Is this the cutest bracelet you ever did see?
It’s made from actual recycled typewriter keys, each with a smooth silver backing. I got this particular one from JuNxtaposition. The woman who makes them there is named Jeanne, and she’s quite lovely — she e-mailed me to let me know the particular bracelet I wanted was no longer available, but she would be very accommodating about a new one. You can scroll through her site and order a very specific bracelet — seeing the exact letters, colors, or symbols you’ll receive. I ordered a couple of them at Christmas and was in a bit of a hurry to have them shipped, so I couldn’t custom-order, but that option is available, too.
I just think it’s a darling gift for any woman in your life who is a writer. Or who ever used a typewriter. Or who loves antiques. Or loves bracelets. Or all of the above. (That would be me!)
Now I’m going to go put on my favorite Christmas gift to myself. …
