  • Our Signature Work - Opera Bracelets

     

    Opera Bracelets are jewelry made in the USA with a unique narrative design that help passionate, fun-loving opera fans stay connected with their favorite works. These engaging pieces of wearable art are designed especially to tell the stories of the classic operas. Elements are arranged in linear order from prologue to finale with hand selected beads and charms symbolizing the characters, arias and events taken directly from the opera's libretto. Opera Bracelets help you "Remember the Moment"!

    Here is an example: The La Boheme Opera Bracelet

    A red heart symbolizes Musetta and Marcello' s Love. Tiny beads create the earrings Musetta will sell to buy medicine for Mimi.

    La Boheme "Inspired By..." Bracelets

    In addition, the "Inspired By..." bracelet line celebrates individual opera arias, events or characters opera.

    Mimi and Moonlight is inspired by the love scene in Act 1 of La Boheme.

     

    Musetta’s Waltz is inspired by the famous music in Act 2 of La Boheme.

    "I received the La Boheme Opera Bracelet for Christmas, and I've worn it already 4 times. I love it so much! It's not only pretty and elegant, but it also tells the story of the opera. I have thoroughly enjoyed showing it to people and explaining the meaning of each bead. This is so clever and smart and creative. I'll definitely be buying more! Really just a perfect gift for an opera lover.​" - Claire

    The Carmen Opera Bracelet

    The Carmen Opera Bracelet

    Remember the passion, remember the drama!

    The passionate love triangle of the wild gypsy woman, the jealous soldier who loses everything to love her and the Toreador that will win her is one of the world's most beloved operas.

     

    A fiery red bead represents passionate, seductive Carmen; a red pressed glass flower is the gypsy charm she employs to entice Jose. A bird charm evokes the “rebellious bird” of the Habanera.

    Jose is a gold glass round bead until, in his madness, he is transformed into a crackled glass bead to signify he has quite profoundly and literally cracked.

     

    The Carmen Opera Bracelet spiral chart

     

    Toreador Escamillo is symbolized by sparking gold glass faceted bead, chosen for the tradition of calling a toreadors’ suit the suit of lights. A bull charm evokes the famous Toreador Song.

    Jose’s final act of madness is indicated by a bead with a red core over laid with cracked red foil to indicate his cracked mental state has led to the final crisis and violence. Red droplets indicate Carmen’s death. A toreador charm symbolizes the victorious Escamillo.

    The Magic Flute Opera Bracelet

    The Magic Flute

    Opera Bracelet

    Mozart's fairy tale for all ages!

    Mozart's story of good and evil, darkness and light, and the trials to enlightenment or reward is one of the world’s favorite operas for all ages: The Magic Flute. 

     

    A pyramid charm sets the tale in mythic Egypt; a birdcage charm represents birdman Papageno; a cameo the portrait that entrances Tamino.

    Cobalt blue crystals and opalescent stars and moon represent the Queen of the Night, while a smaller pink opalescent bead is her daughter Pamina.

    The Magic Flute Opera Bracelet spiral chart

    Wise Sarastro is symbolized by a large luminous white cat’s eye and the 3 guiding boys are small sky blue beads.
    Various heart beads evoke the power of love that flows through the entire opera.

    A long gold bead represents the magic flute, along with a red fiery bead and blue droplet bead it represents Pamina and Tamino’s success in their trials of fire and water.

    Tiny bells signify Papageno’s magic bells. And a radiant golden sun symbolizes the triumph of light over darkness.

    Violetta Valery Bracelet Inspired by La Traviata

    Violetta Valéry Bracelet

    "Inspired by..." Verdi's La Traviata

    The Violetta Valéry Bracelet is based on the unforgettable character from La Traviata by Verdi. Consumed by a life of pleasure and reaching the end of her days the beautiful but fragile courtesan opens herself to the possibility of true love and all the joy and pain it entails.

    Glass pearls, hearts and flowers reflect Violetta's delicacy, while hints of purple symbolize her name. A camellia charm signifies the flower she gives Alfredo at the beginning of their love affair and a cameo is the portrait that she gives him to remember her by upon her death. A large heart with purple stones represents "love" which is engraved on the back in English, French (the setting of the opera) and Italian (the language of the opera).

    Cendrillon Opera Bracelet (Cinderella)

    Nicole R.

    The Cendrillon Opera Bracelet

    I first heard of Opera Bracelets when I was in college studying voice. I’m pretty picky when it comes to what jewelry I purchase; I want what I wear to mean something. So when I discovered Opera Bracelets, I was thrilled! Each piece is so beautifully thought out and crafted. The bracelet itself tells the story and evokes the emotions of the opera it represents, even down to the order and colors of the beads and charms. They fit so well with every outfit I own, whether it be formal or casual.

     

    Opera is such a big part of my life, and it’s amazing to get to combine my passion for opera with my love of jewelry!

    Die Fledermaus Opera Bracelet

    Susan N.

    The Die Fledermaus Opera Bracelet

    I had to inform you that I an in love! This is one of the most gorgeous bracelets that I have ever seen! I got tears in my eyes when I opened the box (which, by the way, are packaged beautifully) and I very much enjoy the description cards. I have to tell you that, honestly, I was shanking with joy and in awe as I was it on for the first time. Words cannot truly describe how glorious these bracelets are in person!

     

    Thank you for your talent and gifted imagination in designing these most amazing accessories and also for your cute, little "Thank You" gift! I shall most definitely enjoy the contents.

    Aida Opera Bracelet

    Jeanne C.

    The Aida Opera Bracelet

    My first opera bracelet, Aida, arrived today. It was a gift from “me to me" and I absolutely love it! Thank you for the very prompt shipment.

     

    Aida was the very first opera I saw at Lyric Opera of Chicago. I’ve been a season subscriber for approximately 57 years, and have expierenced some glorious operas over those years. So, the Aida bracelet is especially meaningful for me. What unique wonderful creativity!

     

    This certainly will not be my last purchase at your website, and trust me, all five of the children will be getting gift “hints” from me for future special occasions. This bracelet will be one of my dearest treasures!

    Un Bel Di Bracelet Inspired by Madama Butterfly

    Karen N. S.

    The Un Bel Di Bracelet inspired by Madama Butterfly

    Oh my goodness!! I just received my Un Bel Di bracelet in the mail!

     

    Exquisite is the first word that comes to mind. From the sweet treat, to the lovely box, to the discovery of the bracelet nestled beautifully inside, the "opening act" was an experience in and of itself.


    The bracelet is more beautiful than I could have anticipated. Pictures do not do justice to the details of the beads and charms. I have a feeling that this will not be my last Opera Bracelet purchase!

  • Frequently Asked Questions

    Do you make all these bracelets yourself?

    I make most bracelets myself, but when I cant keep up, my long time creative friends help me out. These are talented women in the USA. I have no plans to farm out assembly to low cost producers in other countries.

    What materials are used in the bracelets?

    Opera Bracelets are created from stainless steel memory wire, glass, metal and ceramic beads with pewter charms. Memory wire stretches and springs back to its original shape, unless crushed or bent, allowing it to fit nearly anyone.

    Where do the beads and charms come from?

    The pewter charms I use are made in the USA. The glass beads I use mainly come from the Czech Republic, a country that has specialized in making glass beads for over 200 years, with some crystals coming from Austria. Metal Cloisonné beads come from China, where they have been an art form since the 1300s.

    Will an Opera Bracelet fit me?

    Memory wire is technically "one size fits all". Opera Bracelets wrap around the wrist and expand to fit the wearer, so customers with any size wrist can wear Opera Bracelets comfortably. In addition, there is no clasp on an Opera Bracelet, so you can put on your bracelet without assistance. Watch the video below to see more detail about putting on and taking off your Opera Bracelet and a demonstration about how they tell an opera’s story.

    What will the package look like when it arrives? 

    Each Opera Bracelet comes shipped in a drawstring organza bag within a kraft jewelry gift box. A synopsis chart card showing the relationship between the story and the beads and charms in included for "Full Story" Opera Bracelets or an explanatory card for "Inspired By..." Bracelets.

     

    I will provide a gift card upon request at no additional charge for that special opera fan in your life receiving Opera Bracelets!

    Do you have bracelets for works other than opera?

    I have created and sell special "Full Story" Opera Bracelets and "Inspired By..." bracelets for classic literary works, such as "Les Miserables", "The Phantom of the Opera" and "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz", plus special Christmas bracelets for holiday favorites like "The Nutcracker Ballet", "A Christmas Carol" and Handel's "Messiah"!

    Are Opera Bracelets for me?

    If you are a passionate, fun loving opera fan who loves unique handmade jewelry or are looking for a special gift for the opera fan in your life, I invite you to visit my online store and explore the Opera Bracelets collection!
