Wrist showcasing permanent bracelets from Love Linked x Winifred Grace

What is permanent jewelry?
Also referred to as forever jewelry, endless chain, zapped jewelry, or welded bracelets,
permanent jewelry 
is a unique way to honor any commitment you might be making whether to a loved one or yourself.

How does it work?
We offer a limited variety of solid 14k gold and 14k gold-filled chains for you to choose from.
If you want to personalize your bracelet, choose from our selection of charms which can easily be added.

Once we customize the chain length to fit your wrist or ankle,
we then connect the two ends with a tiny jump ring and weld it closed.

Because it is welded, this means there is no clasp.

However, if at any point you decide you no longer wish to wear the bracelet, it can be easily clipped off. 

How long does it take? 
We can service 1-3 people in a 30-minute time period; 4-6 people in an hour.
If you have more than 6 people please book 2 appointments back to back.

If at any point you have to remove your jewelry for any reason (MRI, surgery, sports), it can be clipped off with scissors or clippers.
