Happy Fall y'all! Who is excited for cooler temperatures and LESS humidity?!? Although summer is my most favorite time of year (because it means beach time with the family, fresh vegetables from our garden, and short sleeves and flip flops), I must admit that it is time for a change of season and a cool down that doesn't include me sweating as soon as I open the front door!
I know Fall means back to school and cooler temps, but it also means that football season has begun! With a family full of avid sports fans, this means that most weekends (and some week nights) are going to be filled with football watching, tailgating, and cheering on our favorite teams. SoCharm has some GREAT jewelry options for gals wanting to cheer on their local teams on gameday, and I wanted to showcase some of our top picks for game day.
Our MEDALLION BRACELETS are perfect for any fall event, especially tailgating! My faves are of course the red, white, and black medallion bracelets. Our navy and brown colors are also fabulous options that go with so many team colors! The perfect complement to all of our game day outfits, these beauties come with either a gold or silver medallion (your choice!), and feature light weight, wood beads.
Our infinity earrings and our aqua blue large tassel necklace are both great for all of you UNC fans! Featuring a light blue stone bead, the infinity earrings are a fabulous game day accessory, and, no doubt one of our best sellers, these earrings include a gold plated infinity component, and are perfect to dress up or down! The large tassel aqua necklace features a beautiful tassel with white wood beads.
Speaking of our large tassel necklaces, our cobalt blue large tassel necklaces are perfect for our Duke fans! And where are my Clemson fans?! Try out our tangerine orange large tassel necklace! These necklaces are super light weight and are perfect to wear on gameday or any day of the year!
We are super excited to announce that during the week of March 26, we will be donating 25% of all online sales to the Amick Family Adoption! Here's our guest blogger Lindsey Amick and her sweet family's story.
We just recently celebrated our daughter’s second birthday. It was a day filled with Minnie Mouse ears, friends, and deep gratitude for the blessing she is in our lives. We met Addie when she was two weeks old in a badly lit NICU room and in that moment our family grew to three. Our adoption journey to get to her was a long one and often times very difficult. Throughout the entire process, however, we believed God had called us to grow our family through adoption and in spite of the process at the end would be a beautiful addition to our family.
Being a parent is so hard and so wonderful all at the same time. There are times as new parents when we think no way could we handle more. Yet, we recently found ourselves asking if we would do it all again. And the answer was a big ole’ YES. So here we are jumping into this whirlwind adoption process with hopes of growing our family into four. We believe so strongly that adoption is a picture of the Gospel, and how God has welcomed us into His family as His own. We also feel strongly that a sibling for our daughter is in her best interest so they can help shape and grow and love one another.
We are seeking to adopt an infant domestically and we are currently in the homestudy portion of our process. Right now adoption looks like a lot of paperwork, meetings, and prayer. Another big aspect of this process for us is fundraising, which is why we are here together now! Adoption is expensive and we know firsthand that it takes a village to bring a baby home. We are so blessed that the generosity of others helps us to grow our family.
Meredith and I first met when my husband and I were serving on staff at her family’s church in North Carolina. We were instantly bonded because we share the same birthday! We had the privilege of attending Bobby and Meredith’s wedding and spending time with their families as we served in NC. We now live in Missouri and through the gift of social media have kept in touch. Bobby and Meredith have a heart for adoption just like we do and I am OBSESSED with Meredith’s gorgeous jewelry collection and thus this fundraising partnership was born.
Thank you so much for hearing our story and being a part of what God is writing for our future. You can continue to follow our journey and give financially at our website amickadventures.wordpress.com. You can read more about our first adoption here.

Welcome to SoCharm Designs online shop y'all! I am beyond excited to open this up to you and have my pieces available through this website. This is something that has been a dream of mine for some time now, and to have it launched is nothing short of a blessing! I hope you will enjoy it and make sure to ask questions and offer suggestions as you navigate and find your way around.
Let me tell you a little bit about me and my journey to this place. I suppose my jewelry making began as a small child (as I'm sure many of us women did) when I made little pieces of play jewelry here and there through a jewelry making kit of some sort. I would make these pieces as a pastime and play with them and be so proud when I was done. As I grew up I realized that my mom's love for creativity and DIY projects was bred into me, and I eventually developed an addiction to DIYing and crafting. I also developed a love for jewelry - pretty jewelry. I would find myself gravitating toward all the bling I could find whenever I went out shopping (and probably spent way too much on it). In college as I found myself looking at pieces of jewelry, somewhere along the way my two loves of handcrafting and jewelry collided, and I began creating my own.
But I never knew that when I made my first "big girl" necklace back in my college years that it would turn into SoCharm. I finally got up the nerve to start selling it when my local church hosted its first fall bazaar in 2013. While I have been making jewelry for over a decade now (seriously, I can't believe I just said decade), and selling it to the public for several years, the website has always been in the back of mind. At first it was something that I believed was only a dream. But slowly and surely I believed it could happen, and now it has happened!
Thank you so much for being a part of this and for your support! STAY TUNED as we add more inventory, follow us on social media, and make sure to sign up on our email list for special deals and promotions. Happy shopping!
