TheCharmWorks blog posts to date have given you a shiny snap-shot of our stunning silver charms and charm bracelets, featuring some of our best selling items, along with new additions to our silver charms catalogue which growing by the day, affords our loyal customers more choice than ever!! Moreover, TheCharmWorks Design Team is hard at work to bring you the newest looks and combinations of charms and charm bracelets that will keep you looking fabulous every day, no matter the occasion.
This week, our dedicated design team are raving about a relatively new addition to TheCharmWorks family…our Charm Beads and Charm Bead Bracelets!! The buzz words among the designers are flexible-fabulous-fashion…and the key to our silver charm beads, crystal charm beads and enamel charm beads is just that…they are incredibly flexible…and can be added to your bracelet or taken off in an instant which allows you to create a multitude of different looks with one charm bead bracelet!!
Following the design team’s remit, I pulled together some of my favourite silver charm beads and crystal charm beads to create a beautiful Pretty in Pink charm bead bracelet combination that is simply stunning…! I think they work beautifully together as graded shades of pink, however if I was to wear this for a dinner with my in-laws, maybe I’d chose just the silver beads along with the lovely white crystal bead and similarly just chose the pretty ‘party’ pink beads for a night out with my ladies on the town! Whatever your fancy…there is no doubting the flexibility of these pieces of jewellery which not only make them amazing value for money but something that you will wear for more than one season.
Have a look at our amazing range of bead charms where you will also find glass charm beads, colourful glass bead charms and beautiful novelty bead charms. As always, please get in touch with your feedback!!!
Three or more years of study (and partying in equal measure); the first time living away from home; a real taste of independence; meeting the person we will go on to marry….our time at University has to be one of the most important milestones in our lives and one that has a profound effect on graduates and their friends and families alike. For many of us, the friendships we make in Freshers Week will carry us through to adulthood and beyond. Furthermore, the subjects and vocations that we ‘read’ will equip us with the knowledge and experience needed to go on and succeed professionally. Our time at University is life changing…and for this reason…graduation is well worth celebrating!
For most lucky graduates, their friends and families will be looking for a way to show their loved ones how proud they are on this special day by giving them a gift that is both fashionable and timeless. A sterling silver bracelet or sterling silver necklace with silver graduation charms is the ideal way to say “well done” at graduation. Below I have posted some of our most popular graduation charms to help you along the way with your choices. Why not try pairing a mortarboard charm with a diploma charm or depending on the graduate…one of our many champagne charms, congratulations charms or key charms!!
The graduation ceremony itself is highly symbolic, marking the beginning of a new era for new graduates with the start of their careers and professions. The design team here at TheCharmWorks thinks that representing this life altering change by adding a personalised and individual profession charm to the graduation bracelet would be a beautiful and poignant way for you to show your loved one your support in their new professional endeavours!! I’ve just picked out a few of our most popular job charms to give you an idea; our doctor charm, accountant and finance charm, lawyer charm, teacher charm, fashion charm and artist charm!
There are of course many other professions and jobs that could be represented on your graduation charm bracelet!! Have a look at our occupation category on the website and get creative. We have a charm for every occasion! Happy hunting…and for all the graduates this summer…CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!
It would be easy to forget that Easter is almost upon us as the whole country seems to be gripped by Royal Wedding Fever…and The CharmWorks is no exception! For lots of our customers, this will probably be the first big Royal Wedding in living memory…taking into account that you’d probably have to be about 32 to have remembered Princess Diana’s wedding day and her iconic wedding dress ! Here at The CharmWorks we unashamedly rejoice in the nostalgia, joy and everlasting memories that weddings evoke and we are extremely proud that our silver charms and silver charm bracelets lovingly accompany countless brides, bridesmaids, flower girls and their loved ones every year on their wedding days…what a privilege!
For this reason we are utterly ‘charm’ed by Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding next week and in recognition, we will be waving the flag this April 29th by adding our Union Jack hanging and bead charms to our silver charm bracelets, along with our awesome Great Britain charm to show the future King and Queen that the whole country is behind them ! You can do the same…check out what we have and let us know which are your favourites!
The very nature of charm bracelets means that anyone who loves to collect trinkets to commemorate a special occasion, loves the idea of doing so by adding a beautiful sterling silver charm to their bracelet. Why not have a look at our more elegant royal charms to commemorate the Royal wedding…which include a wide range of crown charms and tiara charms, as well as other novel designs, such as the Royal Throne charm, the Tower of London charm, the Royal Corgi charm or even our adorable Queen’s Grenadier charm!!!
Who knows…maybe after the wedding we could get a Kate Middleton Royal Wedding Dress Charm!! We are all hoping that it would be an elegant, fashionable charm that would wow all fashion-istas out there…but I guess we will have to be patient and wait and see! Let us know what you get up to on April 29th and which charms you chose to commemorate the day.
…until next time!!
Well, if you are anything like us you, you’ll be loving the longer days and warmer temperatures. After such a long and bitter winter for many, who could be blamed for letting the sun go to their head a little and try to kid themselves summer has begun?! Ok, so whilst summer may still be a little while off there really is a lot to celebrate right now! The blossom is on the trees, the daffodils are out, the clocks are about to change and the Easter holidays are tantalisingly close now…
So just a little reminder – don’t forget Mothers Day next week! The tradition of celebrating motherhood and mum’s is one that can be traced all the way back to the Ancient Greeks and Romans and is equally important today. It’s a great time to take a moment as a family and appreciate all that our mum’s do for us – and say thank you to them for all their hard work, love and support. If you are stuck for gift ideas, what about one of our great Mother charm pendants on a necklace or with a charm bracelet? We have a great range including a filigree heart design, a ‘Special Mum” charm and a mother and daughter charm which can be divided between two chains or bracelets or both parts worn on one.
We also have a wonderful selection of Easter Charms. Perhaps you are watching the calories this year, have a Spring chicken’s birthday or simply want a keepsake to mark a special Easter ahead. Well, you are in the right place and our range includes a range of Easter bunnies including this little cutie sorting the eggs in his basket and this little chap eagerly running to get all his eggs delivered on time. We also stock several easter eggs charms including a gorgeous pink crystal charm, which is a lovely way to add some colour and sparkle to a bracelet.
Of course, Easter also means another special date this year – the Royal wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton. Well, we all love a good wedding and this one is on another level and looks certain to be the next biggest union since Charles and Diana! We have a wonderful selection of royal charms available and these could be the perfect way to mark the happy day and remember a holiday in London. We particularly like our sceptre charm and our bead Crown, which threads through a bead bracelet rather than attaching to a traditional charm bracelet with a jump or split ring.
Don’t forget to change your clock forward an hour this Sunday!
Love from The Charm Works
So firstly, we should apologise for the long delay in bringing your our first blog…here at The Charm Works we have been busy little beavers with the on-going task of the redesign of our website. We hope that our revamp meets with your approval and makes finding the perfect sterling silver charms, charm bracelets and chains easier than ever.
Extra features will be coming shortly, including our Bracelet Builder. We aim to help achieve the perfect personalised look and finish to your charm bracelet by allowing you to build virtual charm bracelets before purchasing. Our bracelet builder allows you to browse all the sterling silver bracelets and charms in our collection and then add the selected charm(s) to your bracelet in the location of your choice. A charm bracelet should be a very personal piece of jewellery and reflect personality, character and the things we hold dearest; we hope this design function will assist, enabling you to get the finished sterling silver charm bracelet just right – be it a gift for a loved one or a special (and well-deserved) treat for yourself.
Some of our more regular customers may have noticed another change here at The Charm Works – the introduction of our sterling silver bead bracelet and bead charm range. If you haven’t had a chance to check it our, why not browse the range now? Our collection is proving very popular and provides a very contemporary take on the traditional charm bracelet. For those of you who are not familiar with bead bracelets or are not sure of the difference, a bead charm threads through the bracelet, whereas a traditional charm is joined onto the bracelet itself with either a jump or a split ring. For more information, please follow this link.
Whilst we are very pleased with the changes and new aspects of The Charm Works, there are some things that will never change. We take customer satisfaction very seriously and always try to go the extra mile to make things that bit simpler for you. If you have a special request, there is something you need assistance with or you have some feedback for us please do not hesitate to contact us. We can be reached via Live Chat or telephone (during office hours, 9.30 – 5.30 UK time Monday to Friday) or drop us a line by email.
So if you’ve made it this far, thanks for reading. We promise our next blog won’t be so long in coming and we’ll be making blog posts a little more regularly from now on!
