Thanks to the diverse offerings in charm jewelry, one bracelet can be trendy and casual with a downtown vibe, while another may be uptown and chic with an upscale aesthetic. Either way, you can create charm jewelry that sends the world a message about your sense of style.
If you want to create a casual yet well-designed bracelet, you can opt for a leather or cotton cord base. From there, you can add the charms, beads, spacers, and trinkets that have personal meaning to you. Maybe you have a favorite color or animal that you want to incorporate, or perhaps you want to add a peace symbol to your bracelet. You have the ultimate creative control.
If you are going for the casual downtown look, you can still have quality charms on a non-metal base. You want charms that will stand the test of time and you want beads that can be put on a different base in the future if desired. The downtown look is still classy in its own right, so it’s important to invest in durable parts with smart details. To get a casual vibe, you don’t want to skimp on quality, or you’ll get a cheap look. High-end wood beads will complete your jewelry.
If you like the finer things in life and you like uptown fashion, you can create a charm necklace or bracelet using a sterling silver or 14 karat gold base. The next step is to decide on an ensemble of little trinkets that will represent your personality and look upscale at the same time. You may want to look at photos of finished bracelets before deciding what’s right for you.
The uptown look can be created over time using a combination of 14 karat gold and Murano glass charms. While gold is certainly an investment, it also has lasting value and provides an uptown aesthetic. Fortunately, charms can be collected over time and do not have to be bought all at once, so your jewelry can be a work in progress as long as necessary. The fun is in the collecting.
By creating your jewelry one piece at a time, you’ll put together a look you love that’s more likely to stand the fashion test of time. Whether you’re look is decidedly downtown or distinctively uptown, you’ll create a piece that will match your particular taste level. You’ll end up with an item that’s all you and truly one-of-a-kind.
