During the Victorian era, slide bracelets were made from old keepsake jewelry parts, stickpin heads, rings, small pins and buttons. They became known as "slide" bracelets because of the movement of their elements on a chain. Ours is a sequence of Victorian era jewelry parts, enameled and set with colored crystal and vintage stones. Mounted on the clasp is a tiny book locket. Conveying the keepsake melange of the originals, it is finished in gold, silver and bronze.

***This bracelet is available in 8" for an additional $30 *** 

Note: The color of the cameo in this bracelet may be either fawn or black. 

When vintage looked back on the antique past...a little background... 
Bracelets as fashion took hold in the early 1900s. McCalls magazine commented that "novelty" bracelets had become acceptable ornaments for daytime wear. The editor promoted gathering bits and bobs and mismatched jewelry parts to string as bracelets and to share this pastime among friends. She further remarked that slide bracelets served to "remind us of the tastes and fashion of our grandmothers."
