Space Your Charms Out Evenly
When you are planning your charm bracelet, you will want to ensure that you space the charms out evenly so that the bracelet is balanced. You will also want to make sure that you do not have too many charms on the bracelet, as it will look cluttered and can also be awkward. The last thing that you want is for one of your favourite charms to catch in a door or something else and get pulled off your bracelet. Make sure that the charms are not too close to the ends of the bracelet and spread them out evenly throughout the circumference.

 There are certain things that you will need to do to keep your charm bracelet from looking old and tired. Make sure that you do not wear it too much and take it off before going to sleep.
To clean your bracelet, you can use warm water and mild soap, and scrub it with a soft
toothbrush. You will also need a silver cloth to polish the bracelet and charms once you
have finished cleaning them. When you are not wearing it store your bracelet securely in a jewelry box, which will also help it to stop getting dusty.

A charm bracelet makes an excellent gift for any woman in your life, young or old, so you may even consider giving a blank bracelet as a gift and also include a gift certificate so they can buy charms for it themselves.
