I used to be a fan of the big chunky bracelet, more often than not in bright eye-catching colours…
But lately I’ve returned to my teenage self and re-embraced friendship and string bracelets. I think the key is to have some good base ones which you can build around with more pop-out details, be it colour, knotting or beads. (Some good foundation string bracelets here at Gift & Wrap).
I’ve been wearing these luxe skull bracelets from Suicide Blonde to death (sorry, dreadful pun) and thinking about getting back to making my own bracelets – queue a DIY post! They don’t all have to have skulls on them, but I also quite like these ones from Elkin.
What kind of bracelets are you wearing at the moment? Or are you thinking more about watches? Watches are suddenly becoming a bit of a big deal again. But I wonder if we can get back in the way of actually using them for time-telling. If we don’t rely on them for the time, since our mobiles have completely usurped them on that front, will we ever really wear them as anything more than a pretty accessory, which means they’ll never reclaim their position of something you can’t leave the house without.
I don’t know, I liked it when we used them properly, not just as arm candy, it felt more authentic somehow. But no doubt you’ll make me eat my words when I spring up on here with a watch on my wrist, singing its praises. Until that moment, I’m sticking to bracelets. Of the string variety.
