Starting a charm bracelet ...
It's very easy to start creating your own european style charm bracelet. One of the most important facts about creating charm bracelets is that there are no rules! The idea behind your charm bracelet can be just as unique as you are - so let your creativity flow!
Some people get all the bracelet beads at once, some start with 1 or 2 beads and add more charms as life goes on. If you're creating charm bracelet for fashion reasons, your bead choices will probably be based mostly on colors. If you're creating a "life experience" bracelet that tells a story of your life - then most of your charms will be representing things you like and people you met during your lifelong journey. If you are a young teenager - your bracelet would probably consist of beads representing parents, best friends, school & graduation as well as zodiac symbols and birthstones.
It is easy to come up with meaningful gifts for your friends and family - just think of what they like and there always a charm bead representing that! Possibilities are endless - so feel free to experiment!
How to get started...
1) Measure your wrist
and add an inch (to allow for the beads).
2) Choose your starter bracelet

If you have a bracelet with the two clip spots, our charms will fit onto your bracelet. You may also want to choose two clip locks to divide your bracelet into three sections. This ensures there will always be beads on top of your wrist as you move.
3) Screw charms on
(if charms are threaded) or just put them on (if they are not threaded) to create your arrangement.
Open clip lock with your fingernail and close it over clip spot (if any).
6) Close snap clasp when you are done.
There's no limit to themes and style. Fill your bracelet to the brim, or start with a single bead and collect over time from our ever-expanding collection.
