So many of us have charm bracelets that we have added to over the years. They are conversation pieces and your own ‘history’ right there on your wrist.

Unlike the keepsake bracelet of years past these necklaces are a more modern expression of who you are right now. You can buy them ‘loaded’ or make your own.
