BANGLES AND BRACELETS

I have drawers full of bangles and bracelets–when I was younger I wouldn't dream of leaving the house without my arms loaded full of loot–I also happen to like the sound bangles make.  When I had children, I all but stopped wearing jewelry–any mom that has had an earring ripped out by a curious baby can vouch for this decision.   It took me years to start wearing jewelry again, but I think I'm making up for lost time now….

Vintage lucite bangles, and metal bangles from Dinosaur 

Monies cuff.

Gold bangles 

Vintage 80's bangles won on e-bay.

Lucite
I love lucite jewelry!!  Monies cuff on bottom, the rest are vintage.

Mesh bangles 

Lately I've been stalking mesh bangles on eBay–they can be found for around $10.

This is my favorite mesh piece–it's from the 70's.

    Great post – and a lovely collection, as always.
    I have a vintage mesh bracelet that is from my grandmother’s collection. I get compliments on it every time I wear it – one of my favorite pieces.

    Oh, no, you know what is going to happen to the prices on that now, don’t you? I am still pretty sure you sparked the huge interest in the Ross buckles. Mesh is also a recent favourite of mine, Ebay has been a generous source for me too. :-) Sandra

    I love the look of piles and piles of bangles. It’s something I admire on other people because I don’t do it myself (wrists are too small, plus I always ALWAYS have long sleeves). The lucite is fantastic! Another one of those things I admire on other people, don’t think lucite suits darker skin tones. All the jewelry is fantastic. I like the idea of vintage jewelry, it’s cool to think it comes with its own history.
    -ps. the raptor is a nice touch!

    I simply adore the chains encased in clear plastic! That would really sold the issues of wearing chains for people with sensative skin like myself~ hmm.
    Huge bangles are great!

    I find my penchant for long (very long!) sleeves tends to preclude bangle-wearing for me, which is a shame. I love the lucite especially, I may have to look into that.

    You and your daughter have one of the most beautiful jewelry collections ever. I love the lucite encased gold chains! I have the same ones and have had women stop me in the street to ask where I got them.

    Great collection, I really like the lucie with chains inside, I find I have to use US ebay for good vintage jewellery as UK ebay just isnt as good for bold pieces, happy easter x

    Cool!
    I just found out you are collecting Monies.
    They remind me when I checked the Iris Apfel Exhibit
    a couple of months ago which I haven’t posted it on my blog yet. Most of her accessories are from Monies.
    I love your bracelet collections so much!

    Judy, I just LOVE your bracelet collection. I collect them, too, and will be doing a post on it sometime in the near future! :)
    I think it’s because my mom always wore 3 big silver bracelets from Santa Fe when I was growing up, so I just grew to love how an arm full of bracelets looked!

    Bangles are a decorative ornament that women across India-Pakistan have been wearing for centuries. Bangles adore the tender wrists of women. Above Bangles and Bracelets are looking beautiful.

    You have extraordinary taste and style–somehow something showed in Google with my name connected with your site. I didn’t find any reference on here, although you show one bracelet I am selling and MONIES, a line I adore & sell, both on Ebay and Bonanza under paulibeverlyhills, so maybe that’s it. Glad I googled & directed too your site, so I could experience your great selection. Due to the holidays, no time to read your blogs now, but I will return to read them. Your photos are terrific–your whole vibration is just fashion forward and delightful.
    Happy Holidays to you and yours and wishing you a wonderful 20ll…filled with jewelry, good health, love, prosperity, spiritual beauty….regards, pauli beverly hills@aol.com
