Charming Bracelet

When I was growing up, my older sister (8 years older than me) had a charm bracelet. Every time we went to a new state or a national park Carmen got a new charm. She got charms for Sweet 16 and representing musicals she had been involved in. Her charm bracelet was full of memories. I used to love to sit and look through them and remember things. Her senior year (my 5th grade year) we had an exchange student from Finland. My parents bought Eva a charm bracelet representing her year here.

I was thrilled to have the opportunity to review a charm bracelet from The Charm Factory.

They let me pick out 8 charms. I'll tell you, it is hard to describe a life in 8 icons--especially with so many great choices!) I received a clasp bracelet with these charms (representing):
violin (Chewie); Firecrarcker (Crunchy); Tricycle (Munchie); flash camera (John); self control(what I'm working on); 40 (my birthday!); Matt 29:16 (my faith); and kissing (marriage).

The bracelet is beautiful! I love to swirl my hand and watch them move! The only complaint I have is I had a lot of trouble with the clasp. Even asking for help, it was a bit difficult to secure. (They do offer a magnetic clasp in addition to the lobster clasp.)

The Charm Factory is going to give one of you a chance to win a charm bracelet with your choice during my 40th Birthday Bash!

Here are some pictures. (Sorry, it's hard to take a picture of your wrist with a camera phone!)
