Hex Nut Expansion Bracelet

Sunshine slants through the slats in the old tool shed

as you turn over the bits and bobs in a weathered box.

Deep in the corner, a glint catches your eye.

Amazed, you draw forth a bracelet.

Now iridescent hex nuts circle your wrist,

each centered on a luminous bead and a looped silver spiral.

As your weekend unfolds you plug in to the playful side

of everyday objects. Six-sided fun, here we come.

Funky Body Décor is a line of one-of-a-kind, wildly original, wearable art-jewellery to Decorate Your Body! Each piece is hand-made by me with love and laughter, and, like any piece of art, is titled and signed.

Choose your favourite from my unconventional charm bracelets; add an extension to wear your bracelet as a necklace; add a pair of coordinating — or clashing! — earrings!
