Charm bracelets can tell truly charming stories about your life, your interests, and your dreams. That’s why we’re so excited for Sunday! Sunday February 26th is Tell a Fairy Tale Day. What can you do to make this magical holiday even more special? Tell a Fairy Tale Day is a great opportunity to sit down and read to your kids. But if the kids aren’t around… there’s nothing wrong with reading some fairy tales on your own! Everybody loves a good story with a happy ending. (The Knight in Shining Armor doesn’t hurt, either!)
And that’s the thing… Tell a Fairy Tale Day is important because it reminds us that even the most upsetting situations can always come to a happy ending. There’s nothing better than a good story that ends with the words, “…and they lived happily ever after.” On Tell a Fairy Tale Day, take a look at the charm bracelet that tells your personal story. There may have been some bumps along the road, but all of the charms on your bracelet represent something that makes you truly unique!
Is there a woman in your life that inspires you to tell a story? While you’re thinking about happy endings on Tell a Fairy Tale Day, keep our Inspirational Women contest in mind! Tell us a story about an inspiring woman, and you could win up to $150 worth of charms from Classic Charms.
Start telling those stories, charmers! Every woman has her own unique fairy tale to tell—and charm bracelets can help paint a truly “happily ever after” picture.
Here at Classic Charms, we love hearing about the stories that inspire your life. After all, the perfect charm bracelet is the perfect way to show the world where you’ve been and what makes you who you are. That’s why we’re going to celebrate International Women’s Day in style. International Women’s Day is March 8th, and it’s a day to celebrate and honor the great strides that women have made over the past century. As women, we’ve really come quite a long way! In the past 100 years, we’ve gotten the right to vote, and more and more of us are becoming powerful players in the business world—all while maintaining the home front. In celebration of the wonder that is “woman,” we invite you to share the story of a woman that truly inspires you.
Classic Charms International Women’s Day Story Contest
Tell us a story about a woman who is inspiring—this can be you or someone else. Women can do amazing things, and we want to hear about it! We believe that charms can tell any story, so use charms from our site (give us the item numbers, please!) to enhance your storytelling. If we think your story is the most inspiring, you’ll win a charm bracelet and the charms that you used to tell your story—up to a $150 value! The charms must be from our sterling silver charms collection.
We’ll announce the winner of the Classic Charms International Women’s Day story contest will be announced on March 8th.
Send your stories to firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll be waiting for your charming inspiration!
Last month we asked all of our Facebook friends and fans to share their holiday tradition stories with us. We got an overwhelming amount of great responses! It’s so nice to hear how people celebrate the holidays with their family. We spend so much time working on making sure we have the perfect 14K gold and silver charms for you, and it’s nice to see how you put them to use. After all, charm bracelets are a great way to keep those holiday memories alive all year long.
As promised, here’s our winning holiday tradition story. It comes to us from Joan Sapienza. Thanks for sharing your story with us, Joan! Congratulations on winning the gorgeous family bead. And we’d like to thank everyone else that shared their holiday traditions with Classic Charms. With so many great entries, it really was tough to choose a winner.
Start your own unique holiday traditions, too!
Joan’s Holiday Tradition
My favorite holiday tradition began 15 or 16 years ago. My large family (4 brothers, 5 sisters, both parents alive at the time, many nieces and nephews) always gets together Christmas Eve. It is the only holiday where we all manage (barring illness or call of duty for our military/police/fire dept members) to get together. It is a very busy, hectic time with lots of food and many presents for all.
My sister was busy in the days before with buying, wrapping and sorting all kinds of gifts. She was also telling her young son (he was about 3 at the time) the Christmas story of Jesus. He, in his innocence, asked “If it is Jesus’ birthday why doesn’t he get any gifts?” She was taken aback, but then asked what he would like to give Jesus. He had a small starfish that he had gotten earlier that year while they were on vacation. They wrapped the starfish up and then a family debate began as to how to get the present to Jesus. The idea was presented to send it to him via a balloon.
So, Christmas Eve after Mass, we all gathered outside with the starfish tied to a balloon and gave each child present another balloon and we sang “Happy Birthday” to Jesus as loud as we could and then released the balloons. Every year since then we have continued the singing and balloon send off. The young boy who first thought of the idea is now a college freshman. We started out needing only about a dozen balloons, but are up to almost 3 dozen now! Even the neighbors join in our tribute. It is a wonderful tradition and one I hope continues for all time!
Thanks for allowing me the opportunity to share this tradition with you.

There is no better time to remember what is so important about family than the month of November. Thanksgiving brings the family together for one big happy meal – soon you’ll all be together again for Christmas. In the meantime there are so many family traditions in between the two holidays. Here’s a few of our favorite traditions:
Prepping for Thanksgiving Dinner – More than the meal, it’s getting the meal ready that’s the most fun for some families. From setting the table to basting the turkey, there’s something for everyone – it brings the whole family together!
Black Friday sales – will the whole family be waiting outside the store at 4 a.m. sharing hot cocoa?
Christmas shopping as a family! It’s so much fun because you get to sneak around the mall, buying gifts for each other -all while trying to hide from each other!
Opening up presents! There are so many Christmas joys on the morning of the 25th – one is getting to unwrap your presents and the second is seeing people unwrap the beautiful charms and beads you’ve given them!
We’d like to know your favorite Holiday Traditions – both traditional and unconventional! Email us at mail us at email@example.com with your favorite Holiday Traditions by November 30th for a chance to win a Family Bead (valued at $40).

Every day we hear from our loyal customers about what their charm purchases mean to them and why they purchased them. This email came from a customer, detailing what her purchases meant to her.
I just had to let you know that I received the last several charms I ordered, among them the flute, trumpet, engraved “You’ve got Mail“, laptop, the painting and plumbing tools. Every one of them are SO detailed, and so exquisite in their representations (and the remembrances they will represent). Also several of the charms I bought will go on either a bracelet or on the small, lobster claw clasped drawstring to put charms on a cell phone.
The ones for the cell phone, which will be a gift from me will include the flute (representing me), the trumpet (representing a significant other), the laptop and engraved “You’ve Got Mail” charm. I recently got back in touch with my “first kiss boyfriend” and we started our communications via email. If ever someone tells you that dreams do not come true, you can tell them that you know of someone whose dreams have come true! I lost my husband of 32 years a little over three years ago, and never thought I would be blessed with those feelings again. To have another life begin at the age of 56 is another dream come true, and it is well-represented by the Rembrandt charms you have provided me.
I do not usually leave “comments” about purchases, but I had to let you know how pleased I am by all the charms I have purchased from Classic Charms – the painter’s set, the plumber’s set, the peanut and squirrel, etc. Those charms will be on a charm bracelet I received from my parents when I turned 16, and I will be giving it and the new charms to my daughter on her 30th birthday. Thank you for such beautiful pieces!
