Etsy + Strong Aussie dollar = irresistible temptation

I have been eyeing off this style of bracelet for aaaages.

What can I say? They are a bit quirky and bit old style... AND they incorporate my love of all things type.

In any case, with the Australian dollar as strong as it is, and Etsy just so damned accessible, well eventually I was going to get my act together...

And so, after a lot of trawling, I found Sue at HauteKeys selling these great custom-made bracelets, made from vintage typewriter keys and I knew the time was right.

I made my purchase, she emailed me a few options/combinations of keys, I made my decision, and a little under 3 weeks later my bracelet arrived.

And I LOVE it. Cool huh?

This is a beautiful braclet and I love how it fits you perfectly too! It's a lovely reminder of what links your loves, typeface, your blog, your art...a lovely piece of inspiration!

Ohhhh...very nice. I have been thinking the same thing, ie that now would be a good time to buy some of those things I've been eyeing off for a while. Hopefully it will last a little bit longer until I pay off some bills that can't be ignored!
