Review: Charm Factory

I don't know if I've mentioned this here before, but I actually got into review blogging through reading other people's reviews and entering LOTS of giveaways.  And I had pretty good luck with the giveaways- winning lots of fun things for our home. Lately I haven't been entering too many, but when I saw a giveaway over at A Frugal Life for a charm bracelet from Charm Factory, I had to enter. I've always dreamed of having a beautiful charm bracelet-it just seems so classic and feminine.

The great news is- I won the giveaway! I got to choose 8 charms for my bracelet and had a wonderful time browsing through the gigantic assortment of options at Charm Factory.  They have charms for animals, for babies, charms with phrases and words, hobby charms, office charms, travel charms.. to name just a few. Seriously, if there's something that's important in your life, there is a charm to represent it here.

I chose charms to represent things that are important in my life right now.  My husband is Chinese, so I chose the Chinese symbol for happiness for one of the charms.

Another choice was this beautiful spiral charm with one of my favorite Bible verses on it.

I also got this gorgeous heart box charm to represent my marriage.

And I chose charms to represent my kids as well. So many great options, it was so hard to choose!

I'm really impressed with my bracelet. All the charms are nice, solid silver charms. This is not a cheap piece of jewelry by any means. It's something that I am going to love wearing and will be able to pass down to Vivian someday.  I also love that the charms at Charm Factory are really affordable, so my husband will be able to visit the site and pick out charms to add to my bracelet, instead of buying jewelry or other gifts that I might not like. This is going to be a great thing for him, no more trying to figure out what is a good present for me!

If you've been dreaming of a charm bracelet, visit Charm Factory and see all the things they have to offer!
