Here's a great little charm bangle that's lightweight and comfortable to wear. It also layers very well with other bangles--I know because I wore it with my own bangles all day yesterday and it felt like they were made to go together.

I kind of backed into this one because I had set out to make a bangle with charms and my first attempt involved creating a fused fine silver bangle as the base. That didn't work out, so I thought I'd see what would happen if I melted pieces of it down into drops of silver and then hammered, drilled and hand-finished them as little nugget charms. They were a lot of work, but I loved them!

Since the fine silver bangle didn't work out, I made another out of harder sterling silver, which is more durable. I attached the charms to the bangle with fused fine silver links, and also added a handmade fossil walrus ivory bead with a hardened sterling jump ring (the ends meet inside the hole of the bead).

All of the silver parts were hammered on my desert rock anvil for a primitive look, oxidized, and hand-finished to a soft polish. The charms all move around the bangle freely, and cluster at the bottom when you're wearing it. They don't make a lot of noise since they're fine silver, just a soft clicking sound that I actually think is very soothing.

This one's an instant favorite!

Size: Maximum inside diameter of the bangle is 70mm x 65mm. The outside diameter varies from 76mm to 70mm. The fossil ivory bead measures 22mm x 17mm x 9mm, and the silver charms hang down to a maximum of 37mm below the bangle itself.

Care: Wash in lukewarm water with a mild soap to clean. Polish the silver with a jeweler's polishing cloth.

Your Arroyo Rocks bangle will arrive beautifully giftwrapped in a hand-decorated pillow box, along with a handwritten descriptive label.
