Express Youself with Bangled Bracelets

Posted by Cindy Schreiber on 12th Apr 2016

When I think of a bangled bracelet images of ancient cultures surrounded in mystery and intrigue come into my head. Okay, I have been watching a lot of Agatha Christie’s Poirot lately and the orient settings may be influencing me a bit, but truly I love the feel of a bangled bracelet. Whether they are made of metals, wood or plastics, they have a musical sound as they slip 'round and 'round your wrist.  I adore stacking them to increase the colors and sound. They come in so many shapes and colors and can be matched with everything or be a secret statement only you know about.   

Dancing Girl

Acturally, bangles are very ancient decorations, dating back over 5,000 years ago. This 4,500 BC figure was found in 1926 by Ernest MacKay in a province of Sindh, Pakistan. She is called the “Dancing Girl” and is nude except for her bangles. In 1973, a British archaeologist, Mortimer Wheeler said this was his favorite statue and describes her:

"She's about fifteen years old I should think, not more, but she stands there with bangles all the way up her arm and nothing else on. A girl perfectly, for the moment, perfectly confident of herself and the world. There's nothing like her, I think, in the world."

I think that about sums up how exactly how I feel when wearing a bangled bracelet - Confident and nothing like it in the world!
