European or bead-style charm bracelet
Around the start of the new golden age, a new fashion in charm bracelets began in Europe and quickly moved to North America. The modular charm bracelet consists of a thin metal chain onto which any number of charm beads can be added. Instead of hanging from the chain, these charms are threaded like beads, and then they can hug the wrist for a polished appearance and less jangly sound.
These charm beads are made from materials like polymer clay, glass, precious metal, and wood. Like the traditional handing charms, these charms can also be sculpted to seem like anything from a heart to an animal. Well, the charm beads are exchangeable, so you can easily change the piece from day to day if desired.
There are some popular brands of European-style charm bracelets, which include Lovelinks, Pandora, and Trollbeads. Well, beads from any brand are exchangeable with the other brands.
Italian style charm bracelet
Well, the Italian-style charm bracelet is not the same as the European style charm bracelet, they both differ from traditional charm bracelets. Rather than linking hanging charms or threading charm beads on a chain, with these kinds of Italian style bracelet, the charms are the links themselves. This Italian style brand new bracelet has a series of blank, flat square links that bind together to form a bracelet. You can make your bracelet by replacing the blank links with charm links. These links are modular and they have a standard size, by doing that you can easily swap out charm links to match your mood.
