Anyone who has known me for good bit of time can tell you that I’ve never really been a jewelry person. It really stems from the laziness of not wanting to add another step to getting dressed, but I have recently found a new love for jewelry and I just had to share it with you.
A couple months ago I came across a brand selling bracelets. I loved the simple design of them and that they could be worn in the shower, meaning I didn’t have to take them off. Once I found out that a portion of the profit went to charity I was hooked.
I love the idea of wearing jewelry that not only matches your style, but gives back, has meaning, and creates awareness.
