A couple of month ago a colleague mentioned the idea of recreating her unique handmade bracelets. Oh, the love of bracelets. Stacked on the wrist. All in smooth silk, snakeskin, lambskin, calfskin and semi precious stones. What’s not to like?

There are a million ways to rock these armbands. Mixing vivid colours and textures. For those who loves a more playful option, pile on braided or bead bracelets.

Don’t be afraid to go bold. Layer on some meaningful charms and write your own narrative. Let it represent something personal – a moment, feeling or luck. Reveal the person you’re, what you’ve experienced and what you stand for. Perhaps that’s the reason charms still persist.
