It’s been a few years since I began making “mother’s bracelets” using engraved beads from Generation Gems. I love their products, and their customer service simply cannot be beat!
My most popular design is a women’s bracelet, using hematite, Swarovski pearls and assorted Bali silver beads. Neutral and understated, most of the folks who look at the sample I have of my own mother’s bracelet have a harder time pronouncing my daughter’s name than deciding on what style to order!
But lately, I’ve noticed a trend…can you believe guys like to brag too?! Why yes! I have more and more men who are interested in (and order!) my chainmaille version of the mother’s bracelet.
So I’ve started calling these Brag Bracelets, after a friend ordered one for her husband and used the term. Recently, a client named Brad ordered his own version, using beads with the names of his children and his wife in a strong Byzantine weave. I can’t wait to deliver it to him this week.
After all, Real Men like to brag about their family too. 🙂
