I absolutely adore these pieces. The first bracelet in particular is one of my favorites, not just because of its bright pops of color, and zesty pattern, or my irresistible urge to grab those bracelets off that manicured hand, and strap them onto my own wrist- but I love it, because I respect it. I realize this sounds strange, but I am going to explain. Each year, a designer has come out with a piece similar to the looks of the piece in the first image. Make no mistake, the only thing similar about it, was the string used to make the bracelet. Although it has taken a few years, I believe designers were able evolve these braclets into what I think now looks fantastic, but during its first stages, companies like forever 21, wet seal ect., were making these bracelets look really cheap, which is understandable considering the material, but I had always thought a bracelet like this had so much more potential. Now that bigger brand labels have picked it up, they have turned these once tacky looking camp bracelets, into eclectic and tasteless pieces that can be worn in multiple age ranges. For me this was a clear example of the design process that goes into creation, taking it back to the drawing board, until it can be reinvented to look its best.
