Something Different

Something Different
(A New Leather Bracelet)
When I went to a recent Bead Show, my intent was to find the leather and findings for the Regaliz style bracelet I wanted to give to my grandson for his Bar Mitzvah. Of course, that was not all I found.
Clever Treasures is a favorite vendor of mine for all things leather and new designs using leather. Naturally, Deb had the leather I was looking for plus other interesting finds. She was wearing an interesting bracelet and I purchased the necessary materials to make one.
The bracelet has a magnetic clasp and is easy to put on and to take off. Well, easy to take off once you understand how it works. You have to put your finger nail in the right spot and twist. I purchased the clasp at another favorite souce of all good things, pflora beads in Canton, MA
It was an interesting scene when I got it on and couldn't get it off. My husband couldn't get it either. I knew one way to do it but that way took two hands. Not possible with the bracelet on one arm. With two hands, he could do it for me, of course.
At that point I didn't know about the finger nail technique. So after we got it off, I played with the clasp for awhile until I discovered the finger nail method. Oh, yes, the little thingy that looks like you should push it, is not the solution. Needless to say, it is a very good strong magnetic clasp that you don't have to worry about coming off in the refrigerator. But that is another story. (I'll tell you if you ask)
What do you think of this new bracelet? Would you like to have one or give as a gift in the upcoming gifting season? Let me know.
I made two Regaliz style bracelets. So, I also, have another Regaliz style bracelet for sale if anyone is interested.
Until  next week,
