{charm factory} review + giveaway


I was so excited to be given the opportunity to review a charm bracelet from the Charm Factory! When I was younger, my parents gave me a charm bracelet - and I would receive new charms on birthdays, holidays, and milestones. I really treasure that bracelet, but now I am able to customize a charm bracelet that reflects who & where I am today! My bracelet came packaged in a white gift box - with my charms already put on the bracelet! {yay! no broken nails trying to get the charms on!}

I was able to choose 8 charms - and here's what I picked!
( fancy cross, republican symbol, bundt pan, letter c, alphabet blocks, florida map, daddy's girl, & big sis in heart )


I am very impressed with the quality of the bracelet itself and the charms! Really - it all exceeded my expectations. All of the charms have a "good weight" to them. Not heavy - but you can just tell that the charms are solid.

The Charm Factory specializes in sterling silver. No lead or nickel. No cost for shipping! (no matter how much...or how little you purchase). And, I bet you'd figure that since the shipping is free, it will take a while to receive your bracelet. Let me tell you, the shipping was so fast! I got mine in just a few days!

And, they don't just sell charm bracelets! There is a large selection of beads, rings, and more!

And - what I really love is that everything they sell is made in the United States
