What is the story behind your business?
Charliemadison Originals is a brand dedicated to encouraging and inspiring women to stay anchored to what’s most important in their lives. Each bracelet holds a special meaning that will serve as your everyday reminder you can wear around your wrist with pride. And that cute signature leather knot on each of our bracelets? It’s a symbol that ties us to our U.S. Navy roots, our mission, and our belief in the power of family and community.
Founded in 2010 by a military spouse and named after her daughters, Charliemadison Originals has grown from a company whose mission began as a way to inspire a small community to one that is giving back to the community that inspires us every day. We are proud to honor the three generations of our family who served in the military, as well as the military community we love, by donating 5% of sales to organizations that support military service members and their families.

What is your favorite part about being a business owner?
I absolutely love to get special messages in my inbox from other gals who have been inspired in some way by the meaning behind our jewelry. Whether they feel empowered to try something new, are inspired to enjoy more time with their family, or feel more connected to their military hero despite being separated by miles.
