Vintage Clampers

with 2 comments

I have a predilection for vintage clampers, those hinged bracelets that rely on the tension from the hinge to stay closed (although some have clasps as well). Vintage clampers can be found in just about every material imaginable: Bakelite, Lucite, plastic, silvertone, enamel, celluloid. Some are abstract, Art Deco, or Art Nouveau, some even come in animal shapes. Some are flashy and rhinestone encrusted and some are mod and minimalist. I love them all.

As one can imagine, there are hundreds of vintage clampers on eBay and etsy, but we saved you the trouble of wading through all the junk. Below are some of the best clamper bracelets we found this week. Click on each image to see the listing.
