Souvenir Bracelets

Bonjour! Today I wanted to share with you one of my latest obsessions (of which there are a few, mostly French-inspired!), and that is Paris souvenir bracelets! I've been keeping my eye out for affordable examples on-line and at antiques stores and have been lucky enough to find a handful. I plan to take these apart and repurpose into necklaces, so please stay tuned. In the meantime, aren't they delicious? I tried unsuccessfully searching for some historical information on these since I'm not sure when they originally came into vogue, so if anyone has any knowledge of this, it would be much appreciated. Here is my little collection, which I photographed on the pages of the 2010 Silver Lining calendar entitled, 'Paris Remembered'. Indeed.

Bon soir!


  1. Hi,

    This bracelets looks really very pretty. The colour combinations of the design used in this is quite attractive. Thanks...


  2. Hi, Rajni! Thank you for commenting on these bracelets! I love them too and can't wait to repurpose them into some new designs. :)

  3. Hi Robin
    I've been absent from blogging lately so have missed your last few posts. I really have enjoyed seeing pictures of you and your family, your home and your new dress form--love it all!!!
    Be well, Julie
