REVIEW: Wanderer Bracelets

I know, I know, I swear I am always talking about #ArmCandy and #WristParties, but it's because there are so many amazing bracelet companies out there in the world! Another one that sought me out was Wanderer Bracelets.

As always, the hardest part of my "job" is picking out the bracelets that I want to review. It legit took me about 30 minutes to try and narrow down my top three picks - there are just so many cute bracelets to choose from.

Just a few of the many options that they offer

And now you can see why it took me so long to decide... This isn't even all of them!

I finally decided on my top three. The pineapple (I mean, if I'm 'crazy' enough to get a pineapple tattooed on one of my calves you better believe it's going to make it into the top three bracelets), the three arrows (not only did I love the multi-colored cord the arrows were on, I really liked the simplicity of the charms) and the custom coordinates (I used the latitude and longitude of where the hubby and I got married over 8 years ago {a collective 'aw' rang over the crowd}).

Along with the three amazing bracelets, I also got some sweet stickers, a key chain and a few temporary tattoos!

Quick note: When the hubby and I got married, instead of flowers, we had an artist make us button bouquets (and boutonnieres) so they'd
last forever. The coordinate bracelet is on my wedding bouquet. They match perfectly; it's like they were made for each other (and for me!).

Not only are the bracelets super cute, they are hand crafted in Bali (in case you didn't know, that is where the hubby and I went for our honeymoon - so many awesome connections with this amazing company, right?!). Each bracelet supports sustainable work for local village artisans. The designs are hand-carved using traditional techniques out of discarded all-natural water buffalo bone. Also, the bands are weaved together from durable, comfortable nylon thread.



Sometimes a product is so much more than meets the eye. When you wear one of these bracelets, you support the artisan who made it. Your purchase creates reliable work opportunities for artisans in Bali; and that changes everything.

These bracelets may just be a cute piece of jewelry to some, but they mean the world to others. Each purchase helps to sustain opportunity in multiple rural Bali villages by allowing the artists to earn a steady income, which gives families the power to save money for the future. The jewelry sparks creativity and allows the preservation of artistic traditions that have been passed down for generations. Keeping jobs local helps to strength community because when parents have reliable work, families can stay together and are no longer forced to leave their villages to find jobs.

I don't really have one fave bracelet. One of my tennis bracelets I'm especially fond of because it was a gift, but I love most every one of them. I like the sea shell bracelets here.
