Showing off your poppers

Poppers, snaps, chunks, whatever you call them, they're pretty popular amongst the lampwork community, not to mention their customers and have become highly collectable.  I have a modest selection of them, some of which are in my Etsy shop:

Most people wear them on leather bracelets but there are also other ways to wear them as I'm about to show you.  I've stayed within Etsy for all of these otherwise I could have been here all day, cutting and pasting links!  So without further ado, I'll start with....

Wear them on your wrist...

There are plenty of fantastic designs of popper bracelets out there, not just in leather but in other materials too:

Leather "Mangopop" Bracelets from Mangobeads
Leather popper bracelets from RASPBERRYRINGS
Leather popper bracelet from AtelierZilverglas
Leather bracelet by MadelineBunyan

I'd like to add here that I bought one of Madeline's bracelets to match with one of my Dragon's Eye poppers and they went together wonderfully!

Which leads me onto two of my own bracelet designs:

"Quattro" leather cuff bracelet by janehamill
"Circles" suede cuff bracelet by janehamill

And now for more bracelets in different materials:

"abaco" adjustable bangle by mizgeorge
Etched Purple Copper Cuff by blueberribeads
Silvertone metal bracelet by JustMade

Wear them on your fingers...

Sterling Silver ring by EnchantedCobwebs
Ring by BeadTreasures4You

Wear them on your ears...

And finally, wear them in your own creations!

Until I did some searching for things to include in this post, I didn't know someone had made a popper component that you could use in your own piece of jewellery!

So there you have it, plenty of ways to show off your poppers!  Not a comprehensive list but certainly enough to be getting on with.  Do you know more that should be included here?  Or do you know of any distinctive popper jewellery designs outside of Etsy?  Let me know in the comments box - I'm happy to share the links with the world!
