TBT // link charm bracelets

Hey Babes!

The other day on Facebook, an ad for an event came up on my newsfeed, and I suddenly felt really old. The event? A 2000’s party. What? I can’t believe the decade I grew up in is already so in the past that they’re making themed events for it. The thing is, you can celebrate and dress for a time period all you want, but you’ll never REALLY understand it unless you grew up in it. With that being said, a 2000’s party actually sounds pretty rad, because I can relive my childhood. Things like Dunkaroos, Tomagotchi’s, and one of my favorites: the link charm bracelet.

I don’t actually know the real name for these bracelets, but you can see an example in the picture down below.

It may look like a plain, silver bracelet, but, there’s a fun twist to it. You can personalize your charm bracelet by purchasing different charms, which are basically just another link to the bracelet except with a fun design.

From animals, to letters, to sports, there’s a charm out there for everyone. I remember my bracelet had my name on it, along with a pair of batons, (because I was a baton twirler back in the day), and a couple of other things. My grandmother had the watch version of this bracelet, and it had her name as well, along with a cowboy boot and some other things. I happen to still have my bracelet and my grandma’s watch, so when I find them, I will update this post with a picture.

Back in the day, you could find these bracelets and assorted charms EVERYWHERE. I remember when I was younger there was a store called ‘Crafts’n’Stuff’ that had a huge selection of different charms. I used to love looking at them and would pick out all the ones I wanted. Nowadays, these are pretty sparse, but you can find some on Amazon, or a site called ItalianCharms.

 

If you had a bracelet like this, what charms were on yours? If you didn’t, what charms would you put on it? Let me know in the comments!

 

dress well. eat well. live well.
