Did you know that beaded glass bracelets are very "in" right now? While these types of bracelets have been around for quite some time, it is only recently that they have really come into popularity. Whether you've always admired these bracelets or just want to get in on the trend, there are a few things you should know before you take the plunge and buy your first bracelet. After all, you want to get the very best beaded glass bracelet you can, and following these tips will help you with that.
Many Companies Take Custom Orders
One of the first things to know- something you'll be glad to know- is that many companies offering glass beaded bracelets actually take custom orders. What this means is that, more often than not, you're not relegated to simply buying a stock bracelet off a shelf or website. Instead, you can help to create the bracelet of your dreams, the one you've always wanted.
By all means, browse through the stock available from different sellers, but, if you don't find something that's "just right," don't be afraid to seek out jewelers who take and make custom orders so that you can get exactly what you want.
Careful Shipping is Important
Whether you order a custom bracelet or a more widely available bracelet, you'll want to keep in mind that these bracelets can be quite fragile. After all, they are made of glass!
While they typically stand up quite well to regular wear and the occasional drop, they need to be shipped with care in order to arrive to you in good condition. As such, make sure that the company you buy from has careful shipping methods in place. Also, be sure the company has a policy that will allow you to return or exchange your bracelet if it does not arrive to you in good condition.
Proper Care Can Make a Huge Difference
Once you receive your bracelet and are satisfied with it, make sure you stay happy with your purchase! The easiest way to do this is by properly caring for your glass bracelet.
Most companies will provide you with care instructions when they ship your purchase. Be sure to follow these instructions exactly. Also remember some good general rules for caring for glass jewelry, such as keeping it in a jewelry box or other protective container when not in use and avoiding wearing it in the pool or shower/bath.
If you can keep these tips in mind, there's no reason you can't get a great glass bracelet and enjoy it for years to come!
