A Charm Bracelet Fell In Love with a Bangle

A charm bracelet and a bangle fell in love.

And the rest is history.

Literally.  

Your history!

Customize The Life Bangle with hand-engraved images that represent you!

I've always loved a good charm bracelet not only because they tell the story of one's life, but also because I have such a soft spot for things that are smaller than they're supposed to be (i.e. Nike's for babies).  However, charm bracelets often aren't practical for everyday wear - which is why I also love a good, sleek bangle.  They're versatile and effortless.  In typical fashion, I've merged two of my favorite things into The Life Bangle.  This highly custom bangle features hand-engraved images that are meaningful to your life and represent you! 

Here's what I picked for My Life Bangle:

My O.G. BFF

From the day I got Zoey for my 16th birthday, we were two peas in a pod.  Between our mutual love of jelly beans, ice cream, and laying out in the sun, down to the fact that we share the same birthday, she will forever be my favorite shadow.  

We said goodbye to Zoey a few weeks ago, and it completely broke my heart.  The very next day, my new Life Bangle happened to be ready from the engraver.  It couldn't have come at a better time!  I will always love my Zippy Dog and it makes me so happy to have a little reminder of her with me everyday.

The Boathouse

The dock will always be one of my favorite places on Earth. It's the location I always use for all of my personal pieces from the coordinates collection.  Just thinking of the sound of the water against the dock gets me so excited for summer!

Key

This is one of my favorites because it reminds me of my family.  My cousins first started calling me Key when they were very little.  If you follow me on Instagram though, you know that Key has also morphed into Kiki and Keeks, a la my niece, Lottie.  If you're bored, check my Instagram for hilarious videos of her and her huge personality.  I swear it's the real reason people follow me!

American Flag

The 4th of July is second only to Christmas in my book.  Now that I think about it though, I might like it more than Christmas??  I don't know... it's a toss up.  But I'm a sucker for anything red, white, blue, and Americana.

Moccasins

Every summer growing up, my grandfather would get us a new pair of Minnetonka moccasins when we arrived to the lake.  I loved them so much that I would wear them until they literally had holes.  A pair of mine from when I was 3 now sits proudly on display at the lake house with the big toe completely worn out.  My current Minnetonka faves are my fuzzy slippers.  (I often wear them outside on chilly nights out on the boat.  I know, I'm so bad.)

Walloon Lake

It's the reason I started this company and no explanation would give this place justice... So I'm not even going to try!

Indy Car

I grew up in Carmel, IN just outside of Indianapolis.  I absolutely love it there and will always consider it home.  I chose the race car to represent Indy in general because, while going to the 500 is one of my favorite traditions, it's also just a great excuse to go home!

Diamond

This one is pretty obvious.  I spend SO much time with jewelry everyday!  But my favorite part of being in the industry is definitely the people. When I first started, I had no idea that I would make lifelong friends along the way!


 

What would you put on yours?

Alma mater?  Children's initials?  The possibilities are endless!

Thank you to all of my elves!

Another Christmas Season is complete and I just wanted to say thank you to all of the people that helped make it happen!  From the many late night runs to FedEx, to burning my hand on the wood brander like a total newb, it was the craziest year yet and I couldn't have done it without all of the help!

I Said Yes!

It's no secret that Summer is my favorite season (#lakelife).  However, someone asked me the other day if I was excited for Fall... and I said yes!  I don't know what it is this year, but I'm actually really looking forward to it.  Here's some proof:
