Giliena's Italian Charm Bracelet Holiday Giveaway

The Italian Charms are a lot of fun. They are a great way to customize your own bracelet. You can add charms that remind you of the special things in your life. They make an awesome holiday gift! If you are looking for a great gift for someone that is under $20 these are for you. Just take a starter bracelet like the one in the picture and add a couple of charms to it. Then the person you give it to can add more as they go along. Before they know it they will have a bracelet full of charms that have a special meaning to them.

That said, Giliena's Italian Charms and European Beads has decided to give one of these away. I am giving away the one in the picture above. It features a red starter bracelet with a sleigh, christmas tree, and NOEL charms. I will even be a little flexible on the charms. If there are three others you find on my site that you like better and you win this we will figure something out. Please note that this does exclude any authentic licensed, mega, superlinks and deluxe links. I will only swap them out for other 9mm charms of the same value.

European Beads

European Beads come in many different styles and the design options are truly endless. They come in gold, sterling silver, glass and even some silver and gold plated. The more popular brand names available are the Pandora, Chamilia and Troll Beads. There are many high quality off brands available for each type.

These beads have a large center hole that allows them to be strung on a special starter bracelet. You will find some that have a threaded center and some that do not. Some bracelets have threaded sections along the chain and the beads with the threaded center will screw onto these sections. This is designed to restrict movement of the beads on the bracelet. The beads with a smooth center will just simply slide right over these sections of the bracelet and move freely.

Glass European Beads

The glass European beads are very popular. They are also often referred to as lampwork European beads. There are so many different designs to choose from the options are limitless. They are available with sterling silver or silver plated cores. They are also available with either a double core or a single core. You can get high quality items either way however I personally prefer the single core beads. There is less chance that the core will be defective and come apart on you.

Sterling Silver European Beads

The sterling silver ones are also very popular. They come in all different shapes and sizes. Some of them are even made with stones and crystals that give them that added sparkle. You can even get them in various animal shapes, symbols and even ones with words and phrases on them. These beads are definitely eye catchers and will attract a lot of attention to your bracelet.

Starter European Bead Bracelet

The European Bead starter bracelet is basically just a rope style bracelet that you string the beads onto. There are a couple of different clasp styles out there. You can get a standard lobster clasp or one that has a beaded look. The picture here shows a sterling silver bracelet with the beaded style clasp. It really all depends on which style you prefer when customizing your bracelet. These starter bracelets also come in various types of metal from gold, sterling silver and even silver plated. It is important with these bracelets to get the right size. You are going to want to measure your wrist and then add an inch to that to determine the correct size for you. We also have available several silver plated watch bracelets.

Link-d-Link Italian Charm Tool

There just is not a better Italian Charm Tool than the Link-D-Link. You will not be disappointed with this tool. I have sold many and it always gets glowing reviews. Link~D~Link was designed with two prongs that act like fingers to hold the charm in place while you gently slide it open to add charms to your bracelet. It’s perfect for laser marked charms, photo charms and delicate dangles. We designed our charm tool with your total comfort in mind and it’s so easy to use.

It's Fun and easy!

No more sore thumbs!

It's like having two extra fingers!!

In addition to adding charms, our tool makes closing your bracelet super easy. No more hassles,no more frustration and no more broken nails! Save your manicures with Link D Link italian charm tool.

Italian Charms

The Laser Italian Charms are quite a popular item. These are a plain 9mm stainless steel charm that has a design that is machine lasered onto it. The most common ones have a black laser design. You can also find some that have a colored laser design. The fun thing about these is that you can get so many different designs. The most popular designs I have found are the ones will the different symbols and silly phrases. Another popular design for these is the name of a friend, loved one, or even your own. You can design your own bracelet with the names of all your family members. This is a great way to personalize your bracelet and show your family just how much you love them. Giliena's has so many different designs to choose from your decision will be difficult. We will soon be carrying some of the more popular names to choose from.

The Enamel Italian Charms have some amazing designs available. These charms are so beautiful and so colorful. The design possibilities are truly endless. The most important thing to note with these is you want to look for ones that are soldered on and not glued. We all want high quality items and these are the ones to look for. The X2 Italian Charms have a double thick enamel that brings out the most intricate details and gives each charm more clarity and vibrancy.

The various Italian Charm Accessories that are available will add an extra special touch to your bracelet. The deluxe heart link charms are available in all the birthstone colors with the exception of December. We just have not been able to get that blue zircon stone color. The March stone is very close to the color if you want a great substitute. If you are not interested in a bracelet then perhaps the keychain is for you. The Italian Charm Keychains are just as customizable as the bracelets and a lot of fun.

On average it will take about 16-20 links to make a full bracelet. There are Italian Charm Starter Bracelets available that will allow you to build your bracelet at your own pace. The starter bracelet comes with 18-20 blank links. You can remove some blank links to make room for your designs and keep doing that until your bracelet is full. They come in plain stainless steel, stainless steel with gold plated trim, and even many different colors. They are a great way to dress up your bracelet as well.
