Fashionable Stretch Jewelry?
January 5, 2009 § 10 Comments
I’ll admit it…there was a time when elastic jewelry conjured images of young girls and plastic beads. Times have changed, and so has elastic jewelry.
Stretch jewelry, as it is now referred to, has stepped into the limelight once again, and this time with a flash! The materials used to create stretch jewelry are less obvious. No white elastic string here! The cords vary in size and colors, and come in transparent as well.
Easy to slip into or out of, stretch bracelets slip into and out of popularity frequently, always as costume jewelry. There is, however, one area where costume jewelry and bridge jewelry are intertwined.
Jewelry for those with special requirements of their jewelry. They may have one of many issues that makes wearing jewelry difficult, but still choose to wear it. I am repairing two bracelets with a newer stretch material (I’m hoping this works well for her). This is only one way I’ve learned to consider the needs of our customers. I’m grateful for the lessons.
