Charms, Charms And More Charms – A Directory Of Artists, Manufacturers And Designers

Saturday, February 19th, 2011

For quite some time now, I have been “collecting” names of artists, designers and manufacturers of charms and charm bracelets. Then it dawned on me: perhaps others could also benefit from this list, and find new favorite designers and styles? I asked a few friends, who all said YES! so I decided it would be a good idea to share it with you all.

You will see that it is a wide variety – everything from famous fashion designers to relatively unknown artists working out of their home studio. The list is constantly growing and I keep finding new and exciting designs all the time. However, I don’t put “just anyone” on the list – only original designs and I have to like them. So I guess you can say it’s a “curated list”.

As I mentioned above, this list is by no means complete, and I will keep adding to it on a regular basis. If you have a favorite designer you think belongs on this list (from anywhere in the world), please contact me and I will check them out and if I like what I see, I’ll add them.

Since charms come in several styles these days, I have created a little style “key” so that you can easily find the types of charms you are looking for:

European-style = bead charms
Vintage = no longer in production, but can be found at auctions, etc. Traditional-style charms unless noted otherwise
Traditional = Regular charms (with jump or split ring attachments. NOTE that traditional does not necessarily mean traditional looking bracelets; it just describes the type of charm
Clip on charms = Traditional charms with a clasp attachment
Italian charms = Modular link-style
Craft = mini charms suitable for scrap booking, etc.
Kids = charm bracelets for children
Rings = interchangeable charm or bead rings, or rings with charms attached
Earrings = interchangeable charm or bead earrings
Necklaces = interchangeable charm or bead necklaces
Mobile = cell phone charms
Pre-made = already assembled charm bracelets, usually with the charms soldered on. Pre-made in parenthesis means it is the only type they offer, Pre-made on its own means they offer that in addition to separate charms
Slide = slide charms
Watch = charm watches
