Gold charm bracelet with charms from JE Caldwell (RIP)...
In my ongoing one-woman attempt to resurrect 1960, I submit Exhibit A: the charm bracelet.
Was there ever such an accessory wrapped within an entire culture? Was there ever such a lovely, gilded time when something so sweet, so optimistic, so idealistic was de rigeur? There indeed once was a time when we women were charming, witty and gay...and the omnipresent bracelet that dangled and tinkled at our wrists was but aural evidence. Individual golden charms, meant to signify special moments in our lives...soldered carefully onto the sunny chains that bound us to those existences. The sound of the clinking charms as old-fashioneds were raised to red-lipsticked lips and as children's heads were lovingly and distractedly tousled by manicured hands reinforced the overall impression that womanhood was rich, rewarding and, yes, charming.
Gold heart charms for marriage and children...
