Today I am taking a break from nail polish and showing you my new bracelets. The ones I had been wearing from Wakami had gotten threadbare and yucky. I decided I wanted to have more professional looking bracelets, whatever that means.
My friend Shea sells these bracelets. She has an Instagram account showing off different ideas as well as her own website for selling the different options you can choose from through Origami Owl. They have regular silver bracelets, necklaces, bangles, leather wraps, charms, dangle charms and plates you can do inscriptions on.
I decided on the brown leather wrap bracelet. I have plenty of regular silver bracelet chains and wanted something different. After choosing that, you need to pick out which locket type piece you want and then you pick out what charms you want in your locket.
I think pictures always work better than my words. When I got my package in the mail and opened it, this is what I saw.
This is two small Chinese takeout containers in my box. I think that's some pretty cool packaging!
Here is a closer look.
Next, I opened up each box and pulled out what I had ordered.
The top two are tiny little boxes with a sleeve that keeps it closed. In the front are my charms and the leather wrap I ordered. Here is what is in those two boxes.
These are the two pieces that screw together to hold the charms and complete the bracelet.
Here are the charms I ordered.
There are two different green gems, ten tiny crystals, a music note and the word blog. Here they are in the locket base.
I loved this picture so much, I put it on Instagram! Just the way my camera picked up the sparkles-it's just gorgeous!
Now I will admit I had trouble figuring out how to put this bracelet together. In all reality I think they should send you some instructions as the first time I did it wrong.
Here are the pieces before I put them together.
Here is a close up of how the pieces go together.
I ended up ordering another one so I could have two! Here is how the two look when I'm wearing them.
Keep in mind I am right handed and had to take this picture with my left hand holding my expensive camera by the lens-the saying on the second leather wrap says "let it go" something I should probably do more of!
There are tons of different ideas, charms, bracelets, lockets etc from Shea's website. Please make sure you go and check it out!
