How do you put on and take off your Opera Bracelet?
Opera Bracelets are made using memory wire, so the jewelry stretches when you put it on and then springs back to its original shape to conform to your wrist, which allows our bracelets to fit nearly anyone! Also, there are no clasps required for a memory wire bracelet, so you can put it on yourself without needed assistance from anyone else!

What materials are used in the bracelets?
Opera Bracelets are created from stainless steel memory wire, glass, metal and ceramic beads with pewter charms. Memory wire stretches and then springs back to its original shape, unless crushed or bent, allowing it to fit nearly anyone.
Glass beads, while normally very durable, can still break in certain circumstances. If you ever have a broken bead, please contact me so I can fix the bracelet for you right away at no charge! I stand behind my work 100% and always want you to be happy with your Opera Bracelet!
The pewter charms I use are made in the USA.
The glass beads used mainly come from the Czech Republic where they have specialized in making glass beads for over 200 years. Some crystals come from Austria.
Metal Cloisonné beads come from China where they have been an art form since the 1300s.
A note about jewelry materials: Metals and glass finishes can react with the oils of your skin and anything you put on your skin, such as soaps, perfumes or lotions. Again, if at any point you notice any problem with your Opera Bracelet, please let me know so I can take care of it for you! I always want you to be happy with your purchase, which I know means a great deal to you!
"A very satisfied customer! - I wanted to let you know how happy I am with my order. The bracelets are even nicer in person! Even the way they are packaged in the pretty box and beautiful little bags - it makes for a lovely gift presentation. I ordered another today and have recommended you to several coworkers who will be ordering gifts. I have also dropped several hints to my kids regarding the ones I like." - Debbie
What will it look like when it arrives?
Opera Bracelets arrive in a drawstring organza bag, within a gift box that also contains the associated synopsis bead chart for "Full Story" Opera Bracelets or explanatory card for "Inspired By..." Bracelets.
Opera Bracelets contain small delicate parts and are not intended for children. Charms and other elements can catch on fine knitwear - please wear with care.
When will it ship? All Opera Bracelets are individually handmade in Rochester, NY and ordinarily ship within 2-3 business days. If there should be any delay beyond this, you will be contacted via email and all efforts will be made to get your Opera Bracelets to you as soon as possible.
How do I check a balance on a Gift Certificate?
Click the Gift Certificate category at the top of the website. On the bottom of the left side bar choose "Check remaining balance". Enter the Gift Certificate code to see how much remains on the gift certificate.
Do you have Quantity Pricing?
We welcome inquiries for quantity purchases (25+ bracelets) at a discount. Please see more information on the Quantity Purchases page.
Why is the charge on my credit card listed as Dyzines and not as Opera Bracelets?
Dyzines is my corporate business name as recorded by New York State (where I live). When I started Opera Bracelets, I still had a suite of artistic businesses, so I included Opera Bracelets under the Dyzines name for both legal and financial simplicity.
If you have any other questions not listed here, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 585-271-0864 between 10 am and 7 pm ET Mon-Sat.
