Charm Bracelets

Charm bracelets are, in a word, charming. You and your friends may wear them all the time, but have you ever wondered what all those charms mean and why they're considered lucky? Get your charm 411 right here!

Charm Bracelets - The History of Charms

Charm bracelets weren't always worn as a fashion statement. Back in the really olden days, people wore them to ward off evil spirits, protect them in battle and bring them luck - that's why charm bracelets are considered lucky! They only became trendy when Queen Victoria started wearing them in the 1800s and the European noble class copied her!

Charm Bracelets - The Meaning of Charms

Those charm pieces on your bracelet aren't just there to look pretty - each one has a meaning! Here's a quick lesson in charm school.

Charm Bracelets - The Charms in Lucky Charms

Did you know the makers of Lucky Charms cereal were inspired by charm bracelets? That's how those little marshmallow bits, or marbits as General Mills calls 'em, were created into shapes like blue moons, orange shooting stars, purple horseshoes, green leprechaun hats and yellow pots of gold! To keep you interested, the good folks at General Mills change up the "charms" pretty often, so don't be surprised when you find somethin' new in your Lucky Charms cereal one of these days! Many fashion brands like Juicy Couture and Betsey Johnson make totally funky bracelets with charms of hearts, keys, stars, crosses, tassels, crystal-studded trinkets and lots of other ornaments! And in recent years, swords, skulls and crossbones have made their way onto bracelets thanks to the box office success of all three Pirates of the Caribbean movies! Charm bracelets can be pretty expensive, so why not make your own? Just dig around in your jewelry box for pendants and trinkets and attach them to a plain bracelet (you may need some help from your mom). This is a great way to save money, as well as jazz up an old piece of jewelry. Another fun DIY idea is to make a cereal charm bracelet with Lucky Charms! With a needle and some strong thread, string your favorite Lucky Charms marshmallows together and tie it around your wrist. You probably won't be able to wear it for too long cuz you'll totally be tempted to eat it. After all, they're magically delicious!

I hate my school uniform! It's black and made of really thick material and the tie makes your neck all sweaty cos it's a dark red and ugh. You're not allowed coats either, not even in winter so it sucks when it's raining.
