Chart Story From Jehanne E., From Severn Heights, MD

There is no place like home.

My daughter loved her key chain. She "got it" immediately. It was a chart of where our house is- so she looked at it for a while and said, "Is this home?". And I said, "Yes, now that you are graduated and 'leaving home' you'll always be able to find your way back." It was really good!

Another great gift idea! A Chart piece is the perfect way to keep memories close, regardless of how far away you are. Thanks for sharing your story Jehanne!

CHART metalworks, WEAR YOUR WORLD: Kingston, NJ

Another New Jersey location but this time in Kingston (a boutique-y shopping area next to Princeton University). We loved designing these beauties from topo maps. We met owner, Laraine, at the show in Atlanta and she fell in love with the idea of creating a line to feature the college and other areas nearby.

Dabbler's Boutique is located right on Route 27 in can't miss it.

Many universities are marked on topo maps...have you thought about cuff links or earrings of your alma mata?
Just type in the name of the school in 'Other Notes' when ordering online!

Chart Story From Marci L., Boston Harbor, MA

Lobster diving memories to last a lifetime, what a great way to say Happy Birthday!

My father really loves his belt buckle with the Boston Harbor on it. He dives for lobsters there once a year, as well as having lived in the area his whole life. He also loves belt buckles and things that will start a conversation, so this was the perfect gift for his 70th birthday. He's just trying to deal with people wanting a closer look at the buckle while he is wearing it- that could be a little bit awkward!

Chart Story from Marilyn S., Nawiliwili Harbor, HI

We were touched when Marilyn shared her struggle of attaining a correct diagnosis for cancer. What a beautiful way to say thank you!

This is for my doctor who sails out of Lihue Harbor, Kauai, HI. While I work as an RN at the hospital with him, I got this piece of jewelry for him after he successfully diagnosed me with cancer. I had been misdiagnosed for 5 months prior to becoming his patient. He is a member of the Nawiliwili Yacht Club and enjoys sailing. I found out about you in the Coastal Living Magazine and I though this would be a great ocean themed gift for someone whom I am forever thankful for. I wanted to present him with this key ring as a reminder of his free time on the water because that is exactly what he gave me, more free time.
