Waxing Poetic Nestel Leather Bracelets Review

waxing-poetic-nestel-leather-braceletsFor their Mother’s Day 2014 Collection, Waxing Poetic introduced a brand new bracelet option to their wide selection of jewelry. The Nestel Leather Bracelets come in a variety of colors: Ebony, Bisque, Saddle, Berry, Navy, and Orchid. They are double wrap bracelets and for now only come in 15 inches (which is about 7.5″ size).  I was really excited for this product as a great alternative to showing off the Waxing Poetic charms.  I ended up getting two of these and they stack so well together.

I picked the incredibly versatile Ebony and the on-trend Orchid color for my double wrap Nestel Leather Bracelets.  The great thing about these is the silver clasp; not only is it magnetic, once it snaps together you can twist one end to lock it for a secure hold.  The leather is 4 mm in width, so is not thick enough to hold the charms in place, so the dangles do slide around on the bracelet.  The bracelets are buttery soft and so comfortable to wear – this is my preferred combination for the summer! 

The leather bracelets are not compatible with other charms brands, but they can also be worn without the dangles for a casual look.  Waxing Poetic can be purchased from Goldmine Waxing Poetic or Perlen, both offering free international shipping.  Do you like leather bracelets?  How do you wear your Waxing Poetic?

    In your opinion Leann, how do these compare with the Story by Kranz & Ziegler leather bracelets?…I have recently been looking at the Story leather but these are less expensive so I’d love to hear your take! 🙂

      They’re not as thick, I don’t know if I would compare the two. The Story ones are usually triple wrap so they can be worn as necklaces too. These are very nice but closer to Pandora leather bracelets.

        Hi Leann,
        I was wondering the same thing. Though I plan on taking advantage of the Pandora July promo as I have a lot of charms on my wish list from the Mother’s Day and Summer collections, I do not think I will be happy with the Pandora leathers for all of the reasons you and others have previously posted. I would like to be able to wear the bracelet without having to worry about it wearing out so quickly. So I was temped by the pictures you posted here for Waxing Poetic and by your other posts on Story. I think based on what you are saying, Story may be the better choice. It sounds like it is a bit more substantial and will wear better. I have a store near me that carries Story so I am excited to check these out. Thanks for your reviews!

        I’m not a fan of the Pandora leather bracelets, as I don’t think they’re good for continuous use. Story is a great products, you should definitely check them out!

    Hi Leann! Have you tried to fit the waxing Poetic dangles on the story Bracelets? I love my Story 3 wrap black lambskin bracelet. I wrap it with the story faceted onyx bracelet. I was lucky to find these on sale at half price recently. I have no charms for hem yet, and would love to have some waxing poetic dangles. I love them for their style, the two toned metal, and their price point. I can’t find a Waxing Poetic retailer in British Columbia at which to try these charms on. The Waxing poetic charms do look nice!

      I will double check, but I think they should! I’ll report back tonight :).

    Can you fit Pandora beads in those? I want a Christmas bracelet in a redish leather cord! But I definitely don’t like the Pandora one!
