January 19, 2014 - Light weight and so comfortable to wear that you forget you have it on. I love the cranberry color and hope to order more soon. It makes me feel very special when I wear it knowing that it was made by hand by a woman of another culture.
January 11, 2014 - I had high hopes, My original ordered arrived without either of the bracelets I ordered. Customer service took care of that, but by that time the color I wanted was no longer being carried. When the recipient took the first bracelet out of the package and stretched it to put it on her wrist, it immediately broke and beads went all over the floor. Hopefully she will be able to get some use out of the other one.
November 17, 2013 - I love all 3 colors of this bracelet I ordered. I got a few sets to share. I get many compliments on them.
May 14, 2013 - This is a very simple and nice bracelet. You can wear it with anything.
January 21, 2013 - Bought the tan and green. A lot smaller than I thought. You could wear several at once. Will wear in the coming spring. Will go nice with summer or beach wear. Love them.
