When is a bracelet not just a bracelet?
They say necessity is the mother of invention. My cousin emailed me today with a wonderful idea illustrating this idea. She received one of my bracelets over the holidays as a gift and here is what she said:
“Last night I was looking for a necklace to wear with a gray/black/white outfit. I was going to wear your bracelet, which was laying on my dresser.” Here was her solution – ingenious!
Basically, if you have any jewelry lying around with different charms, necklace focal pieces, etc., that can be removed from it’s chain, then you can do this, too! Perhaps many of you have already thought of this, but I thought it was very clever. 🙂
By the way, this was a double wrap bracelet with 4mm cat’s eye quartz stones (very beautiful chatoyant quality…), black leather and a simple, black button closure. Here’s what it looked like when I sent it off at Christmas:
Have you ever had an “ah-ha!” moment with your jewelry or art? Something you just never thought of that came to light like this? Let me know! I would love to hear from you.
