CHARM BRACELETS--Forward by Preppy Handbook Author

Charm Bracelets is a wonderful book illustrating beautiful ideas for themed charm bracelets. The Forward is written by the author of the Preppy Handbook. I purchased this book for my mom for Christmas (found it on the sale rack at Barnes and Nobles). She has started gold charm bracelets for my daughters. My one daughter has a gold bracelet--started recently, a silver bracelet with charms I gave her for her Confirmation, a Tiffany charm bracelet with 2-3 silver charms and a Juicy Couture charm bracelet too. My other daughter has a gold bracelet--so far. Here are some other charm bracelets that I found on flickr.

Do you have a charm braelet and what types of charms are on it?

I do. A gold one. Started for me in 1968 by my dad. He traveled all the time so he started bringing me charms from places he worked. First charms I got were a gold basket from South Africa - filled with "flowers" which were rubies, emeralds, and blue sapphires. Also, a guard from London as in "changing of he guard". I love it.

I've had one since HS. All of the charms represent something special in my life. I haven't added any charms in quite some time, but I still cherish it as a reminder of my "youth".

I have a silver from when I was young, and a gold Juicy that my fiance bought me when I was confirmed as a Catholic on 2007. Now, he buys me a charm for every holiday. So great that your girls have them now. They can build them for years to come!
