This is just a lovely book. I find myself sitting gazing at the pictures in a transfixed state of envy. I guess it's a coffee table book, but there's lots of useful information in it too. It's not too American for English collectors and is wonderfully inspiring for a trawl through the vintage jewellery category on eBay. Ideal for armchair collectors!

Good photos,and a nice little potted history of famous charmers...people who collected charms.
Some good ideas for starting a charm bracelet...theme a collection - people, places, events, things.
You don't have to be a millionaire to have an outstanding bracelet full of your own history. You can start a new family tradition or extend an existing one...pass one along to your daughters or help them start their own.
People are always fascinated by the origin of various charms.

Very pretty book, with wonderful photographs of intricate and unusual charms and bracelets. Deals more with the personal side of charm collection, each bracelet comes with it's own history and story. Further more the minimal last chapter has some interesting suggestions with regards to gifting charms and bracelets, definitely not a book for crafting. Good value for money also.
