Charm Factory review & giveaway ***CLOSED!!!***

Wow! What a busy week I've had! Today I get to give you my opinions about Charm Factory. Then, if you so choose, you may enter a giveaway by commenting on this post (after you read it, of course!) for a finished charm bracelet like the one they sent me!

First of all, let me say WOW at the assortment of charms they offer! They have everything! From fancy, to flashy, to funny (bacon? haha) , to contemporary, to Twilight inspired!!
Charm Factory is a website that specializes in charms, bracelets, stamps, tags, beads, and components. Charm Factory is your go-to for making and building your very own charm bracelet. You can also personalize your necklaces, bracelets and anklets with letter beads, and cute little charms. They have sterling silver, wooden, lead-free pewter. Best of all.. they offer free shipping on orders over 25$!!!

Since Charm Factory no longer offers a paper catalog (Just my opinion, a good thing. The environment.. just saying!) you can download a .pdf version of their catalog here. If you arent sure what you are browsing for.. thats especially helpful! Catalog CLICK HERE!

Let me tell you all about the kinda of charms they have.
I'm sure I will miss a few, because I am not sure if there is that much room on my blog!
When I picked out the extra charms that I bought, to add to what they sent me- I was a little overwhelmed. My advice? Just search for what is near and dear to your heart. Whether it be your dog (all breeds, they probably have. I saw quite a few.) or be it humpback whales (yes, I saw those too!) ...
OK, now heres some of the categories and links for you.

The CUTEST pendants, Gold plated, Lockets, Pewter beads, Pewter charms, Inspiring Affirmation rings, Awareness ribbons, and much more..
western, birthstone, military, travel & transportation, graduation, luck & money, sorority, any and ALL sports, think its not there? Please prove me wrong. (They even have team mom charms!) religious, careers, gardening, picture frames, music, band & dance, hearts, letters, sign language, hobbies, holidays, foods, all things family, messages, clothing, purses, shoes, crystal, enamel, (which I think are really cute & colorful), beachy, babies & lastly, animals & insects.
Dont forget my absolute FAVORITE category Pave. Pave basically means a a style of setting gems so closely that no metal shows. They are breathtaking!

WHEW! *wipes brow* That was a LOT!

This heart bracelet is what they sent me.

I added these charms to it. (below)




My finished bracelet looks like this

Entered by like-ing your FB page as well as theirs. I was already following you on twitter so I just followed them.

Now, if I had a bracelet, I would choose the peace one, and then add a love charm, a ribbon charm, a dolphin, turtle, wolf, whale, dragonfly, butterfly, cat, spider and elephant charm (as those are all the animals I love).
mmmm.... ok, i might eventually have to NOT pick some of those.... I would also love one that says thanks, hope and princess, an om sign, a .... I think I really need to stop now. If you want me to drown, then you could just tie this collection to me before you throw me in the river :)

PS - I think your photos are fine just the way they are. The only time I would put in less, is if you have something else to put in their place.

ALSO - your bracelet came out lovely. Mine apparently, would end up one swirling mess...
