This is Where All The Influencers Are Getting Their Custom Charm Accessories


With local shop Russet Accessories, a little charm goes a long way

In a generation that values handmade anik-anik and small trinkets, the appeal of charm jewelry has only grown. The trend has captured the attention of celebrities, influencers, and those who wish to infuse a personal touch with their style. A small bead or a tiny charm piece tells a story of the wearer’s personality and journey—making customization a popular option.

One of the go-to accessory hubs to build your adornments is Russet Accessories. This local charm haven has even customized bracelets and necklaces for BINI, Manila Luzon, Nadine Lustre, and many more.

Russet Accessories, founded by Stef Mesina, is popular for its “Create your own jewelry” concept. It allows you to mix and match beads to any combination for your necklaces, chokers, earrings, bracelets, and rings. Originally based in BF Homes, Parañaque, the charm buffet frequents weekend markets within and beyond Metro Manila. They also opened an online edition of their store for those who are not able to catch their pop-ups. Whether you’re buying in person or online, here’s how you can build your Russet piece.

Eye for Your Jewelry

The first step? Choose your base jewelry among a variety of stainless non-tarnish chains and links in gold or silver. Depending on the number of charms you want to add, necklaces and chokers range from ₱495 to ₱750; earrings from ₱295 to ₱550, bracelets from ₱395 to ₱650, and rings from ₱250 to ₱350. There are also beaded base jewelry options for the chokers as well as acrylic hoop variants for earrings. 

Accessories of various shapes, kinds, and designs are available for each customer

Assemble Your Charms

Next, get creative in curating your beads and charms. You can take your pick in their catalog of pendants in different colors, shapes, sizes, and icons ranging from simple to quirky designs. Russet offers free charms such as letters, zodiacs, acrylic, stones, enamel charms, and resin. However, the more intricate, premium charms have additional charges.

Taking customization to the next level, they even make some of their premium beads by hand like the sangria, fidget, and crystal Ball charms. Some charms are bestsellers or are in limited edition, so if you’re lucky, you’ll get to catch some of their new releases.

Time to Wear and Flaunt It

Once you’ve curated your charms, all that’s left to do is to arrange them and have Russet put them together. If you’re ordering from their online option, the shop will send you a picture of their arrangement for your approval until it is to your liking. 

Charms can definitely be a couple thing—just ask James and Issa!

To physically curate your jewelry, you can catch their pop-ups in multiple weekend markets like the South Trading Post, Lots of Local, Club Lokal, and The Solana Market. They’ve also done stops in Siargao, Cebu, and La Union.
