We go to work, school, or in some cases, both every day and it isn’t often that we get the chance to express ourselves. There are dress codes and rules that we simply must abide by to be functioning members of society. People are always looking for little ways to show off a tiny piece of themselves. It might be attaching a satirical pin to one’s purse, or wearing fun and funky jewelry to a workplace where you’re required to wear all black. There are so many ways to express oneself, but one of the oldest and most beloved ways for a woman to truly show off who she is – the charm bracelet. Charm bracelets are not a new thing. They’ve been around since before we were children and they will continue to be worn by women. However, times are changing and so is the time bracelet.
The typical charm bracelet that you think of has a gold or silver chain, with small charms hanging from it. The charms are made of the same metal as the bracelet and this bracelet’s classic style can go with just about any outfit. While timeless in their beauty, they do tend to get in the way. They get stuck on things such as your shirt and coat sleeves, or in your gloves. They can also get stuck in your hair. Sometimes those delicate charms even fall off of the loops they come on. Recently changes have come to the charm industry. While you can certainly still purchase a classic charm bracelet, there is a new charm bracelet on the market and it’s making waves.
Beaded charm bracelets are much more durable and hold up better against the more traditional charm bracelet. They come on a gold or silver band, or a leather strap and their clips keep charms and beads from falling off. The charms are attached to beads, rather than dainty loops that often break and cause the wearer to lose the attached charm. Just because they’re attached to a bead, doesn’t mean you can’t find a wide variety of them. There are charms for any occasion.
