My beloved Juicy Couture Charm Collection. These pictures show 75% of my charm collection. My holiday charms are tucked away along with charms I keep dear to my heart but do not wear anymore. Shortly, I will add a list of all the charms I have in my collection.
I found these cute tea saucers at the thrift store.
I group my charms according to their theme. I have a lot of “romantic” and “water” themed charms, those stay consistent on the saucers. I also rotate another saucer for seasonal charms. This season I have “spring” charms featured.
Here is an example of theming charms. Pictured I have my “Genie/Arabian Nights” Theme: Genie Head, Lamp, and Camel. I will post an article on themes I wear.
Right after I took the pictures above, I made my cupcake stand. Cupcakes and cakes are a hobby of mine and my next project was to make a cupcake tower for my clients. What better way to showcase my charms? From this site www.cakejournal.com
Throughout the years
On average, I add 15 – 25 Charms to my collection each year. For how much that costs me, I chose to ignore that figure. I do however get most of my charms on sale/clearance.

Yes, my collection has relocated to a new location, a cozier location.
On my one saucer, I have my favorite theme romantic.
I try to group themed charms together in one box.
My sweets theme and my toy theme. I adore the toy theme with the Jack in the Box, Yorkie in the Airplane, and Teddy Bear.
My charm box is swamped! I would have purchased another box but the quality changed so I opted out.
