Bower Bracelet
Does Bower produce a Bracelet for bead charms?

No, because we feel that there are so many bracelets already out there to choose from.
We want to offer you products that you will not find anywhere else and that is why we have chosen to concentrate on making unique and special beads for you.
Later on down the track we may add other Jewellery items such as pendants, ear-rings and rings but right now bead charms are our main focus.

I like your beads but do not already have a bracelet, where can I find one?

If you search the web for any of the brand names we list on this web site you will be able to find other bead manufactures and their bracelets and necklaces.
It is mainly a matter of personal taste, however a
word of caution - most manufactures want you to only purchase their beads for their bracelet.  To ensure this they may make the bracelet a certain thickness that will not allow other beads made by other companies to fit. (I ask you, where is the fun in that?)
To give you an idea Troll have the smallest guage bracelets (therefore all beads brands will fit their bracelets) while Lovelinks have the largest guage (so that not many other bead brands will fit), and the well known Pandora brand is somewhere in the middle.
I hope that helps and good luck with your bracelet search!


How should I clean my beads?
Cleaning tips
If your beads become dull a quick rub over with an impregnated silver polishing cloth is generally all that is needed to restore the sparkle.
At Bower we do not recommend the use of creams or dips. Our beads have been especially treated to highlight the fine detail we are known for.  This involves a process of antiquing or oxidising the silver or gold to leave a darker colour in the recesses of the design. This intentional colouring allows you to appreciate the fine detail more readily and cremes or dips will remove it.
Impregnated polishing cloths are available from most large supermarkets.
