My confession, and my favorite pair of jeans

October 4, 2017

Do you have that pair of jeans? Not the ones so stretched out they fall off or the ones that are super trendy, but you just can't wear all day. I'm talking about the pair that make you sigh in contentment at the comfort and make you look twice in the mirror, wishing you could wear them EVERY DAY (I sometimes wear mine three days in a row, but don't tell my fashion-forward best friend who barely believes in jeans).

I bring this up because I wanted to share the inspiration behind my new Tentacle Swirl Bracelet.

 But first, here's my confession... I don't like wearing bracelets. There, I said it. The freak jewelry artist doesn't like pretty things on her wrists.  That's not it really. I just wear a lot of long sleeves in Alaska, and type on the

 computer, and work with my hands. Who has time to mess with something that's a pain to take on and off or gets in the way? I have ethical jewelry to make here, y'all!



So bearing in mind that my customers might have some of the same obstacles to overcome, I set out to design the perfect daily wear bracelet. It had to have the following criteria: 



1. Wearable daily in comfort and style

2. Easy to take on and off

3. Way to ensure proper fit

4. Versatility 

5. Beauty

6. Ethically sourced materials



In other words, it had to be as wearable and stylish as my favorite jeans.
