CHARM FACTORY Review & Giveaway:CLOSED!

CONTEST CLOSED!












Liz and I discovered the amazing Charm Factory not so long ago and fell in lust love with their myriad of charms, beads, rings, and... well, everything!

We literally spent hours clicking thru their pages, oohing and ahhing over the gorgeous charms.

Who doesn't love a charm bracelet?
It's such a personal thing... you choose the charms that best fit you and what's happening in your life.


There is no better place on-line to design a piece of jewelry that is so deeply personal, so true to your feelings than the Charm Factory.

I choose the Breast Cancer Awareness Bracelet as a way to show my support of Breast Cancer Awareness and Research. It's beautiful. It truly is an honour to wear it.




Breast Cancer Bracelet: CFCB5
Show your support for Breast Cancer Awareness with this distinctive and inspirational sterling silver Breast Cancer Bracelet. This awareness bracelet sends an unmistakable support message and comes with 5 Breast Cancer Pink enameled Survivor ribbons. The striking foundational bracelet, crafted from .925 sterling silver with figure 8 links and a strong lobster clasp, is designed to last a lifetime.


For Liz, I chose the Graduation Bracelet. Can you believe it? My baby girl graduates from high school next Friday night! This bracelet is perfect for the high school or college grad.










Three charms have the words: Aspire, Dream, Succeed, there is also a Cap (Mortar Board) and tassle, and a 2010 charm! Your graduate will love it!

Graduation Bracelet: CFCB4
When you present this adorable sterling silver Graduation Bracelet, you, with no doubt, give the gift of delightful remembrance. It's the perfect gift for the new graduate of any grade or college level. Our gorgeous sterling silver Graduation Charm Bracelet is a wonderful way to acknowledge and honour deserved graduation achievements.


In honour of the wildly popular Stephanie Meyer books, Charm Factory has a whole line of charms dedicated to the Twilight series!





They have charms that say Team Edward, Bite Me (love it!), the new QUEEN Chess Piece and many more! The Charm Factory offers Beads, Bracelets, Sterling Silver Charms, Rings, and Chains, as well as Jewelry components, Lockets, Awareness Ribbons, Pendants and more! It is a fabulous one-stop-shop for all of your Charm Jewelry wants and needs!
