Introducing Lady Lu Jewels
Lady Lu Jewels Skull & Swarovski Bracelet ReviewI was really pleased when Lena agreed to send me a bracelet to review on this blog, especially because it happened to be one from her current skull and Buddha head collection...

The exact one I received was this beauty; comprising 925 silver links and three Swarovski-littered beads (the blue beads are also Swarovski, while the skull seems almost ceramic). It arrived in a rather attractive, velvet-touch draw-cord gift bag.

I have to say; when I first removed the bracelet from it's bag and noticed it is strung together with elastic, I was worried. I can be pretty accident prone and so I was concerned that one tiny knock would send beads flying everywhere. The elastic used is of exceptional quality though; a durable, transparent tube which would take much effort to snap (I may need to ask Lena where she sources this elastic for my own craft exploits - it's genuinely fantastic).
I was also a little concerned that the Swarovskis would fall off through wear but the beads in which they sit are incredibly well made - they aren't going anywhere!
Here's another picture of the bracelet, this time on my wrist (yes...that is a Funeral for a Friend tattoo - I had that inked almost 10 years ago now. *Feeling old!*)
I really like that Lena takes custom orders too. I quite fancy myself a rainbow bracelet completely comprised of skull heads (ooh!), or a Swarovski bead-skull-Swarovski bead-skull (etc.) design. I'm definitely going to have to enquire about prices for such!
Here's a few more of Lena's "Sick!" (awesome) creations, available through the Lady Lu Jewels Facebook page. All images below were taken by Lena.
