Charm Factory Review & Giveaway - CLOSED -

Friday, November 20, 2009


I have always wanted to wear a charm bracelet since I was a teenager (which is a looooooong time ago ;p). I've seen it in the magazines and the thought of having several charms on a single bracelet really impress me. Now there are many cute charms variety on the market but I don't think no one beats the variety of charms that are available at Charm Factory.

Charm Factory has many (I mean really a lot) charms and beads options to choose from that you can attached to a sterling silver bracelet or necklace. For example, they have Alphabet beads, Message beads to Engraved charms, Baby charms, Profession charms, Animal charms and even colorful crystal charms. And that's not all! There are still many options to choose from. So if you want to have a ballet theme, a fashion & shopping theme, or a mix of everything that resembles your life or your loved one you can have it custom-made at Charm Factory. For you who doesn't want the hassle they also have a ready-made collections that you can buy and ready to ship.

At Charm Factory, charm bracelets are great accessories that help people express a little - or a lot - of who they are! Because you can custom-made your bracelet by choosing which charms or beads that you want. Angie from Charm Factory has kindly offered me to choose 8 charms for a custom charm bracelet, so I chose charms that really express who I am and what I love. After a hard time of choosing the charms (because they have so many pretty charms!) I finally come to a conclusion and here are my choices:

  1. The Pink Breast Cancer Awareness is to tell people that I'm supporting this cause because my mother is a breast cancer survivor.
  2. The Fairy charm is....well, everyone who really knows me would have nodded if they see this charm because they know that I love fairies and magical stories.
  3. The Green Peridot is the birth stone for August. I've been wanting a birth stone accessory for some time so this is my first birth stone jewelry, yeay!
  4. The big silver heart with birth stone on it. As a girly girl I love the shape of heart and having an additional birthstone wouldn't hurt either ;p
  5. Initial charm adorned with cubic zirconias. What can I say? I'm a bling-bling girl ;p
  6. Chocoholic charm. Nuff said! ^o^
  7. Silver Cat charm because I loooove cats! They're the cutest animal on the planet (along with dogs and panda ;p)
  8. I love to Shop charm. I don't think this one needs explanation -lol
There you go...I think I concluded my life in that charm bracelet. It came with an elegant white box like this:

That would make a perfect gift for anyone. You couldn't beat that "WOW!" feeling when you first opened the box and saw your sparkling pretty bracelet inside with all those enticing charms beautifully attached. And you have no idea how I love to wear it everywhere because it screams out my personality and people would adore it. I really love the quality of the bracelet. Each charm comes with a sterling silver jump ring (silver ring) that it used to attach the charms to the bracelet and it include a toggle clasp and a chain extender. I also admire the craftsmanship of each charm and according to the website each charm is .925 sterling silver, nickel and lead free.





At Charm factory they're not only offer charm bracelets and necklaces but also the tools & supplies as well as jewelry components for the jewelry designer, the hobbyist or the gift giver who loves to go that extra special length to make a gift truly personal. They also have other options of jewelry such as the Affirmation necklace with message rings or the Alphabet beads that used to create your very own personalized name necklaces or bracelets.
