It's no surprise then, that instead of wearing one bracelet, your children can end up wearing several all at once, and when they do, they slip and slide all over the place. Which is not a bad thing; it can be rather a spectacular and eye-catching event... just not when you're toilet training or feeding them spaghetti. Little girls grow up, and when they do they still covet and hoard and accumulate and amass. If you're like me, and blessed with stick thin wrists, for whatever reason, it means that as well as wearing you own collection you can also wear your preschoolers' jewelry... although of course, you can't support your body weight in a cartwheel... so embarrassing.
Constant talk of the Olympic Rings got me thinking about jewelry, and designing a solution to the many-bracelet-woes. I call it - "the humble ribbon."
Select 3 or 4 bracelets (or 5 if you're feeling Olympic) that are a compatible color (I went for a slightly patriotic feel), and then select a short piece of ribbon in a compatible or contrasting color. Tie the bracelets all together with a bow and slip them on your wrist.
Beautiful! In world record time you can turn a jumble of rather cheap looking bracelets into an ensemble that's slightly more classy, more striking and defiantly easier to manage when you have to demonstrate a cartwheel!
