Dea Shelton, Creator, Charm BraceletsBlackberry Designs Jewelry
Masterfully Crafted * Magically Charming®

My passion for charm bracelets and charm jewelry started as a teenager when my father traveled the world on business and would bring me and my sister a charm from each country he visited. My dad passed on in 2002, and I wanted to always have him close to me, so I created a bracelet with pictures of my father and the charms he had collected for my bracelet. Friends and family saw this legacy bracelet and my business was born. My designs have been inspired by the beautiful charm bracelets of the 1940's and 1950's. 

Each of my charm bracelet tells a story, and each charm, crystal and image is carefully select to complete the story.  It can take from 3-6 months to find charms, Photoshop my vintage images and create each of my charm bracelets.   Whether you are looking at the single rose from Beauty and the Beast, or the cabbage rose from Alice in Wonderland, each charm is selected to reflect that story.

Since 2002, my charm bracelets, personalized jewelry, earrings and necklaces have been featured on the web, fine art fair's, juried art shows, magazines, Television, the front page of Etsy, and numerous Blogs and websites. I create my jewelry and charm bracelets with alternative metals including jewelry grade, 316L Stainless Steel, USA cast pewter and crystals by Swarovski.

You can find more information about my supplies and how I create each piece on my "about your jewelry" page.
