Bridal stacked bracelets - still a hot fashion trend

Stacking Bracelets are continuing to be a big hit. Celebrities are now loading up their bracelets and we see it all over the magazines and on the red carpets. Stacking, layering, mixing and matching of bracelets is a fun way to add a little more personality to your outfit.

I am totally obsessed with this look. We all know the saying less is more but when it comes to stacked bracelets, more is definitely more!


Here's my take on the layered, stacked look - the mixing and matching of classic pearls, crystals and sparkly rhinestones!

The Oyster & the Pearl

Natural pearls form when an irritant, usually a parasite (the proverbial grain of sand) finds its way into an oyster. As a defense mechanism, a fluid is used to coat the irritant. Layers of this coating, also known as nacre, are deposited until a lustrous pearl is formed.

The beautiful story of the oyster and the pearl. It all starts with an oyster who gets tossed around in a raging sea. Then a grain of sand find its way inside the oyster, causing it much discomfort. The oyster cannot remove it, so it chooses to use it. At the end, the oyster creates a beautiful pearl.

Similarly, life also brings us raging storms but the true test of the character of a woman is not the strength of the storm but her ability to weather this storm. Just like the oyster creates a beautiful pearl, women create that inner foundation of strength and beauty.

 

 

 The Oyster & the Pearl

There once was an oyster
Whose story I tell,
Who found that some sand
Had got into his shell.
It was only a grain,
But it gave him great pain.
For oysters have feelings
Although they’re so plain.

Now, did he berate
The harsh working of fate
That had brought him
To such a deplorable state?
Did he curse at the government,
Cry for election,
And claim that the sea should
Have given him protection?

A guest post by my brother, Heinrich, partner and investor in a company called Mining City.

I was thinking in this time of lockdown a lot of things became clearer to me as an individual. Some of the things you may agree with and some maybe not but the reality is that somewhere out there, there's individuals who are waiting for their jobs or industries to reopen or waiting on the government
