Challenge Week 42

This week I am adding to the Shades of Grey collect with this great bracelet.  Before I tell you about the bracelet I want to talk about the use of clasps on bracelets versus elastic.  I prefer the elastic when wearing a bracelet because it is so easy to slip on.  I try to use easy to use clasps because there isn’t always someone around to help you put on the bracelet.  I don’t know about you but I want to be wearing the bracelet when I leave the house because if I have to carry it with me until I can find someone to put it on my wrist then I forget that it is in my bag. Tell me what you think about elastic versus clasps on bracelets.

Back to the new bracelet.  It is made with small shell disks, glass pearls and hematite roundels.  I put a pewter color clasp on this bracelet to blend in with the grey and I think it finishes off the bracelet nicely.  This will fit a 7 and ¾ inch wrist.
