Did you ever make beaded bracelets when you were little with beads/bead kits from the craft store? I made a few – I wasn’t super in to making jewelry – and I honestly can’t remember what words I made using the lettered beads. Maybe my name?
When I saw that Baublebar was making customizable beaded bracelets just like those kids made back in the 90s, but fancier, I instantly liked them. For the Pisa bracelets, you can customize the lettered beads up to 12 characters with anything you want (within reason). I spent a few days thinking about what words I wanted to do. It wasn’t just a meaningful word that I had to consider – it was the colors. Each letter is an assigned color and I wanted it to be pretty! My name was out because the letters in Jamie were too similar and looked blah. That’s also why I didn’t want to do any words with too many of the same letters. Ultimately, I decided to do 3 bracelets – they were having a special promotion for 3 bracelets when I ordered in November. I chose the words “Love”, “Happy”, and “Girlboss”. I wanted to do “Bossbabe” but that had too many b’s and s’s so it wasn’t very colorful.
I love these bracelets! They have good weight to them, but are comfortable. They’re not flimsy in the slightest. It took a few weeks for these to come in (they tell you on the website how many weeks it will take to ship) and I got them right before Christmas. I wore them at the end of the year and I think they’re great words for 2020 to live by/live up to/strive for etc.
