The 4th July celebrates the Declaration of Independence on July 4th 1776 the date when the United States of America officially separated from Great Britain, this day is now formally known as Independence Day. The first public celebrations began in 1804 at the White House, however today it is a nationwide event of picnics and patriotic parades, evenings of fireworks and a reason to fly the American Flag.
Even though we may be 3000 miles across the water from America that is no reason for us not to celebrate! Whether it be with a picnic, fair or BBQ with the lovely weather recently we think any excuse to be outside in the sunshine is a good one.
We hope you all have a lovely day and rest of the weekend. We had to share some of our favourite American themed charms with you. How cool is this cowboy charm?!

We have been super excited here at TheCharmWorks and it’s all down to dinosaurs! Not just the release of the new Jurassic World movie but also due to our brand new 3D dinosaur charms! We think that everyone needs at least one dinosaur charm on their bracelet and with our new range you have no excuse not to get your hands on one. Don’t have a charm bracelet? Then not to worry our dinosaurs look just as great on a chain and worn as a necklace.
We all love dinosaurs! But why? Dinosaurs have that constant element of fascination as none of us have ever had the chance to encounter them and never will. Big ones, scary ones, flying ones! These huge dangerous reptiles were the only ones around 65 million years ago so pretty much got to do what they wanted. Or maybe it’s because they leave amazing skeletons behind that have allowed us to recreate and imagine what they would have actually looked like.
As we will never have the opportunity to experience a real life dinosaur we have provided you with the next best thing these brilliant dinosaur charms! Which one is your favourite?

Struggling for ideas for a group presents? You all have different ideas? We have the perfect answer – a beautiful bespoke personalised TheCharmWorks bracelet!
The pictures below are a recent bracelet we sent out and we love the story behind it so we thought we would share it with you all. The bracelet was a gift for a bride to be from her hen party. Each hen chose a different charm which related to their friendship with the bride. This helped to create such a beautiful bracelet that was not only filled with memories from all those closest to her but also can now truly be cherished as a reminder of the big day.
The beauty of the whole thing was that even though not everyone knew each other it was quick and easy to arrange, everyone was informed of the idea and asked to add a charm. Each hen gave us a call here at TheCharmWorks and we were able to quickly add all the charms onto the order and make sure nobody was forgotten before assembling the whole bracelet!
We love the selection of different charms. Which is your favourite? Need help organising the perfect present? Then get in contact with us here at TheCharmWorks and we will be more than happy to help!

Happy St George’s Day to all of our readers! Today we celebrate the patron Saint of England and we definitely think it should be a Bank Holiday as with St Patrick’s Day in Ireland! St George was a Roman soldier who protested against the torture of Christian’s and was beheaded after showing incredible courage and faith in his beliefs . St George’s emblem the red cross with the white background is more recognisable as the British flag. It was originally adopted by Richard The Lion Heart as the king’s soldiers wore it on their tunics to avoid confusion in battle. Although unlikely we still like to believe that Saint George really did fight a dragon and continue to remember him along with the rest of the world as the dragon-slaying patron Saint of England.
For the majority of you like us St George’s Day is just another ordinary working day however there is always an excuse to treat yourself or a loved one to a new charm….St George style!
And just in case you were wondering St George is also the patron saint of Aragon, Catalonia, England, Ethiopia, Georgia, Greece, Lithuania, Palestine, Portugal, and Russia, as well as the cities of Amersfoort, Beirut, Bteghrine, Cáceres, Ferrara, Freiburg, Genoa, Ljubljana, Gozo, Pomorie, Qormi, Lod and Moscow.
