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).

College was a simpler, happier time when you’d watch football games bundled up under blankets on a cold seat – not on a couch. Your biggest concern was passing the big test – not making it to through the work week. Recall all the great times with bracelets full of that old college charm with our college beads and crystal beads collections. There are so many different combinations to create with a college bead bracelet. It all depends on your school spirit!
- Incorporate your graduation year with number beads. If you went back for your masters or doctorate you can include both graduation years, spaced apart on opposite side of the bracelet.
- Be flashy! Show off your alma mater colors with a mix of our Swarovski Crystal school colors beads along with other collegiate beads. Choose just a pair of the colored beads for a simple bracelet that can be worn any day. That’s alma mater pride everyday!
- Go all out with school spirit by putting together a bracelet with your graduation year, school colors, and collegiate logo. There’s no such thing as too much pride!
Check out the complete collegiate beads selection with beads from Texas, Florida and Pennsylvania colleges and other universities. Find out if your alma mater is part of our Collegiate Bead Collection – they fit Pandora bracelets as well - it’s 100 strong!

There’s a special woman in every person’s life. One who does so much for you, goes above and beyond and is always thinking of you. Whether it’s your dear own Mother who always calls to remind you to pick up milk, your kind Mother in law who had regular lunches with you, or your sweet Grandmother who still hand crafts you presents for birthdays and holidays, all Mothers are important and worth recognizing on more than Mother’s Day. Why there’s also Grandparent’s Day the first Sunday after Labor Day, and Mother’s in Law day which is coming up the fourth Sunday of October, this Sunday in fact!
So how do you thank these Super Mom’s for all of their amazing help over the years?
- Make all Moms feel special by treating her right to a special night out, invite her and all the ladies of the family out for a special dinner. Each lady can give Mom a special charm for a bracelet from all of you!
- Surprise Mom with a stunning Mom charm necklace to wear everyday so she always remembers how much you love her!
Whatever you do, just remember to tell Mom, “THANK YOU!” It’s the one thing she will always love to hear!
Ohm is the sound of life, formed by Brahma, name of the spiritual Sun for the Hindus, a symbol of reality as a whole. Ohm is life, and to embrace it is a great way to bring balance and happiness to your life.

Here’s a few ways to embrace the Ohm:
- Find your inner Ohm by taking a meditation class.
- Create a bracelet with an Ohm bead. Any Ohm bead can do, but one that fits your fun personality works best to promote wellness!
- Give a friend who is struggling this month, their own Ohm bead bracelet.
- Go gun hoe for life, by getting out and exercising. Our suggestion? Going out and participate in a marathon or run/walk for Breast Cancer Awareness this month!

Part of the charm of charms and charm bracelets has always been it allows you to tell the story of your life on your wrist with a charm bracelet, show off all that jingle, and each charm always has a story behind it. If you look at any woman’s charm bracelet, there are thousands of memories attached to each charm, from hobbies, to children (or grandchildren) to travel, love, sports, you name it, there is a charm to commemorate the occasion. Beaded charm bracelets have been growing in popularity with the very same idea. A new fashion trend, possibly, but the idea behind “every bead tells a story” is the same as the traditional charm bracelets. We are proud to introduce our newest site, Classic Beads, where every bead is as unique as you are and we carry thousands of beads to celebrate all the moments in your life you want to capture on a bead, such as travel, sports, love and even crystal beads to show off your favorite color or birthstone. Visit the site today to enjoy free shipping until October 31st with any bead order!
