Dear Mr. Gable {Review}

Time for some shameless self-promotion 🙂 Dandy readers, welcome to my tiny Etsy shop, Dear Mr. Gable.  The name of my shop comes from my favorite classic actress, Judy Garland, and her song “Dear Mr. Gable” that is just so sweet.

This latest hobby is really more of a trial-run right now, to see if there is still a market for beaded watches.  I’ve wanted one of these for the longest time, and couldn’t find exactly what I wanted in a beaded watch, so I decided to make my own, and loved how they turned out.

Beaded watches can be so pretty, but they can also be too clunky, scratchy, heavy, and kitschy, in my opinion.  I wanted to make a watch that could be dressed up or down and compliment practically any wardrobe, while still being simple and sophisticated, as well as extremely affordable.

These watches are being sold for $11.50, and if you’d like a watch done for Mother’s Day, purchase this week and I can guarantee it will be at your door (or your mother’s door) in time!  Choose from either a smooth watch face (on the right) or a dotted watch face (on the left).

All watches are made with a strong, stretchy jewelry cord, and prepared so as not to stretch out with time, but still allowing you to easily take it on and off your wrist. These are made with a double row of beads, though I can make a watch with a single row if you prefer, and indicate in a message to me.  Here are the colors available:
colors smallAll watches are made to order.  You can choose a wrist circumference size, but also remember that the band is stretchy.

Medium 6.5”- 7”
Large 7”- 7.5”
XLarge 7.5″ – 8”

I was in the middle of some major “fall cleaning” this past week, and I came across a bag of jewelry I had in my bottom drawer.  It’s the bag that has traveled around the world with me and holds some of my most beloved pieces.  As I was going through that bag, I came across a charm bracelet that a good friend of mine had bought for me when I was still in high school.  It made me nostagic and reminded me of some great experiences that I had with wonderful people.

I thought again of that piece of jewelry the other day when I received a package in the mail from Chamilia jewelry.

 I was sent the Silver Snap Bracelet with the Snowflake bead, in anticipation for the winter holiday season.  The bracelet that I received is like a charm bracelet for grown-ups — it’s classy and timeless, and the beads can changed depending on the event, season, or new experiences.  Silver Snap Bracelet

Snowflake Bead

My favorite part of this Chamilia bracelet is that the bead easily can be added on, but the “twisting action” keeps the charm from falling off.  Of course, as soon as I pulled the bracelet and charm out of the box, my 18-month-old son decided that he wanted to try it on himself.  He snatched it out of my hand right after I added the bead (meaning that the clasp wasn’t shut yet), and I was sure that the charm was going to flying off — not so much!  It stopped right at the end.  Amazing!

The Chamilia collection gives some suggestions for starting a bracelet, and they have a variety of beads for many different occasions and experiences:

Bump Set Spike

“Honor” Military Tag

Lighthouse

Japan

Modern Glam – Blue Swarovski

I was highly impressed with the quality of both the bracelet and the charm.  It felt comfortable enough to wear everyday but was also classy enough to wear on a night out.  Chamilia also offers earrings and necklaces, and many of the pieces include Swarovski crystal, as shown above.

A bracelet and beads from Chamilia would also be a great personalized gift for anyone this holiday season, and I would highly recommend the pieces.
