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 UncommonGoods Story of the Earth Set of 7 Bracelets:

    I love the look of this artistic set of bracelets. In fact, I ordered two sets, with the intention of giving one to a friend. I love the twine and bead combination work and chunky, artistic, handmade appearance. However, the bracelets were so small! They might find a small child,, but I could not even get them over my fingers! I'm not a small adult (tall, but lean) but if my wrists were that small I'd look very odd!

    Comments about UncommonGoods Story of the Earth Set of 7 Bracelets:

    I love the look of these bracelets! They're stylish, but without looking like you're trying too hard. As some of the other reviewers mentioned, they are a bit difficult to put on (especially the first few times). You might need some help putting it on before the bracelets loosen/soften a little. Otherwise a really great find!

    Very nice set!

    By 

    from San Francisco, ca

    Comments about UncommonGoods Story of the Earth Set of 7 Bracelets:

    I am pretty happy with this set from Wakami. Three of the bracelets are adjustable, and four have a button. They are a bit stiff at first, and it takes a minute to button them, but then it loosens up. I have pretty wide wrists, and they fit fine, I'm fact the one bracelet with the sun bead is very loose and would fit a man's wrist. All bracelets are waxed and would last for a long time. Casually cool! The little booklet that comes with the set is cute, and I read it aloud to my kids. It's a nice little story about creation of sun, moon, and the stars.
    I also think the set could make for a nice gift, get it for someone who appreciates boho or beach jewelry. The price is great, as well.

    Unless you have freakishly small hands, four of the group are impossible to put on yourself. I bought clasps that I will be adding to some of the bracelets. Loved the style, though.

    I wear all of the bracelets everyday. They are quality made and look nice so that I feel comfortable wearing them to work. We do a lot of boating in the summer and they are not showing signs of discoloring or losing their shape.

          All seven bracelets are too many to wear at once, but the quality and variety of them all allow you to pick and choose which one(s) to wear. Several of them are exceptionally small and will only fit on child-sized wrists.
