There's something magical about the combination of hematite and gold. Add an industrial inspired design and you've got a glamorous little bangle with a rock and roll edge. This is large enough to slip on the wrist and light enough to make a bunch and stack them on your wrist. Change up the color palette to suit your style. (Tip: You can these u-shaped components to make earrings, bracelet links, or connect them together to make scales for a cascading design, they're incredibly versatile.)
