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.
