A-Wristing Developments

Your waist is a cinch. Finding a new style for your neck? You’ve got it collared. But figuring out other ways to dress up that space between your palm and forearm is proving to be wristy business.

Show your hand with cute new finds from some of our favorite local artists.

Color Me Strappy
Fans thought only one thing could improve Christy Chung’s chic, vintage fabric clutches – a strap. Done. ccdoodle’s new wristlets (just going up on etsy this weekend) are just a bit smaller, but Chung’s mix of playful prints and vibrant colors make picking one up a snap decision.
$49 on ccdoodle’s etsy shop.

The Inside Stack
Some days you feel like a stone cold fox. Other days, you’re looking for not-so-heavy metal. But you’ll always feel like a rock star in Pure Joy Adornments’ new bracelet trios (debuted this week) featuring delicate links wrapped around leather or suede paired with a variety of semi-precious stones such as pyrite, quartz, and opal strung on 24k gold.
Prices start at $70. See more and get order information through  Pure Joy Adornment's facebook page.

In the Loop
It’s not a stretch to say machinemachine’s new Little Hands line will be one of the most unique items in your accessories drawer. Shannon Hiramoto takes vintage embroidery and frames it in retro watches for a bracelet that deserves more than a little face time.
$36 on machinemachine’s online shop.
