I have had an image in my mind of a bracelet I want for some time now. Having an image in your mind of a piece of jewelry you want is always a bad idea unless you actually are a jewelry designer or, you know, not lazy. I am neither, and even more not not lazy than I am not a jewelry designer. The description of the bracelet I want goes like this: large silver gnarled twisty jumbled-up cuff with possible branchlike elements. And lo! I’ve found it!
Even more favorite than the octobrace is the Winged Migration by Erica Weiner I bought a few months ago.
Next I’m going to pick up the Scissors necklace, though I haven’t decided yet between silver and gold (wish it came in brass like the Winged Migration):
And I’m thinking that this one would be perfect for Stephen Colbert.
If you should find yourself short on cash, you can always make yourself a twisty-ish bracelet using some novelty paper clips, like these cow clips, generously provided by the Kuozzle on the occasion of Gojira’s national birthday. I think the penguins and the hippos would also work nicely.
Note: These will snag on all your sweaters.
