How to put on a bangle bracelet.

Jewelry Hack- Chunky Plastic Bangle Bracelets

Having issues getting that super cute hard, plastic bangle bracelet over your wrist?  Wouldn’t you like to be assured that it has nothing to do with wrist size.  I repeat, it has nothing do to with your wrist size.  No, you don’t need to lose ten pounds to fit into that cute bangle bracelet.  It is simply an operator error.  But never fear, this trick to getting these babies on is going to blow your mind.  A fashion jewelry hack, of sorts.

Our Assistant Copywriter Melanie was our proud guinea pig for this tutorial.  There is no doubt that she has the tiniest wrists among us all here at Heirloom Finds, so it was an easy choice.  And, guess what, those plastic resin bangles did not fit over her wrists, either!

Alright, so let’s cut to the chase.  How do you get these things on?!

First thing you want to do is turn the bangle to the side at about a 45 degree angle, give or take, as demonstrated in the picture below.  If you are putting it on your left arm, you turn the bangle to the right.  Right arm, turn to the left.

Then you slip the bangle onto your hand while it is turned at an angle, and slide it in between your thumb and pointer finger.

Once the bangle gets down to your wrist area, turn it so it is facing up.

Happy New Year

Happy New Year, My Dears!

What a year we have had here at Heirloom Finds!  We traveled all over the U.S and beyond in search of the best and brightest items the fashion jewelry world had to offer.  We did a complete overhaul of our Heirloom Finds brand and website, and created a new sister site for our beads and charms, cleverly titled Heirloom Charms.  We launched our vintage collections of both charms and fashion jewelry.  We hired FIVE additional staff members, bringing our close-knit company to a grand total of 10!  Our warehouse, that we thought we would never fill when we moved in, is now busting at the seams, and we could not be more pleased to have that problem!  And we have you, our loyal shoppers, to thank for our amazing success in 2013.

Like many of you, we have compiled our list of resolutions for the New Year.  One of our many goals is to communicate to our loyal shoppers more candidly and frequently.   There is no better place or way to start then by answering some of your frequently asked questions.

You asked, we answered!

Q:  Where are you located?  Are you in China?

A: We are an all-American company, located in Vienna, West Virginia.  Yes, you heard that right, West Virginia.  Let’s Go, Mountaineers!

Q: Why in the world are you in West Virginia?

A: First and foremost, our families are here.  Sure, we could have nested in LA or New York, but we are e-retailers.  We can be anywhere.   So why not be close to the ones you love?! The lower cost of living is pretty nice, too.

Q: What does someone from West Virginia know about fashion?

A: Although we (backwoods folks) are not a fan of shoes, we West Virginians love to accessorize!  Just kidding.  But really, we have a highly educated, and diverse staff here at Heirloom Finds.  We have traveled the world, lived all over the United States, and in the end decided that ‘home’ was in the beautiful Appalachian foothills of West Virginia.  Trust us, if there is one thing we KNOW, it is fashion and jewelry.

Q: I saw the same item at elsewhere, but it was three times the price!  Why are your prices so much lower?

A:  Well, because we believe in charging what the items are worth.  No more and no less.  We blame it on our small town friendliness.

Alright, that is it for now.  If you have more questions for us, we would be happy to answer. Just put them in the comment section below.  We hope you have an amazing 2014.  We look forward to seeing more of you!
