For this round of ShelbieShue Friday Faves, I give you a roundup of bracelets. Most of these brands and organizations have a charitable arm (pun totally intended!) and give back to great causes. I enjoy highlighting brands who are making a difference and creating beauty all the while. I encourage you to click over and research these companies if you haven’t yet!
1. PARKER CLAY – Upcycled Wrap Bracelet $48
I love this wrapped bracelet and the benefits of purchasing it! It comes in several hues and there are other accessories to match. Here’s more from their website: Parker Clay has partnered with Wonderfully Made to create this unique premium leather wrap bracelet made of genuine Ethiopian leather and up cycled artillery. What was intended for harm has been transformed into something of beauty. The metal ring and bead are made of bullets found in the Ethiopian countryside which are from former conflicts. This premium leather wrap bracelet is designed to adorn your wrist while adorning women with value in Ethiopia. Each bracelet sold covers the cost of providing prostitution prevention training to one woman. Prices begin at $18.
2. NOONDAY COLLECTION – Metric Cuff $20
I would stack this cuff with several others! The cut-out geo designs make this versatile cuff feel effortlessly modern. Noonday is a socially responsible business that uses fashion to create meaningful opportunities around the world. For this particular cuff, they partner with an artisan business in India that creates dignified jobs in a vulnerable community, empowering both men and women to provide for their families. Artisans create jewelry by hand, earning fair wages and enjoying a safe work environment. Prices begin at $12.
3. & 4. THE SHINE PROJECT – Feather Bracelet $14
I love the mission of this organization and the products! I have given several of these bracelets as gifts. You can personalize a few and they are perfect for stacking! Here’s more from their website: Wear Change. Ignite Hope. The Shine Project headquarters in downtown Phoenix and it’s a place where students come after school to hand make jewelry. They are involved in running everything from customer service, shipping, jewelry design, t-shirt design, new product design, sales, and events. The students who are given scholarships through the non- profit are then given jobs, so they can be mentored and guided every step of the way. Over 40 scholarships have been given since 2011, and 100% of donations given to the non-profit go directly to the students. Threads by The Shine Project currently employees 11 inner city students.
5. FOSSIL – Open Flex Cuff $48
Fossil is one of my go-to stores for accessories and gifts. Beautiful products and great packaging. I have this bracelet in rose gold and pair it with a few of their other bangles. More from their website: Make a big statement with our most minimalist cuff. Polished steel is gorgeously curved to create a simple bracelet that works with any ensemble.
What’s missing from this list? Do you have a favorite Etsy shop owner who personalizes the best bangle? Please share your favorites in the comments. Or, are you itching to spend a leftover giftcard from Christmas? A little bauble that gives back may be the perfect thing! 😉
All the photos in this roundup are from each company or organization. Also, I do not receive any monetary compensation for sharing these products. I independently researched and found them beautiful and wanted to pass along the memo!
