Beautifully Confident

At those times when you know you need to take life into your own hands, these inspiring bangles will be right there to remind you that anything is possible. They have an organic, textured form handcrafted by sculptor Jen Pleasants, who also embosses each one with an empowering quote: "She believed she could, so she did!"

A firm believer in the power of an individual to achieve her dreams, Pleasants embraces an earth-friendly philosophy in her jewelry. The precious metals she uses are all recycled, she packages them in FSC-certified materials, and she even works in a studio made from reclaimed wood, topped with a living roof with grasses and flowers. Now it's your turn to see where your own possibilities will lead. Handmade in New York.

Inscription reads: "She Believed She Could, So She Did."
Designers Note: The actual phrase appears as an "artistic interpretation" of the message. It is stamped on the ring and sometimes a word or two is blurred or upside down intentionally! The pieces are organic in nature and the artist is celebrating the beauty in the simplicity and imperfections.

One of Jen Pleasants' favorite aphorisms is, "the only zen you will find at the top of the mountain is the zen you bring up there." Her Northern California studio, however, is not on a mountaintop but in a renovated goat shed with a living roof. Surrounded by crystals inside and redwoods outside, she creates pieces that are an external reflection of the beauty, magic, and power that we each possess on the inside. The organic nature of her designs coupled with the inspirational messages behind them gives each piece a one-of-a-kind, meaningful feel. Jen's jewelry emphasizes positive affirmations and is crafted with recycled metals and ethically sourced stones.

Take a studio tour to see where Jen's jewelry takes its shape!

Handmade Made in the USA
Made from
recycled sterling silver, 14kt gold plate
Measurements
2.5" diameter, 0.13" W
Care
Sterling Silver jewelry stays clean if you wear it every day, but keep perfume and hairspray away from it. For cleaning use a simple jewelry polishing cloth and store your piece in a plastic zip-lock bag perhaps even with an anti tarnish strip. If you still notice tarnishing, try putting your piece in a glass bowl lined with tin foil. Dust the piece with baking soda and pour hot water on top. Use a soft toothbrush to remove it from the water and your silver should be shiny. Rinse off any remaining residue. To restore the shine on gold plating very gently rub with a non-abrasive jewelry polishing cloth.

    Comments about UncommonGoods She Believed She Could Bangle:

    I have the silver and gold bracelet that my husband bought me. I love them but when I ordered the gold one for a friend, it arrived v. misshapen. Now that I read the reviews I'm afraid it is going to be too small for my friend. I'll see her in September and may have to return it. v. disappointing.

    Service and delivery comments:

    I don't see how the shipping packaging could have damaged the shape of the bracelet. However, whoever packaged it could not have helped but notice the odd shape.

      Really liked the bracelet. Eventhough the writing is very hard to read. Wife seems really happy with it, and it does not bother her, because she knows what it says.

      Love the product but it doesn't fit

      Comments about UncommonGoods She Believed She Could Bangle:

      I bought this gift for my maid of honor; it describes her perfectly. She wasn't able to fit it over her hand though. The print is smudged in some areas (not a huge deal to me but something she commented to me about) but the biggest obstacle is that she can't wear it. Would love for her to be able to!

      Nice weight for its size. Others have said that it was too small. My hands are medium size and have large wrists. I could put it on and wear this bracelet comfortably. The recipient is more dainty. The packaging was very nice.

      This bracelet is great for me. I love the slender size but a constant reminder with it's verse of encouragement. I never take it off.

      gave as an anniversary gift
      Look great and stands out

      Only negative is that it is VERY tight to get on and off even for a small wrist-- I wish it was a 1/4" wider in diameter

      Pretty, but words are illegible

        Comments about UncommonGoods She Believed She Could Bangle:

        I understand that "sometimes a word or two is blurred or upside down intentionally." However, with a 10X magnifying glass, I was only able to read "she" and "she." Makes it a very pretty plain bangle, but not a graduation gift.
