Holiday Gift Guide: Charm Factory (review/giveaway)






I don't wear too much jewelry, mostly because I'm not a fancy kind of girl. I have found one article of jewelry that I love to wear, because I made it personal, and it now means a lot to me. It's a charm bracelet from Charm Factory.




I was told I could pick 8 charms for my bracelet to review, here are the charms I chose and why (in no particular order):


3 Baby Shoe Charms - There is 1 shoe for each of my kids, and each shoe as one of their birthstones in it. The Baby Shoe Charm shown here is for February which is Jeffery's birthstone, I also have September for Jaylin and May for Jaxon.



1 Chinese Character for Family - My family means the most to me, I had to have something  to represent that, plus I love Chinese characters.



1 Chinese Character for Love - I love my husband and my kids.



1 Baby Feet Heart Charm - My kids walk all over my heart, they are awesome like that!



1 Personalized Birthstone Heart - I put mine and Jeff's birthstones in it (so pink and white) for our union together as a married couple.



1 Silver Angel Charm with Topaz Glass Bead - This one means a LOT to me, this is Nanny's birthstone (November)and is a representation of her as an angel.


I love my bracelet, the charms are all beautiful, and Charm Factory made it look beautiful by placing the charms perfectly, the shoes aren't beside each other, and the Chinese characters are on opposite ends of the bracelet. I think it's awesome that once we have another baby, I can always order another shoe charm with the new baby's birthstone (trust me, not going to be anytime soon though lol) I also have to mention 2 other charms. I got a insert when I got my bracelet with their new charms and one of them is one I WANT! It's the "I Love to Blog" charm and I so need it! The other one is for my friend Christine over at Live Laugh Love Bloggings, she is a Thyroid Cancer survivor (she truly is amazing!), she talked to Charm Factory about making a Thyroid Cancer Awareness charm, and guess what...THEY DID! I remember chatting with her when she got the charm, she was thrilled about it! It really is a beautiful charm!




Great gift for any mom, grandma, aunt, sister or daughter!
