    Default Two New Bracelets

    I'm a big fan of pearl bracelets - I like my pearls where I can look at them all day while I work!

    Recently, I realised that I really needed some peach-pink bracelets to go with a few outfits. When the latest PP sale went up, I couldn't make up my mind - but fortunately, they were such good value, I ended up buying two! I was rapt when I opened them - the quality of the metallic ones is amazing and were a real favourite at the office.

    Actually, the colour of the metallic is very hard to gauge as it changes in different lights from a delicate pink through to a pale gold.

    The more pink graduated strand has some lovely blue overtones. Paired together they are even better (although I need to master the catches one-handed if I'm not going to be late for work trying to fasten the two of them!)

    Since I love looking at everyones photos, here are mine:

    They're lovely pearls. How easy are they to put on and take off? I'm not great with bracelet clasps one handed, which is why I've never bought a pearl bracelet.

    Bracelet clasps are what husbands are for. Or daughters. Or friends.

    Thanks all for the comments - I'm probably better than most at doing up one-handed bracelet clasps, as have always worn them since I was a teenager. However, although I was familiar with the types of clasps on these bracelets, I hadn't had either type on a bracelet before. I'm finding the fishhook one a bit tricky, but think I will get it mastered after another try or two.

    Oh, I hadn't heard of those Katbran - what a good idea! I hope Amazon won't mind me borrowing a picture of one...
