  • Silver & Gold Love Is Project bracelets - Bali
    Our Silver Offering & Gold Alchemy bracelets are made with LOVE by artisans in Bali, Indonesia. The dots traditionally symbolize rice in Balinese culture & takes 6 hours to create. Gold plated silver & sterling silver. Available in small & medium cuffs.<br /><br />...

  • This design is a conscious decision to thread the LOVE concept through new iterations of the LOVE bracelet. The circular dots traditionally symbolize rice in Balinese culture. The dots also emulate the Maasai beads in the original design of the Kenya LOVE bracelet. Rice and LOVE are both plentiful and provide sustenance to the communities who make these bracelets.

    In Hinduism, Gold is symbolic of knowledge, learning, meditation and mental development. The legend of alchemists turning common metals into gold is a parable for the human quest to change base vulgarities like greed, hate and selfishness into qualities like love, virtue and compassion through the process of self-purification. It takes our artisans 6 hours to craft each bracelet. 

    Gold plated on silver & Sterling Silver. Available in Small & Medium size cuffs.

Founded by the fourth queen of Bhutan, Renew serves 3,000 women across the country with counseling and training services.

    Cultural preservation is particularly important in Bhutan, and we’ve chosen to honor those traditions by enclosing each bracelet with a mini prayer flag set. Each bracelet and prayer flag set has been blessed by Buddhist nuns in Punakha and the head monk at the Paro Monastery, in a ceremony that involves holy water, ringing of bells, and chanting prayers. Please respect the prayer flags, and do not hang them in the bathroom or other dirty places.

  • Our Harmony bracelets are made from achira seeds and tagua nuts. Achira seeds are small, hard seeds used by the Inca over 500 years ago, and continue to be used in jewelry, rosaries, and musical instruments today. Indigenous tribes in South America hung tagua pendants around their necks as symbols of harmony, tranquility, and love for family and friends. These bracelets will get a worn-in look if worn in the water.  If you want them to remain shiny & new looking, please avoid water

    We’re thrilled to incorporate these historic seeds into our newest Harmony line that promotes tranquility, protection against negativity, and of course LOVE. Every purchase creates a sustainable livelihood for Kichwa women artisans in Ecuador.

    Be a part of the greatest love story ever told.
