With the booming trends that friendship bracelets have made in the last year or so (since their mega popularity in the 5th grade), it is no surprise that designers are jumping on the bandwagon in order to showcase the unique bracelet. Labels such as Danijo have showed us that friendship bracelets are no longer just for the elementary, but also for the fashionistas. While the prices can be steep for the designer remake of a grade school classic, there are some beautiful pieces out there that won't break the bank and also support a worthy cause.
Enter Pura Vida. Hand crafted bracelets that come in a variety of styles and colors perfect for any gal. The best part? Their price point is more than reasonable. Still need a reason? With every bracelet purchase 1% of the cost goes to help The Surfrider Foundation. In addition to that, Pura Vida uses Costa Rican artisans to create their bracelets - therefore the more bracelets purchased, the more employment opportunity for the artists community.
So, show your support on your wrist! PURA VIDA!!! Make your purchases here.
