I love the Alex & Ani bracelets but I think they’re pretty expensive for basically stainless steel wire. I haven’t attempted to mimic the expandable design, my prototype (above) has a simple hook and loop closure. The fun part will be hanging the “danglies”. This one has a black pearl coin, moon/star charm, opaque white, midnight blue, and silvery-clear Austrian crystals on one loop, and a wee star charm. I dig it. I’m already thinking of doing “element” themes – earth, air, water, fire along with sea and sky. I still need to perfect my technique, my prototype here is a *little* wonky. But I’m excited! I have necklaces and earrings but have never offered bracelets before. Whee!!!!
