    These are attractive bracelets. I like that they are serving a purpose as well as looking nice for the wearer. They are a bit pricey - but it sounds like a good cause. The colors are lovely but the chain closing the bracelets seems a bit flimsy. The price and chain gave these four rather than five stars.

                We love that these beautiful bracelets are handmade by fair-trade artisans using reclaimed saris. The 14k gold is a nice touch, too! Would you wear this uncommon jewelry piece?

                You can't tell it is sari material when it is all bunched up. Very expensive for a fabric bracelet. Would be easily mistaken for a child's craft project. Are they washable?

                Bracelets are nice, but I have to agree with Danielle. These look more like a child's craft project. Too bad - I've been looking for something like to share as a friendship-type bracelet. I may consider buying this bracelet if it was $20 less.

                Beautiful, love the blue especially where the gold peeks out from within the sari. I agree the price is a bit high, but I like that it's fair-trade!

                I like the fair trade aspect, but I like the patterns on saris, and you can't see any of that in these examples. Plus, it's really expensive for a bracelet, even if it is fair trade - I just wouldn't pay that much for this item.

                Yes, you can't tell the bracelets are saris but they are beautiful, the gold is a nice addition, and the fact that they ARE made out of saris but in my opinion makes them unique and makes for an interesting story when people compliment you and ask you questions about it while wearing them. It's a little pricey and I suppose that has to do with the gold, but I would purchase it. Please put this on uncommon goods!!

                Beautiful and hippie-like---but too expensive. I would consider buying it for a friend at a lower price point. I don't know that the 14k gold is necessary.

                Beautiful, but priced too high. Something in the $20's would be more acceptable. Also it's impossible to tell that a sari fabric was used.

                I think this is a great idea, but since the ends of the sari are unraveling, I think $42 is a bit unreasonable. Also, I don't like that I can't adjust the size of the bracelet. Other than that, I love this.

                I love the bold colors and the gold accents, but I think the $42.00 price is too much. $30.00 or lower would be a better price point.

                I think it would be great if you carried these in smaller sizes. 7" is way too big for my wrist and I would love to have one. Perhaps even a little cheaper...maybe $35 would be great as well.

                Very pretty, but too expensive. I'd pay $25-$30.

                It is a unique piece. Interesting discussion piece, but a bit pricey.

                Saris are beautiful and I would like to be able to see more of the gorgeous fabric, which you can't with a woven bracelet. Personally, I'm not a gold person either.

                7" is very small - most bracelets start at 7-1/2". They should be larger, and they should be adjustable or available in various wrist sizes. I'm a big woman and have an 8-1/2" wrist. Fat people like pretty things, too.

                I love the look but the price is too high The ends look as if they can fray easily. Also I think they are too home crafted looking for the price but pretty non the less.

                My mom buys gobs of sari fabric at thrift shops for next-to-nothing and actually makes proper Indian clothing and accesories. No, she isn't Indian either. She can just look at something and draw up a pattern for it.

                Very close to something my 9-year-old grandson made me last year!! The fact that it's recycled sari scraps and dipped bronze doesn't make it much prettier.

                I think the brcelets are beautiful and would love to see them is different colors. However, they are a bit pricey. $32 would be a better price and I would prolly get two.

                I agree with Danielle in that one cannot recognize the material as being from a sari. I am not fond of the gold peeking out from the fabric, either. It is not something I'd want to wear or to give as a gift.

                Although it is meaningful, I don't know that it would serve as a conversation piece, because (agreeing with others) I believe people would see it on your wrist and assume a child made it for you at summer camp.Which - would be totally OK, but not for such a high price point.Its beautiful, but not worth the money (IMO).

                I find the bracelets very pretty. Unfortunately, due to the design, where the material comes from does not make a whole lot of difference. The pricing is also high. I've seen a similar design in dog choker collars, it was also pretty. I like the contrast between the metal and cloth.

                I agree with the other comments that the price point is too high; $15.00 would be more like it for an item that doesn't look durable.

                If you get two of them then I would get them. If that is $42 a piece that is kind of high for a bracelet that I know some of the younger set would love to wear.

                Aa bit too expensive for my budget. They are pretty, but only the recipient would know how special they really are.

                I don't like the frayed edges on the blue bracelet. These bracelets only look nice if you are up close to them, otherwise it just looks like braided cloth.
