The charm bracelet market has been explosive in the past few years and there are so many companies and styles out there. One of my goals for the blog is to showcase different brands and their unique take on the modular jewelry concept. Waxing Poetic was introduced to me late last year and I have been working diligently with the company to be featured here. So I’m very excited to be introducing this line to Charms Addict today!
Waxing Poetic was started in 2002 by a pair of sisters, Patti and Lizanne Pagliei located in California. The company’s philosophy is to “pay homage to the journey of our lives: where we come from, what our stories are, and how they have influenced both the world and us.” The collection offers a wonderful selection of jewelry made in sterling silver, often with brass accents, and produced by Balinese goldsmiths. Their aesthetic is boho or vintage chic and on the larger side for dangles.
The brand offers a number of themes including Insignias, Icons & Sentiments, Articles of Faith, Illuminate, and Lockets. Insignias are letters in different styles; Icons & Sentiments has a wide range of charms to represent our life; Articles of Faith are mostly religious and spiritual symbols; Illuminate dangles feature crystal detailing; and the Locket designs can store a photo and is magnetically closed. A really cool aspect of Waxing Poetic is that they also have a whole line of customizable jewelry that can be engraved. These inspirational charms can be used on a full selection of necklace chains, bracelets, and bangles.
The first time I saw Waxing Poetic, it was paired with Trollbeads and the effect was stunning. The large hoop base can fit on all bracelet brands so these charms can be incorporated with your current collection. I’ve been wearing my Waxing Poetic charms pretty much every day since I got them and I am so happy to be sharing them with you. My upcoming reviews will feature the Insignias, Biographies, Bundled by Love Nest, Delighted States of America, Poetic Falcon, Storybook Pages, Wing and a Prayer, Tiny Lights, and a few choices for Mother’s Day!
I am loving my Waxing Poetic charms, and it sounds like wind chimes when I walk around which brings a smile to my face. I’ll be writing more detailed reviews of course, but this brand can be purchased on their main website, La Chique Maison which is the first Waxing Poetic shop-in-shop, and my favorite Trollbeads retailer Goldmine Jewelry Shoppe also carries Waxing Poetic. The following photos are courtesy of the lovely Mandy from La Chique Maison and shows off their wonderful display of the jewelry.
Have you come across this joyful brand before? Is this style something that appeals to you?
