This invention relates to a bracelet.
An object of the invention is to provide a on line 6_6 of Figure 3;

number of sections if desired.
Another object of the invention is the provision
of a novel means for securing holding members
to the bracelet sections without the use of solder
or the like and without danger of the parts be
coming loose or detached under ordinary condi
20 tions of use.
Another obj ect of the invention is the provision
of novel means for readily securing a holding or
other member in av channel-shaped jewelry part`
without the use of separate holding means and
25 in such a manner as not to mar the appearance
of the article by the presence of unsightly at
taching means upon any part of the structure.
With the above and other objects in view
that will become apparent as the nature of the
30 invention is better understood, the same consists
in the novel form, combination and arrange
ment of parts hereinafter more fully described,
shown in the accompanying drawing and claimed.
Referring to the drawing:

between the bracelet section and the beaded edges
of the sections having swaged portions or lugs
engaged with the leaves of the hinge for secur
ing the latter to the bracelet sections;

located upon opposite sides thereof and extend
ing inwardly toward each other from the inner
curved surface- of the member.
The bracelet sections 2 and 3 may be hlngedly
connected together by means of a hinge holding
member 5 provided with 'a hinge joint 6 and hav
ing side leaves or plates 'l extending from oppo«
site sides of said hinge joint of such width as to 25
fit substantially within the beads or ñanges 4.
'I‘he plates ‘l are firmly secured to the adjacent
ends of the bracelet sections by having clamping
lugs 8 swaged down from the inner surface of
the flanges 4 into clamping engagement with por- 30
tions of the plates 1 to clamp the hinged member
ñrm'ly ln position in the bracelet sections.
A clasp fastener or hold catch member I0 is ,
carried by the free end of the bracelet section 3
f_or detachable clasping engagement with the free 35
end of the bracelet section 2 and as shown more
constructed in accordance with the present ln
on their hinged connection;
The sections 2 and 3 are each suitably curved
to ñt substantially the wrist of the wearer and 15
are formed from channel shaped metal stock or
are shaped to provide lateral beads or flanges 4
clearly in Figures 1, 3, 6 and 7, the hold or catch
member` I 0 comprises a plate I I substantially-'rec
tangular in plan view with opposite side edges
thereof slidably received in the edge beads or 40
flanges 4 and retained in engagement with the
bracelet section 3 by lugs 8a swaged from the
bead or flanges 4 into engagement therewith. A
portion of the plate II projects beyond the free
end of the bracelet `section 3 and said plate is 45
cut-awayk to provide a resilient tongue carrying
an oñïset finger piece I3 that projects outwardly
of the bracelet section 3 at the end of said section
and outwardly thereof, A> protuberance I4 onl
the tongue I2 is adapted to be received in an open-` 50
ing I5 in the bracelet section 2 to retain the free
ends of the bracelet sections in clasped relation.
The projecting part of the plate II of the hold
or catch member IIII is slidably received in the 56
side edge beads or ñanges 4 of the bracelet section
2 as shown in Figure 6.
A chain I6 connects the free ends of the brace
let sections 2 and 3 and as shown more clearly
in Figures 7 and 8, the flange 4 at one side of
adjacent ends of the two bracelet sections has a
loop I1 struck-out therefrom for the attachment
of the ends of the chain I6.
The hinge members 5* and catch member I0 are
10 designated herein generically as holding members
since they serve to hold the ends of the bracelet
sections in position relative to each other and
are similarly attached to the bracelet sections.
While the holding members shown in the type of
15 bracelet illustrated herein are respectively a
hinge and catch member adapted for connecting
ends of bracelet sections together, they may con
From the above detailed description of the in
vention, it is believed that the construction there
of will at once be appreciated, and while there is
herein shown and described the preferred em-bodiment of the invention, it is nevertheless to 5
be understood that minor changes may be made
therein without departing from the spirit and
scope of the invention as claimed.
I claim:
1. A bracelet structure comprising arcuate sec
stitute any holding means such as may be em
the associated section and lugs struck from the
ployed in connecting the channel shaped section
inwardly directed portions of said flanges into
to another portion of a bracelet structure. Al
though one particular form of catch for uniting
the ends of the bracelet sections is shown, any
suitable catch structure may be employed for the
purpose, it being understood that a portion of the
25 catch element or elements may be adapted to ñt
within the flanges 4 of a bracelet section and be
secured thereto by clamping lugs 8a after the
manner described.
The hinge member 5 and the catch member l0
30 are anchored to the bracelet sections by a swag
ing operation resulting in lugs which are pressed
or swaged from side edge beads on the bracelet
sections into binding engagement with the hinge
and catch members, the parts being assembled
35 without the use of solder, welding or the like with
the result that the bracelet comprising the con
nected sections may be more rapidly and inex
pensively produced.
