To say I am obsessed with Brooklyn Charm would be an understatement. Since I discovered them a few years ago, I have purchased many gifts for both my loved ones and for myself (obvs).
The amount of charms they have and combinations is absolutely endless. Not only can you stop in and get a custom piece, you can take home supplies and craft up something on your own or shop online at their Etsy Shop!
If you're in the NY area, you can find them on Williamsburg and spend an entire day choosing charms and having them custom engraved. They pop up at many markets, especially during the holiday season, including the Union Square Market and Columbus Circle Shops.
Although they are fun for gifts of all kinds, my favorite project I worked on with them was this pin for my mom.
As I mentioned, my Mom got married in October of this year. What do you get for your mom, who is a bride, who has been with my step dad for over 13 years, and has EVERYTHING you could possibly think of? Its a tough one, I know!
So I got to thinking, something custom was what was needed. Then I remembered the Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed and Something Blue tradition for weddings. Perfect.
So here is what I came up with, with some clever thinking and help from the great staff at Brooklyn Charm.
Something Old - Vintage Pin, New York (They moved a while back)
Something New - Georgia, the green crystal and their wedding date
Something Borrowed - The diamond heart is a charm from a piece I inherited from my Aunt and she HAS to give it back eventually
Something Blue - The blue charm
She was so happy when I gave this to her. She wore it pinned to her shoulder the entire wedding. I can't believe I came up with something this perfect, but you can too! Stop by Brooklyn Charm and get someone you love (or you, I won't tell anyone) something special for the holidays.
