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.
