My charm collecting started kind of differently.
My mother started selling charms on eBay and got me into it as well. At
first I just sold them and didn't think much about it at all. But then I
started coming across charms that just spoke to me. The charms I like are
often not the rarest or more interesting, but they say something to me or
about me. The curse had struck and I started making bracelets.
I currently have three bracelets that I wear.
A personal bracelet, a Victoria bracelet (I'll explain below), and a
vintage travel bracelet. I switch between them depending on my mood but
generally, I have one of them on when I leave the house. Quite strange for
a girl who never wore much jewelry.
I started out with the personal bracelet. It
started when my mother bought me a bracelet to take apart. I loved the
simple curb link style and it had a church with the name 'Scott' on it,
already soldered on. Well, my last name is Scott and my grandfather was
Anglican clergy. It was all too serendipitous to pass up, I started
searching for more about me.
Now, because I assume you would not have read
this far if you weren't interested, I am going to explain my bracelets. I
think they say more 'About Me' than words ever could.

(just click on the link). Despite the name, I really only have vintage
charms and not many books. I have at least one hundred charms listed
between my store and active auctions at all times.

assorted other collectibles), check out her eBay id,

My Personal Bracelet
My Victoria Bracelet
don't imagine the individual charms need much of an explanation on this
bracelet. The reason I made it, on the other hand, probably could use some
explaining. It all started when I was little.
Do you remember when you were
young and everyone would get things with their names on? We search all
over for things that said 'Victoria' but there weren't really any. My mom
could find things in England for me (I have lots of Victoria Station
stickers and plaques) but where were lived, all I could find was Vicky. My
aunt was Vicky, I was not. It used to really bother me and I would check
every time I saw anything with names on them.
Fast forward twenty plus years
and I've become addicted to charms. And guess what? I have one of the few
names that can be found on a ton of charms. So, while I still have
problems getting Victoria pencils and stickers, I have a whole charm
bracelet and that more than makes up for it. ;)
