Featured Seller: Charming Darling

I'm Andrea Trbovich, designer of all manner of fun & funky charm jewelry, available at &

At 41, I probably shouldn't be sharing my age anymore, but I think that I'm only getting better with age! I'm a wife & mom of two terrific kids, and we live in the suburbs of Columbus, Ohio. In my spare time (ha ha!), I moonlight as an interior decorator.

I've loved charms & charm bracelets since I was a kid, and I've always been artsy & crafty. After doing time in the corporate world, I saw that my creative nature was being stifled. Big time. Think "caged animal syndrome"!

One day back in 2004, there was a storm...a brainstorm, that is. Synapses were flaring and suddenly I realized that I could combine my love of charms & my desire to create something artsy & fun, and Charming Darling was born.

Charming Darling started out with sterling silver charm bracelets with whimsical themes. Pretty soon I started putting more than just sterling silver charms on fact, now I put just about anything on a charm bracelet, necklace or earrings!

I also design the Vintage Darlings (TM) line, which are fabulous, one-of-a-kind bracelets & other jewelry, made with vintage components. My latest passion is creating dainty necklaces with vintage components.

In addition to and, you can also see my jewelry on the Bracelet a Day Project at, which is an experiment in jewelry, based on the "Painting a Day" trend. A bracelet every day...or at least on weekdays...for one year...and maybe a necklace or earrings thrown in every now & then.

Here are some of my personal faves...
