February 27, 2015 - I love this bracelet. I have a 7 inch wrist so this is not too big for me! It holds up to whatever I am doing. I love them for me & for gifts!
February 27, 2015 - I love these bracelets - I bought them in several colors. They are beautiful and really light, so they are really comfortable to wear. I have received several compliments on them. I also love purchasing items that help people. I highly recommend to buy them fr yourself or as gifts for others. :)
February 8, 2015 - I bought 15 of these as gifts and love them. It's amazing to me that they are made from grass, what talent! I love to buy from here because the gifts have meaning and help support others. They are beautiful bracelets.
January 19, 2014 - Light weight and so comfortable to wear that you forget you have it on. I love the cranberry color and hope to order more soon. It makes me feel very special when I wear it knowing that it was made by hand by a woman of another culture.
January 11, 2014 - I had high hopes, My original ordered arrived without either of the bracelets I ordered. Customer service took care of that, but by that time the color I wanted was no longer being carried. When the recipient took the first bracelet out of the package and stretched it to put it on her wrist, it immediately broke and beads went all over the floor. Hopefully she will be able to get some use out of the other one.
