Earth Day Bracelet

In honor of Earth Day we’ve come up with a bracelet to celebrate the nature lover in all of us. This bracelet highlights our Hanah Silk Cording which is beautiful to look and feels great against your skin. This ribbon is hand dyed in gorgeous hues, so while the Earth Mother green is perfect for celebrating Earth Day and for those who love green, feel free to substitute it with your favorite color. Another item this bracelet highlights is the Tree of Life charm which is one of my favorites with its classic full shape and swirly branches.
