I had my first major jewelry experience when I was a ten-year-old flower girl in my aunt’s wedding. For the occasion, my mother accessorized me in my little charm bracelet totally tricked out with mementos from trips across the country and talismans collected along the way. Well, my treasure rang like a little bell when I walked the aisle and at the reception everyone wanted to see my special trinket. That's when I learned what a great conversation piece jewelry can be. With Mother’s Day on the horizon, I would love to return the favor and give my mother a loaded up charm bracelet like this one from Mary Margaret Lang’s vintage collection. It could break the ice anywhere.
