Charm bracelets, as well as being a fashion statement (as in Jet-Poop's writeup above), can also be used for symbolic reasons, as charms to bring luck or other desirable things, or to keep at bay undesirable occurrences. These charm symbols (listed below) are based on ancient archetypes and legends, though they first began to be used as charms in the current way back in the 1800s. Use any one of these on a charm bracelet for yourself or for a gift to attain desired results.

This list of charm symbolism was taken and expanded from page 6 of Patricia Telesco's The Magick of Folk Wisdom, © 1995.
