Charm bracelets.... as a child I envied my Mama Jayne's. I loved the sound, & all the tiny little treasures.I wanted one of my own, but only got the costume jewelry ones, you know the ones, they always had a ballerina in the middle whose head was a pearl.It never ended well w/ those. I always managed to twist the head off making her twirl. In my 20's I shopped a local flea market that had booth w/ coins & silver charms. Cigar boxes full of charms from gutted bracelets of yesterday. I still didn't have my bracelet though, so the charms stayed in the cigar boxes. Finally one Christmas I got my bracelet! Suddenly everyone I knew was going someplace where they would bring me back charms. I even got several doubles from 2 different European travelers. I went crazy @ the flea market. Soon my bracelet was full, overloaded even. I found another chain & restrung my single bracelet into 2. I did it right ,sterling split rings & a sort of organization between them, (romance & travel, in case you were wondering).I think because I wanted a charm bracelet for so long, I make them. Years ago, after a reunion w/ a friend I hadn't seen in too long, bracelets were made to observe the occasion. I made charms for both of us,not always matching but complimentary, & strung them w/ a beaded bracelet. I continue to make bracelets like this, as well as the more traditional charm from chain style
