889 - Storymaker
I bought this bracelet from Lebeado in West Jesmond. You pay by the letter, then string the bracelet yourself.
The idea is snitched from Ira Lightman, who is a friend and conceptual poet - a description he threaded onto a necklace and wears to his performances.
I thought, for my purposes, a bracelet would be more discreet. I wear this around town as a vicar might wear a dog-collar, to express my desire to be a 'storymaker' for people. It's loose enough to slip forward on my wrist if I want to increase the chances of people noticing it, and pokes out of my sleeve coquettishly otherwise.
The only drawback is that sometimes the 's' gets stuck on the fastener, revealing the rather more alarming label 'TORYMAKER' instead.
