Works for me Wednesday....how to put on a bracelet one-handed!


For my birthday last year, John got me a beautiful necklace with a matching bracelet. I immediately put on the necklace, but was unable to get the bracelet on one-handed. John's fingers just could not open the tiny, delicate clasp.

So finally, a few months after the fact, I was able to get it on!

Here is what I did:
I took a large piece of clear packing tape and taped down the end of the bracelet to my wrist. I was then able to open the clasp with my left hand and hook it in...without the bracelet moving at all! I was so excited!

Another good tip is those Clever Clasp thingies -- the magnetic things that let you easily hook your necklaces and bracelets. I've never bought anything that was once in an informercial but I saw these at Discount Drug Mart and on a whim grabbed a pack. These things have changed my life. What used to take 5 minutes of crashing, muttering and groaning is now .2 seconds...done. LOOOVE them.
