Just a Little Charm in Downtown Bend is owned and operated by the delightful Jen Aylward. In early 2011 Jen went on the search for reclaimed metal. She stumbled onto the salvage company that had copper flashing from a building demolished in Downtown Bend, OR. The building housed the Bend Bulletin newspaper since 1965. That day Just A Little Charm was born! Now, incorporating other salvaged materials with the copper, she uses her humor and creativity to make necklaces, earrings, zipper pulls and key chains. She can even make you something personalized right on the spot! Visit Jen at 224 NW Oregon Ave in Downtown Bend.
