Recycled Pendant Charm Bracelet

I am in Spring Cleaning mode and nothing is safe. I cleaned and organized the garage, reorganized my closet, and tidied the drawers in my nightstand.

During my decluttering binge, I rediscovered some pendent necklaces I haven’t been wearing and my old charm bracelet.

 Pin this for later. Memory charm bracelets make thoughtful gifts!

Many of my old necklaces were gifts and have special meaning. I know I don’t need a necklace made from one of my grandfather’s tuxedo buttons to remember him but I don’t want to get rid of it either.

I want to wear the necklaces more often and I always wished my charm bracelet were as a full of charms as my mom’s. That’s when I realized I had the answer in front of me.

The subway token isn't a charm. I bought it off eBay to symbolize my first trip to New York because my Metrocard was too big to wear.

I bought some split jump rings and added the pendants from the necklaces to my charm bracelet. Now I can wear all of my happy memories more often and at the same time!

I know wearing an old school charm bracelet is a little bit retro but sometimes so am I.
