Call to Arms…

Quite a while ago, I moved a heap of my pins over to a new board: Wrists. You see, I am somewhat obsessed with being “jangly” and having waaay too many things on my wrists. I’ve downsized at the moment, because my skull bracelet needs rethreading, but I’ve got about ten bits of shiny at the moment, which I think more than qualifies as an arm party!!  I never take my rings off, nine times out of ten I wear the same earrings, and I usually wear my ghosty necklace, so new bracelets are sort of my go-to. Even though I have a staple set of bracelets that I never take off, I’m constantly adding to them, and lusting over new arm candy.

Friendship bracelets seem to be the ‘in’ thing at the moment, with Frieda and Nellie bracelets, beautiful as they are, retailing for about $150 a pop.  My budget unfortunately doesn’t stretch that far, but recently, Bloggers Do It Better had an Arm Party, a la The Man Repeller.  So, as friendship bracelets seem to be having their heyday, I thought I’d share some of my favourites here!

Right… I think I need to get the embroidery thread out!!

    Howdy! I know this is kinda off topic but I’d figured I’d ask.
    Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest authoring a blog post or vice-versa?
    My site discusses a lot of the same topics as yours and I think
    we could greatly benefit from each other. If you are interested feel free to shoot me
    an e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you!
    Excellent blog by the way!
