Everybody knows that things of our youth that disappeared will come back one day or another. Sometimes modernized. But it can happen that the same thing is ‘reinvented’ again and becomes fashion. When I was about 5 years old, I got my parents a bracelet for my birthday. My grandparents gave me a ‘lucky’ charm for it. And on every suitable occasion, my bracelet grew.
But my eyes grew too when I saw the trend, new, and hot jewelry designs of this year… charms, and more charms. You might say that a charming charm is a joy forever and one charm will never die.
The funny thing about collecting them for my bracelet was that you could choose an applicable jewel for the situation. I had a hockey stick charm when I tried to master that sport and a new doggie meant a new ‘dog’ charm. I forgot why I had a ‘teapot’ charm, but it was lovely.
Preparing a blog post about these lovely pieces of jewelry I discovered that a charm bracelet is not invented in my youth. Back then it was also a reinvention from an earlier period.
