Though I love this unique design by Alexis Bittar, I think all those charms moving on my arm would drive me slightly nuts. But if you are a charm bracelet aficionado, this is a cool new way of wearing an old favourite.

Gucci has taken the best (and possibly the worst) of the 1970s and run with in their past few collections. This bracelet would have looked right at home in that decade. It’s made with base metal literally filled in with coloured seed beads in a pierced heart design. According to Gucci’s description, this is meant to actually be worn across the top of the hand (so much for typing … or using your fingers in a useful way): The pierced heart motif that is seen throughout the Spring Summer 2017 ready-to-wear collection is reinterpreted as a palm cuff. This new fashion accessory fits over the hand and around the palm.”
This sells for USD$870. Lady of leisure status not included.
