I love bracelets. Simple, classy, shiny, bright, and low maintenance. You also can never have too many. I wear mine all the time and never take them off (literally) as they are a perfect touch to every outfit and event (including working out and bedtime). I am especially found of my new bracelet (thank you, Christmakkuh elf, Ken), the gold Maggie Bracelet from Castor and Pollux.
This bracelet comes in a variety of options: bronze, gold plated, and solid gold. You can also add additional birth stones and engraving. The perfect gift!
Maggie bracelets are an original item from Castor and Pollux, one of my favorite spots in all of NYC. Located in the West Village (238 West 10 Street), this gem of a store sells everything from candles to leather goods to clothes to scarves to jewelry INCLUDING the Maggie. If you have a minute or two, stop by, but expect to leave with a bag of goodies.
The owner, Kerrilyn Pamer (a fellow native Oregonian!!) is a doll. She explains that the Maggie bracelets originate from her Aunt Maggie who wore them for over 40 years before she passed them on as a family heirloom. Maggie wore them as a set of three, two thick and one thin, and her arrival was always heralded by the bracelets’ melodic jingle (LOVE!).
If you don’t live in NYC, you can visit the store online, and get inspired by Kerrilyn on her blog. And you can follow her on twitter (@castorpolluxnyc), too! Enjoy! And jump on the Maggie bracelet bandwagon!
