Jingle bell bracelet: 889 ppm Lead.
(otherwise mostly zinc, copper and nickel.)
Tested with an XRF instrument.
The amount of Lead in jewelry marketed and sold as intended for use by adults is not regulated. Kids’ items are considered toxic/unsafe if over 90 ppm Lead in the paint, glaze or coating or 100 ppm Lead in the substrate. At 889 ppm Lead if this were marketed for use by children it would be considered illegal today.
As always, please let me know if you have any questions.
