Bracelets always take me back to my childhood when we wore, like, 50 colorful bangles on our arms. We kind of looked like Trish from Space Camp only without the big hair. Even the tinkling sound of the bracelets appealed to me.

No matter what bracelet I out on, I’m transported back to that simpler time. When your style was determined by your audacity instead of runways. That’s why no jewelry set is complete without a bracelet and this one is the perfect mate to those turquoise bird earrings.
