Do you have any idea from the title of this blog what I’m about to talk about 🙂  Everyone loves charm bracelets, well that is most females do…LOL  That’s exactly what this blog is about, charm bracelets created with uniqueness from Creations by DreamLady.

I’ve been creating unique jewelry pieces for about six years now and over those years, I have acquired many extra charms and dangles from bead purchases that I just didn’t know what to do with.  I’d see beads that I wanted or needed for a braided bracelet or a guitar string bangle but those stains of beads that I just purchased also came with charms, that at the time I really didn’t need or know what to do with.  But of course, I bought the strain anyway and would just toss the charms in a container and push to the side.  Well after awhile, that container was overflowing and I knew I need to come up with something that I could use them on.  That’s when it hit me…a charm bracelet collection!!  And “Just Charming” came to life.

So for you ladies that have lots of extra charms & dangles just laying around…and you have no idea what in the world you’re going to do with them …well go buy you an expensive rope bracelet, a few charm holders and voila…you have a beautiful piece of jewelry with all your keepsakes and memories to wear and show off to your friends.

For the love of music and those that enjoy playing a guitar.  Whether you’re an advance player or just a beginner, the love you have for that instrument is the envy of many.  I, personally, grew up playing the piano but my brother…well he was the musical genus in the family.  He could pick up anything and play it…the saxophone, piano and yes, the guitar.  Playing an instrument of any kind and creating beautiful music is a gift…to some it comes so easy and to others, it takes years of practice but in the end, it gives enjoyment to so many. I saw a quote the other day, “Music is What Feelings Sound Like”…how true this is.

With the above in mind, I have a lot of friends that play the guitar and being the creative mind I am, I asked several what they did with their strings when they changed them out.  To my disbelief, they said they just discard them…throw them away, there’s no use for them…little did they know!!  Well I asked several to start saving those old strings for me…told them, “I think I can put them to good use”.  I got my first box of old guitar strings almost a year ago…not quite sure yet just how I was going to make this work but with determination and a “dreamer’s mind”…things just fell in place.

I took that box of strings, went through and pulled what I thought I could use, sterilized them and cleaned them up…and now I have a whole new line of recycled guitar string jewelry….from bangles, to rings, to earrings…and my fans love them!! I go to music festivals and craft fairs selling my jewelry and the response from my guitar collection is overwhelming…people just love it.

So to my fans and followers, remember those things that you see have no use for you anymore, may just be the perfect thing for someone else.  You know the old saying “What’s one person’s junk, is another person’s treasurer” …well that old saying does hold a lot of truth!!


















Happy Treasurer Hunting
