Turn Mum Into The Star Of Her Own Wrist Party This Mother’s Day

Gift these arm candy bracelets to thank the sweetest lady in your life.

By Chris Ong      3 May 2021

Why bracelets make the perfect arm candy for every mum; they can be easily worn around the wrist with fastenings, closures or with some kind of elastic material, unlike cuffs and bangles than you might need knuckle and wrist measurements for. Reason duly explained, on to the shopping: Dip into this basket of 8 and pick one or a few delights for Mum so she can get to swish her wrist at you, not to nag, but to display her pleasure.

Help Mum relive her punk/girl rocker/teenage rebel days with this chunky accessory. But, in more grown-up, refined style. Gold Roman Studs (inspired by hardware on ancient doors) affixed on black (on the exterior) and red (on the interior) calfskin leather and fastened with a gold buckle; this is how a former riot grrrl does adulting but still-rocking style.
