"A Meaningful Accessory"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

As soon as I received this bracelet I put it on and wore it all day. It is very attractive and well made. Knowing that it represents a tiny step toward solving the problem of excess plastic adds to my enjoyment in wearing it. Well done, Millicent!

"I will wear this often."

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I only received this a few days ago and already I have worn it three times. The length is just right to show above most necklines. The gentle earth tones of the beads lend the subtlety of nature to the dyed colors of clothing, and I cant imagine any skin tone they wouldnt compliment.

This is my first necklace which lists recycled plastic as a component and I didnt quite know what to expect. As it turns out, this is a beautiful, high quality necklace with wonderful workmanship and great attention to detail. Love, love, love it.
