The coiling snake lends itself well to upper arm bracelets. Whether the design has a scale-like pattern and faceted gem eyes or the bracelet is thin-gauge wire with coiled ends, you may just walk like an Egyptian while sporting this twisting armlet. Memory wire is a convenient base for coiled designs.
Think chevrons, circles, triangles, concentric squares and more. Geometric-inspired shapes have been a key element on runways for multiple seasons and haven't lost their esteemed position. Futuristic and scientific (including mathematical) inspiration continues to mesh with fashion for intriguing aesthetics.
A metal sheet base provides room to design. Punch holes in the base to dangle spikes, crosses or other favorite drop components. Cutout patterns are a chic option as well as crystal accents. Enamel the bracelet with bright color to match your summer wardrobe. Thinner bangles or cuffs--often considered Greek-goddess inspired--squeeze to conform to your arm. Bracelet bases make designing convenient with a pre-existing cuff to start from. Wire-wrapping is another popular option for more intricate designs.
|Fringe and Tassels
This free-swinging trend is not over yet. Fringe is flattering on upper arms, potentially blocking any tiny bit of "bulge" securing an armlet may cause. Make tassels and fringe from all your favorite materials including leather, seed beads and more.

Whether you prefer the bracelet to stretch, wrap or lightly squeeze, your upper arm bracelet is a must-have fashion accessory as seasonal temperatures rise.
