“Charms and bracelets are popular year after year for so many reasons. Not only it is a beautiful accessory, it’s one that will be cherished forever because the charms represent special people and unforgettable moments,” says Cristina Ehrlich, who was most re- cently named as one of the 25 Most Powerful Stylists in Hollywood by The Hollywood Reporter and Jimmy Choo. “Collecting charms can become a cherished tradition and a wonderful way to celebrate a woman’s life.” Ehrlich offers these tips for creating an unforgettable charm brace-
let for yourself or the special women in your life: * Create balance Charms and bracelets look best when they are grouped in odd numbers, such as three, fi ve or seven, which helps create balance. This is something to keep in mind when buying charms for yourself or someone else. Ehrlich suggests wearing an odd number of charm bracelets or layering them with other bracelets or bangles to achieve the same effect. * Celebrate what’s close to your heart Build a bracelet with charms for each of the important aspects
Charm bracelets are more popular than ever, gracing the pages of glossy fashion magazines and adorning the arms of women of all ages, yet charm bracelets are much more than a hot trend. The charm bracelet has a long history that makes it a timeless piece of jewelry and each woman’s charm collection is an expression of her personal style and her unique story.
of your life - signifi cant others, children, pets, etc. You might also consider selecting charms that have a personal meaning as a way to honor favorite memories such as graduations, vacations or an- niversaries. “I have started charm bracelets for some of my dearest friends,” says Ehrlich. “It’s a beautiful way to celebrate a friendship and commemorate special moments over the years.” * Add a splash of color Many sterling silver and 14K gold charms are available with colorful accents. Popular options include smoked quartz, bright enamels, pink sapphire, colorful cubic zirconia or Murano glass. “The same color does not need to be used throughout the entire bracelet,” Ehrlich adds. “But keeping your choices in the same color palette maximizes the aesthetic appeal.” * Don’t be afraid to mix it up Add a little variety by mixing in two-tone charms or charms with different fi nishes such as oxidized sterling silver or black rhodium. “Consider wearing a pendant as a charm,” suggests Ehrlich. “It’s a
Celebrating More Than Moms on Mother’s Day
Every spring individuals celebrate their mothers on Mother’s Day. It has evolved from a day to honor mothers to one that recognizes all special women. Therefore, if there is a woman in one’s life who isn’t a biological mother -- but special nonetheless -- Mother’s Day can be a time to tell her how much she is appreciated. There are many reasons a person may want to honor a woman that is not his or her mother. Perhaps the person’s own mother has passed away or is not prominent in this individual’s life. Maybe there is a grandmother or aunt with whom one is especially close. There may be a teacher or mentor that has touched the life of a person in a special way.
Although Mother’s Day is built around giving thanks to Mom, it’s certainly acceptable to thank women in addition to dear old Mom. Furthermore, one needn’t wait until a specifi c day in May to honor a notable woman. This can be done all year long with certain gestures and sentiments. For those who are celebrating all women on Mother’s Day, here are some ways to set the day apart.
* Create a handmade card with personalized sentiments that refl ect the unique relation- ship with this special woman. This can mean more than a prepurchased card that may not offer the right words. * Find out her interests and spend a day doing en- tirely what she wants to do. It doesn’t necessarily have to take place on Mother’s Day. A trip to a museum or a day at
