Watch Is Not The Only Thing on Men’s Wrists

Accessories are not merely a part of fashion, some timeless pieces could remain in fashion year after year.  Trendy jewelleries are not only for women any more.  In the early days, watches were the only hand accessories you could find on men’s wrists, identifying their social class and socioeconomic status.

Nowadays, there are a wide range of men’s jewelleries showing individual characters, especially bracelets.  Adding an accessory can help you to complete your outfit. “You don’t want your jewelry to wear you – you want to wear it. ” says Philip Crangi, a rising star jewellery designer in States, “Whatever you get, you should feel like yourself.”    Let’s take a peek of those popular fashion items in their wardrobe:

Leather

A deep, rich brown bit of leather on your wrist signals refined masculinity. It is a great way to express your inner rebel without going overboard.

Woven

Woven bracelets is a great way to accent any color of your outfit.  Start with something that you’ve already got hanging in your closet.

Beaded

You can effortlessly stack a variety of styles together to create a fresh look.  Alter size of bead, material and color to create your own individual combinations. [tips: Black and greyscale beads give smart, tailored outfits an edge whilst wooden versions offer a natural, outdoors charm to heritage ensembles.]

Metal

Metal bracelets – specifically ID bracelets – probably represent the most masculine wrist wear option, largely due to their military connotations. The medical bracelets can be customized with medical alert to retain a sense of masculinity and convey a notion of tasteful rebellion with their sleek appearance.

Medical ID Is Essential If You Are Allergic to Latex – World Allergy Organization

Latex allergy is common among people.  You can find them in many daily consumer products such as condoms, balloons and gloves. It is widely used in medical equipment as well. With anyone who has severe allergy, repeated exposure to latex may lead to life threatening symptoms.

 

Wear a medic alert bracelet or necklace, especially if the allergy is severe and life threatening.” suggested by the World Allergy Organization.

It is necessary to communicate with your healthcare professionals if you are under any treatment.  For instance, doctors who have been informed will wash carefully and change their outer garments of latex gloves before the treatment of a highly latex protein allergic patient.

How to Choose the Right Hanging Hardware for Your Canvas?

Canvas printings come in all sizes, from under 12 inches to over 100 inches. If you wish to hang a stretched canvas painting on a wall without framing it, you need to use two nails per side in order to hang your pictures safely and securely.

Step 1: Order a canvas printing from just $10: Click Here

Step 2: Hold the painting up to the wall in the position that you wish to hang it.

Step 3: Lower the painting 1 inch and use a pencil to create four marks directly above the painting. The marks should be one-third from each side of the painting.

Step 4: Hammer a nail into each mark, leaving about 1/2 inch of nail protruding from the wall.  A 2-inch nail should be sufficient to hang all average-sized stretched canvases that have 1/2-inch thick frames.

Step 5: Hang the painting by resting the frame over the nails.

 How to Choose the Right Hanging Hardware for Your Canvas?

However, if it is a framed picture (less than 20 pounds), it’s good to have a selection of these hangers and nails (showed on the picture) on hand in different sizes as well. Large versions installed with an angled nail can support up to 20 lbs. For heavier loads (25 pounds to 50 pounds), use a flat-mounted hook and an anchor.
