Ah ha! moment

Last week I joined a friend on a trip to the hardware store for paint, but of course I went along for goodies in what I like to call "the random metal do-dahs aisle." And for her company too.

But what to my wondering eye should appear? This little guy, who immediately screamed to me, "remember those bracelets in the new issue of Marie Claire?!" so I had to take him home. Here they are together. You see the DIY potential too, right? The closure system isn't the same, but I think all the attitude and heft are there.

I may spray paint it gold and use bolt cutters to trim down the end parts with the threads. They are hidden at this angle, but each end has a hex nut (those things again!) to keep the bar from falling off the rounded piece.

P.S. I have no idea what kind of metal gizmo it is.
