When my older sisters were teenagers in the 1970s they both had silver charm bracelets. For special occasions, like Sweet Sixteen, my parents bought them charms. They looked something like this.
My mom also had a charm bracelet when she was in high school. It was nicer than my sisters’ bracelets. My mom’s charms were heavier and more elaborate in design. It looked kind of like this one.
My sisters’ bracelets weren’t as nice as my mom’s, but they were still pretty nice.
Then I came along, Generation X. This is the charm bracelet designers created for us.
Very colorful, eh? And plastic. There were necklaces, too. I loved them, even if they were tacky and cheap.
Steezys Cord Charms
Now, we have Steezys — charms for your cords. You can still buy really nice charm bracelets at fine jewelers, but Steezys are the easy charms for Generation Z. Generation Y or Millennials, too. They’re not exactly heirloom keepsakes to hand down through the generations, but I have a feeling these things are going to take off.
