    Ha, exactly! Ordered one of the bracelets for myself and I have never liked a bracelet except my Shaun Leane leather/silver horn one, and now it finally found a brother.

    On a side note - I used to not care for jewelry at all, but I have slowly come to realize that accessorizing is a good way to put a bit of excitement in the mega-boring tee/shorts uniform NY summers force me into.

    Anyone have any suggestions on a simple silver chainlink bracelet? Something similar to the WM fine curb chain. Any help is appreciated!

    i wear a wm dogtag chain. i think if you want jewelry you should be prepared to spend a little bit more, little bit more being wm, because you arent going to be buying a ton of it and if you take care of it there's no reason silver shouldnt last you the rest of your life

    A suggestion for a different direction regarding men's (and women's) jewelry:

    Small jewelry stores may have an in-house designer or carry a number of independent artisans. There is some great, imaginative stuff going on out there. Also, these pieces are at the price point where you can work with a metalsmith and have something made. My one plea regarding this is DO NOT have them copy something you saw from another maker. Respect the original maker's ideas and patronize them.

    I am a firm believer in educating one's eye- look, look and look- shops, tear out magazine pages to stick up, books, online, wherever. I love this process and consumption doesn't have to be the end result. I think you will be much happier with whatever you buy- art, furniture, clothing. The internet is a wonderful resource but it has eclipsed "boots on the ground" and lead to assumptions that all is available there.

    Besides, your search will get you out into the world. I've had wonderful experiences that were peripheral to my original goal.

    Does anyone know what kind of closures the Werkstatt bracelets have? I'm about to order but I can't find a picture that shows the clasp clearly. Thank you!

    They have many different type of closure, so be more specific of which one you are looking.

    just bought a new one, the mixed/wild chain one.
    I was pretty smashed but somehow it managed to fall off whilst i was out. Because it doesn't lock, it relies on the fact that there is only a tiny indent on the piece of metal that slides into the clip. If by chance they cross though it does fall off

    make sense?

    i have a w:m double ring that i would like to get widened, have no experience with it. anyone has done it, how much does it usually cost?

    Its a pretty basic procedure that any goldsmith can help you with, it makes the job a lot easier if there are no stones, no cracks and the soldering was done well in the first place. Can either be done with a mandrel/triblet and a rawhide mallet or a ring stretcher. Shouldn't cost you to much, maybe 50 bucks. Good luck!

    @yay and when handing the ring over, make sure to clearly tell the goldsmith not to polish the ring! I'm speaking out of experience unfortunately.

    Im in the process of ordering a ring by Kjeld Jewelry Berlin.
    So far contacting them via mail and telephone has been a pleasant experience. This is the item Ive set my eyes on:
