The Empower bracelet creates goodness on so many levels! Each three-stranded bracelet is not only handmade by women artisans in India, but it also provides funds for women's education and empowerment projects. This carded design makes a great gift item. We donate 15% of the wholesale price to the In Her Shoes Foundation, which helps women empower women. Beads measure .125" wide and are made of glass and a brass/metal mix. Bracelets stretch to fit most wrists.
