Global Celebration

With this collection of handcrafted bracelets, the whole earth and its history is right at hand to help you express yourself. Each band has a unique combination of colors, charms, beads and decorative knot work, allowing you to find a symbolic meaning in each one. When you wear the twisting, autumn-toned band with its starburst pendant, for example, will you picture the sun and the earth, or intricate wonder of DNA? The bracelets can be mixed and matched, and worn individually or together to suit your look, your mood and your place in the world. Bracelets are made from durable, waxed cords, and have either button-and-loop or adjustable knot closures. Handmade in Guatemala.

          Comments about STORY OF THE EARTH SET OF 7 BRACELETS:

          I read other reviews that said these bracelets were hard to put on, but after watching the video, I thought I could handle it. I'm a jewelry maker, and I have to say that what I wasn't prepared for how STIFF these bracelets are. I don't know what they did in the video to remedy that, but they certainly don't appear that stiff. I tried soaking them in water, but to no avail. They are also not nearly as bright in color as the photo shows, rather muted and also seem somewhat smaller in appearance as far as the size of the beads. I was disappointed. I was really looking forward to these bracelets.

                          These bracelets were even better than I hoped they would be! I couldn't wait to get them on and I haven't taken them off since. The designs are lovely and the quality is excellent. They do run on the small side which is what I needed. Because I have small hands, it can be hard to find bracelets that fit snugly enough. So glad I bought them!

                            We love that these colorful bracelets represent the story of how the world as we know it came to be. Would you wear all 7 at once, or a few at a time?

                            Too hippy like. Younger people or "granola" types would like it though.

                            Too "young" for me - I would probably buy them for my nieces - but agree - I'd be more likely to buy if made in the USA

                            I like that they can be worn all together, or individually, and the colors are such that they would go with almost anything. My niece (20 y.o) would adore these, and I think they are just dandy...said the aging 47 y.o aunt.

                            I'm not typically into bracelets like this...but I really like this. Wouldn't wear it to work, but it would be fun to wear at other times! Love the colors!

                            While I appreciate the abundance of colors, mix-and-match-ability, and overall style, I have a very hard time buying something that is quick, easy, and inexpensive for me to make myself at home.

                            Is this a "fair trade" business in Guatemala? Made in the USA would be the best, but this would help!!

                            It looks like something an 8 year old made in girl scouts.

                            Pretty colors and interesting textures. Bonus if some tribal woman made it to put food on the table or something. If so, share more of the story

                            LOVE it - love that it's colorful and full of variety. A great conversation piece for a bracelet-lover like me.

                            Very pretty - I have a friend who would love these. Just not my style.

                            Would definitely buy these, they are vibrant and have great meaning. I also love that the bracelets are handmade in Guatemala-my little brother was adopted from there and I know that the people there put their heart and soul into everything they make.

                            I like the idea, but wish these were made with non-synthetic fiber (linen, cotton, hemp) and were made in the USA. These are my reasons for the thumbs-down vote.

                            I LOVE these. They are a great addition to a weekend, summer, beach wardrobe. Can't wait to get mine.

                            Colors are very appealing, draw your eyes to the bracelets. To me, this seems to represent today's consciousness.

                            Price would determine the final decision.

                            How do I see the world today? I could take it all on, or just enjoy the sunshine and the sky.

                            Love the idea, but want to be sure that artisans are paid fairly for this work.

                            nice but reminds me of my high school years and that was back in early 90's

                            i think that these are really fun and colorful :)
