Description

The design of this bracelet combines beautiful jewelry design and the braille alphabet to help spread the need for Braille literacy. Unemployment among individuals who are blind hovers at about 70%, but of those individuals who are employed 95% read braille. At a time when only about 10% of the blind population currently reads Braille, this bracelet is a reminder of the importance of Braille literacy. A percentage of the profits from the sale of her Braille jewelry are donated to organizations that promote Braille literacy.

    2. definitely interested :)

      need a clasp that can withstand me ;) once I put a piece of jewelry on it's a permanent fixture on me. I need a clasp that is sturdy. gemstone is a nice option if it can withstand the elements I put it through. if you have a sterling silver clasp sans gemstone that would work as well...

      let me know what you think

    2. Jonathan, what a lovely thing to have written; my heartfelt thanks to you, indeed.

      DM, funny you should ask! I do have it in sterling silver with your choice of about six gemstone clasps. Sterling with a simple, pearl clasp is the one I wear every day, and is probably most people's choice.
      I look forward to hearing from you again!
