Around The Wrists

clear container: Nomess Copenhagen
All of these bracelets have already made a digital appearance or two on the blog. There haven’t been many more bracelets in my life which I like as much as these. Besides loving them solely because of their looks, each one of them has a bit of a special background story.

N°1. A hardware store gem. I love the sense of functionality it has because of its separate parts and screws.

N°2. Thrifted this bracelet for € 3 a couple of years ago. A jeweler told me that this gold piece is worth 100x what I payed for it. Score!
(identical one here)

N°3. This industrial piece is actually a car part, don’t ask me exactly what kind of part, I just put it around my wrist.

    I love that most of these aren’t even supposed to be bracelets, you are truly a creative individual Ivania.

    i love the hardware and car part bracelets, they’re so unique (i always try to find similar items after reading your blog, i just can’t seem to!)

    also, i think your layout is breaking slightly. all i can see are images and when i scroll, everything stays the same but the text moves.

  16. Incredible,,,, your blog is so addictive. Possibly has something to do with its incredibly slick image, keep it up! X Karen

  17. Industrial jewelery still hot. I have to look for things like this.

  18. LOve the third one! Just because of its interesting story. Kind of a ready made but for fashion!

    I absolutely love the stories behind each bracelet. I also adore that you take unordinary items and turn them into accessories. By reading your blog I’ve started looking around the house for potential new items haha!

  20. Hahaha, No 3.
    Like I said, you’re one of the most creative people I follow.
    Thanks for the inspiration.

    You’re such a genius Ivania, I was gonna say the first one but no, the third one from a car part (omg, that’s brill!) will be the provoking winner piece hehee. You should check out my denim on denim on neon kidult look, which sort of looks like Peter Pan gave me a makeover… tell me what you think of it even if it only provokes you a bit 😉

    I wear a similar bracelet like the second one on a daily basis, but in silver. I love how it’s so discrete and people are always amused when they notice the gap haha.

    Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your articles?

    I mean, what you say is important and all. Nevertheless imagine
    if you added some great graphics or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”!
    Your content is excellent but with pics and videos, this website could undeniably be one of the most beneficial
    in its niche. Very good blog!
