brighton charm bracelet


Last Christmas, I was puzzled about what to get my mom for a gift.  I remembered that she mentioned having a charm bracelet as a girl, and she didn’t know what happened to it.  So I went downtown to a little boutique, and I bought her a Brighton bracelet with three charms to start: her birthstone, a bead that said “grandmother” on it from her new grandson, and a fleur de lis in honor of her 2011 trip to France.

On Valentine’s Day, a Brighton bracelet landed onto my wrist.  My mom wanted to share in charm-gathering.

Brighton has a cool website where you can play around with Charm Builder, making “dream" bracelets.  I just designed this one, with mostly beads and a floral theme:

And then I chose beads and charms for a Christmas bracelet:

Just to show you, there are many different charm ideas like sports, hobbies, U.S. states, letters, even  tiny little picture frames:

And a look at my real bracelet:

Brighton is more affordable than Pandora or Chamilia.  And no, they’re not sponsoring me to write this, I just thought you might need a Christmas idea for the women in your life!

  1. What a great idea! Once upon a time I worked for an office who gave us a choice for Christmas: a Brighton gift certificate or a massage gift certificate. I chose the massage and totally regret it! I will have to keep this in mind for me AND my mom! - Brianna
