Over 15 bracelets that you can wear on one arm, at one time, and look very fashionably "in."
Starting from 2mm all the way up to 6mm sized beaded bracelets are the "in" bracelets that once on your arm, you'll never want to take off.
Made from sterling silver or14k yellow gold or 14k rose gold filled beads, these bracelets are amazing.
Simplicity is the reason why.
First, let's discuss the ease of wearing them.
Roll them over your hand and you're done.
Can't be any more simple that that, right? Made from special jeweler's elastic, these bracelets are strong.
Strong enough to sleep in, shower in, swim in and never take off.
But what about wear and tear?
Well, the bracelets are real metal.
They aren't base metal, stainless steel, brass or plated metals. Not made from materials out there that rust, fade and perhaps turn your skin green. So, be sure to check when purchasing what the metal is. There is a price difference, cheaper ones means exactly that--cheap metal.
Alef Bet Jewelry hand-strings their bracelets from sterling silver and 14k gold filled beads in Los Angeles, California.
In fact, we've had one stringer making all of our gemstone and bead jewelry for 19 years now.
So, what does it mean exactly gold-filled?
Well, think of an egg.
The shell of the egg, or in this case, the bead is real gold, 14k gold, and the inside of the "egg" is sterling silver. It is filled --gold filled.
So, you're getting real jewelry-- just less 14k gold than a solid bead.
At a fraction of the cost of solid gold.
So, the bracelets are truly safe to wear all of the time.
In fact, here is a picture of my bracelets two years ago, and again last year and now, 2018.
Here is my first set from 2016. There is a 6mm and a 5mm size here along with a turquoise bead as well a black diamond bead in the center of the other one.
2017 they traveled to Cancun, and as you can see, they are perfect. Even after the exposure to the sea, sand, water and the humidity from the beach/tropical air.
They even traveled to the snow in Mammoth Lakes, Ca. Of course, one image shows a few different styles and designs but the same basic bead bracelets are still being worn, just some more bracelets are added or switched out.
There also is no limit to the amount of bracelets that you can wear at once. And notice the colors-- rose is mixed with yellow and silver. It looks great all together, so there are no set rules to follow when designing your pattern of bracelets.
Note: this stack is from early 2018
And late August 2018, here is the same set of bracelets. The image is bit fuzzy, but rest assured the bracelets look just as perfect as they were back in 2016.
Another question you might ask, who is the "designer" behind these bracelets?
There is no designer, there is no one person.
A bead is a bead is a bead and you really can't create a name behind a round bead.
What you can create is a company that stands behind their work, and can guarantee you a product you'll love wearing, just as much as we do.
And the proof is in the pictures.
So, how many bracelets are you planning on wearing together?
One with your watch on your left hand?
What size beads?
Or are you a "stacker?" Meaning are you going to layer them on in odd numbers?
Do you mix rose gold with yellow gold and silver, or are you a one color only type of lady?
And if this isn't confusing enough, there are colored beads you can into the mix as well!
And wrist size.
Let's talk size.
A standard wrist measures 7" when you buy bracelets.
Of course, there are smaller wrists, tiny wrist, larger wrists and thick wrists.
Since these bracelets are all hand-strung, we make them to fit exactly as you want.
Best bet is to accurately measure your wrist it to take a string, or even dental floss, and measure your wrist and lay the string out on a ruler.
If you have a 6" wrist then you are a standard, 7" bracelet size.
However, you won't want the bracelet dangling and flopping all over the place like a "normal" bracelet does.
You will want the beads a bit more snug to your arm like shown in the picture.
We recommend a 6.75" bracelet for a standard 7" bracelet size.
And if you have a 7" wrist, and wear a 8" bracelet, order a 7.75".
Small wrists, take a 6.25" or a 6.5"
A little girl would wear a 6" bracelet.
Again, best to measure and order based on the size of your string since a round bracelet can be difficult to lay out straight on a ruler.
And guys..... let's not forget the males out there.
Men like this look too, however.... they prefer 6mm size beads rather than the smaller ones. And choose 8" in size for their wrists.
So, what are you going to create with your arm party?
