I love my charm bracelet! I started it about twenty years ago. It has charms from all over the world. Where I've been, where my friends have been. Some of the charms reflect my hobbies, interests and that of my family members too.
I think that it is probably pretty old... maybe from the fifties... The charms are very sweet and actually have moving parts.
The wheels on the train actually spin, there is a tiny little pocket knife that the blade folds out, the doctors bag opens, the tire pump works, the steno pad has several silver pages, The little step ladder says "step up to my heart".
Both of the articles below are interesting and shed light on why and when we decided they were must- have items.
