
The other one has knitting-related charms on it (so cool!). There's the standard yarn ball and needles (though you do have to be careful they don't get caught on your knitting, which I always thought was kind of ironic about the design!), a button, a little sweater (T-shirt style), a "Handmade" charm, and a "made with love" heart-shaped charm.
Just a very sweet bracelet! I've never had any knitting-related jewelry and it's just fun to wear something that reminds you of what you love!
The heart bracelet features 3 little puffed hearts alternating with 2 smaller hearts with beaded edges. Totally wearable and great for layering with other bracelets!
The bracelet chains are also quite nice. They aren't like those chunky silver ones that used to be popular in the 90's. These chains are delicate and pretty, but sturdy. There is an extension piece that allows you to adjust the size, which is awesome.
Both the bracelet and the charms are sterling silver, and you can tell the nice quality of the silver right away. AND, these charms were sodered onto the bracelet, which is so great! No worries that you will lose a charm because the little silver ring separates! Also, no worries about the joins catching on your sweaters!
These are classic gift items that allow you to easily add a personal touch! When I went to CharmFactory.com to see their selection - I was surprised to see the huge selection!
You can buy ready made bracelets with charms (like the heart one) or custom select your own, including a choice of bracelet styles. They can assemble them for you, or you can do it yourself.
You can tell that they know their business well given how many options are well presented on the website.
I'd definitely recommend them as a first stop if you are in the market to buy a charm bracelet!
And for those of you who love jewelry. . .
