Metal bracelets are everywhere. Whether it is a bangle or a cuff, metal is definitely heating up the summer scene. What is great about this style is the versatility. The metal bracelet is my type of accessory because you can wear it everywhere from work to a night out. The most interesting piece above is the Jensen Conroy cuff. The laced wrapped metal reminds me of Madonna's 80s laced gloves. I love how this piece mixes textured lace with smooth metal.

Once I realized metal bracelets were in style, I went through my jewelry box and was shocked to see how many metal pieces I actually own. It is time to take these pieces out of hibernation.
Are you wearing metal?


Bought at an estate sale for $5


Bought at various places for under $20 each
