Lovelies, I want to show you the coolest bracelets I have literally ever seen! No joke…you really must check them out! Remember those friendship bracelets we all made when we were tweens? Well, Frieda & Nellie has taken the friendship bracelet to a whole new level by adding vintage jewels and baubles. Brilliant! Each piece is handmade and one-of-a-kind. Their bracelets range in price from $40 – $300.
I just ordered a “Make a Wish” bracelet for myself and cannot wait to get it! I will seriously be checking my mailbox every five minutes until it arrives. The story behind the “Make a Wish” bracelet is that you are supposed to tie your bracelet in a bow or a knot…make a wish…and when your bracelet falls off your wish comes true! Yeah, sounds really cool in theory…however, I’m pretty sure that I would sob uncontrollably if my new bracelet just fell off! I mean, I did just spend $40 for it and I would really like to wear it more than once. Am I wrong, here?
Anyway, enough of my jabbering…shall we take a look at some of their fabulous bracelets? YES!!!!
According to their website, here’s how Frieda & Nellie got started. “Reuse, Repurpose, Reinvent: That’s the mantra of bauble-making New York City based Best friends Stacy Herzog and Sarah Reid. While traveling in Ecuador in late 2009 Herzog and Reid were inspired by the diverse array of intricate knotted friendship bracelets and were instantly reminded of their friendship bracelet making days at summer camp. The duo, who met working in the fashion industry in New York, Began to hand make bright detailed knotted friendship style bracelets and once back in New York they began combining them with pieces from their grandmothers’ vintage jewelry collections that they wore on a regular basis. The mix of the friendship bracelets and beautiful vintage created a new wonderful sophisticated line of jewelry. Frieda and Nellie is named in honor of the designer’s glamorous and creative grannies.”
