Lindsey Jackson of Yankee Girl Designs has written up some great tips on how to make personalized charm necklaces as gifts for friends and family on special occassions. Lindsey says, “Last year a dear friend of mine got married. I picked up a few things from her registry to bring to the bridal shower but I found myself wanting to mark the occasion with something a bit more personal. After all, this is the same girl who shared her Bonne Bell lipgloss with me in Jr. High and held my hand when I broke up with my High School boyfriend. I wanted to give her something that would be slightly more memorable than say, towels or cookware.” Link.
