"In My Heart" Bracelet
Each bracelet or piece of jewelry is based around a theme, such as a country or a statement. I had the opportunity to examine the "In My Heart" bracelet with the Russian adoption theme. This bracelet included 3 adorable charms; a nutcracker soldier, a snow flake, and a matryoshka (nesting) doll. The doll was a painted bead and was extremely cute. The bracelet was very sturdy and I didn't feel like the beads or charms were going to easily fall off. I was also highly impressed with the clasp; it was very large and seemed strong enough to support daily wear of this item. It is obvious that this piece and its components are of high quality.
