My dad has the habit of buying me the GM size, so I frequently exchange the one he’s given me for the right size.  Sometimes, like this recent Christmas, Hermes is an utter mad house when I arrive so instead of special ordering the exact same pattern I’ll swap for something they have in stock.

 

A kind of ridiculous collection

My secret fancy collection?  Hermes enamel bracelets (petite modele).  It all started when I inherited my mother’s trio of bracelets from the 80’s.  Two horse profiles in red and blue and a blue chain link skinny bracelet in blue.  She’s now a GM and these three are too small for her.

It was a down hill (and expensive) slope from there.  Now I’m guessing I have about 20 to 25 total.  I usually receive one on my birthday and one on Christmas, then I stalk them on eBay, and occasionally spend a bonus on a new pattern.  I love the color and the click clack they make on my arm.  But what other patterns are there?  I wish Hermes published a catalog for myself and the other collector’s out there.  Good lord, there must be other collector’s out there.  Am I in this alone?

So here is my collection.  I will add the various patterns I have collected and showcase them paired with each other and other bangles that I own.  Please let me know the French names of the patterns that I may not know.
