Made by Kristine over at Crazyartgrrl Jewelry since 2006, Embracelings are memory wire based, coil design handmade bracelets that look like a shiny bangle while going on very easily. If you've ever struggled to put on a bracelet by yourself, you'll appreciate that part! Embracelings are available in a multitude of designs and colors, from fashion to floral to birthstones - even mother's, which are fully customizable with up to ten different birthstone colors.
I was able to choose an Embraceling to try out. This was a hard decision, because there are so many different colors and styles to choose from! I ended up picking out the Embraceling - Red rubberized beads and red/blue faceted Czech glass design. It arrived in a little box for gift giving:
Carefully wrapped in tissue paper:
Yes, black and pink packaging - two of my favorite colors. ;) When I opened it, I fell in love:
Isn't it beautiful? It was so easy to put on - as well as take off - and the memory wire made it sturdy. I didn't have to worry that if I snagged it onto my clothing that it would fall apart. It really does look like a much more expensive bracelet, and I'm enjoying wearing this gorgeous bracelet! I'm not sure if my photo is showing it justice, so here is the stock photo from the site:
You can purchase Embracelings online via the website, or if you live in the Buffalo or Rochester areas, check fine gift shops like Vintage & Vogue Inspirations. (Purchasing online gives you the best selection, of course, but buying offline helps support a small local business!) Prices start at just $10.00 (a steal!), and you'll receive free shipping on all orders over $50. You can also follow Embracelings online via Facebook for updates and information.
