  • Publication number: 20110048072
    Abstract: An article of jewelry comprising plates having indicia embossed or engraved thereon mounted on a shoelace type cord. The ends of the cord have rigid rectangular aglets and are threaded through rectangular holes at opposed ends of the plates. The generally flat cord cannot twist or fold within the rectangular holes in the plates so the plates always maintain the same orientation and position on the cord, allowing them to be arranged and displayed sequentially. The article of jewelry can be tied to itself using one hand because the cord is provided with a rectangular button hole of the same size as the rectangular holes in the plates. The rigid rectangular aglet is passed through the button hole, under the cord and back through the created loop and pulled tight, thereby tying the cord to itself using only one hand.
