Charming ID Bracelet

Don’t ask me why, but I suddenly had the urge to make an ID bracelet for myself.  This was my project for Tuesday’s jewelry studio time:

It’s a very delicate bracelet, with not much in the way of bells and whistles.  As you can see, in addition to the name plate, I included two small circle charms with an M (for Mick) and an S (for Stuart).

It’s sterling silver, and I gave it a satin finish and a handmade clasp.  Originally I was thinking I might make the chain by hand, but admittedly, that’s a pretty long process and it seemed more practical to use pre-made chain.  In retrospect, I think that was the right choice because I could have never made chain this delicate anyway.

As I mentioned yesterday, Mick had his naturalization oath and is now an American citizen.  You can read about his experience here.

  1. That’s lovely, and charming and all sorts of wonderful. Those are the kind of photos that create a story. You can see someone finding this on a beach somewhere and losing themselves in an imaginary journey of filling in the blanks.
    Thank you for sharing!

  2. I Love It! I do think you need to add a “K” though. I would love to commission one with “Jules” (what Rich and most everyone calls me, so I guess that is my i.d.) and a R R and K. Just let me know how much and don’t worry if you don’t have time to fit it in right now. I just love the look of it. I’ve been wearing the “Hope” necklace the past week or so – it always gets people’s attention. Although some people lean in too close to my chest to read it!
