After all the searching I did the other day on 1940’s film noir and telephones, I was delighted to discover this wickedly wonderful charm bracelet designed by Kerry Turner . It never ceases to amaze me what incredible things I can find on the internet when looking for vintage inspiration. Ms. Turner describes her bracelet as "a darkly humorous tribute to the double-crossing dames of Film Noir." She named it "the Dame was Loaded".
It is sterling silver with assorted beads. The charms include a black heart, a gun, a hand of cards, a perfume bottle, a pair of handcuffs and, of course, a telephone!
This is one fab bracelet and there are plenty more unique styles on her website to chose from. She’ll even design a custom one for you with a personalized theme. What more could a dame ask for?
