The Latest Trends In Charm Bracelets

Charm bracelets have been a popular style of jewelry for women since the early 20th century. Today, the charm bracelet has taken a new twist, evolving into a more modern look and style. This modern piece of jewelry has captured the hearts of millions of women. There is a wide array of designs that can be made using the various clips, spacers, beads and charms.

The new trend in charm bracelets uses beads and charms that have a center hole. The hole allows you to string the beads onto a chain, forming a bracelet. You have the ability to design your own personal jewelry by adding the charms and beads of your choice. Today's charms are created to fit onto standard sized bracelets.

One of the fun ways to create a charm bracelet is as a personal life history. Choose beads and charms that represent the major events of life. These may include holidays, birthdays, vacations, marriage, birth and hobbies or sports. The result is a highly personal piece of jewelry that has special meaning to the wearer.

The modern trend with these bracelets allows you to add as many beads as you like. You can choose to have just several beads or charms or you may opt to fill the chain entirely. One of the best things about the bracelet is that you can add charms one at a time. It is fun to add items to your chain for special events in your life. This adds to the personalization of the piece.

Charms make perfect gifts for those who have a bracelet that they are creating. It is important to know the style and size of the bracelet before purchasing a bead, to ensure that it will fit with the chain. When adding beads and charms to the chain you can add spacer beads. These are smaller metal beads that often have carvings on them. They simply keep the beads from hitting into each other and help to showcase your special charms.

It's fun to design special charm bracelets as gifts. They make the perfect birthday, anniversary and holiday gifts. Choosing the special beads and charms to add to the bracelet shows that you know the person and have put effort and thought into creating a special keepsake gift for someone you care about. They also make the perfect gift for a young girl, who can add special beads for various milestones in her life.
