When I think of a bangled bracelet images of ancient cultures surrounded in mystery and intrigue come into my head. Okay, I have been watching a lot of Agatha Christie’s Poirot lately and the orient settings may be influencing me a bit, but truly I love the feel of a bangled bracelet. Whether they are made of metals, wood or plastics, they have a musical sound as they slip 'round and 'round your wrist. I adore stacking them to increase the colors and sound. They come in so many shapes and colors and can be matched with everything or be a secret statement only you know about.
Acturally, bangles are very ancient decorations, dating back over 5,000 years ago. This 4,500 BC figure was found in 1926 by Ernest MacKay in a province of Sindh, Pakistan. She is called the “Dancing Girl” and is nude except for her bangles. In 1973, a British archaeologist, Mortimer Wheeler said this was his favorite statue and describes her:
"She's about fifteen years old I should think, not more, but she stands there with bangles all the way up her arm and nothing else on. A girl perfectly, for the moment, perfectly confident of herself and the world. There's nothing like her, I think, in the world."
I think that about sums up how exactly how I feel when wearing a bangled bracelet - Confident and nothing like it in the world!
