  • Wendell August Upcycled Hydrangea Cuff Bracelet

Who doesn’t need a Wendell August cuff bracelet or two?

I received a Wendell August product for the purpose of this review. This post was made possible by Mom Spark Media. Thoughts are my own.

Now that I’m in the great state of Texas, I’m seeing that people really love their jewelry. Fashion jewelry is super big here, and there are so many stores dedicated to just accessories. It’s like heaven for someone like me, who has a bit of an accessories addiction.

So, I’m totally fitting right in with my gorgeous new Wendell August Upcycled Hydrangea Cuff Bracelet. It’s monogrammed (swoon – I don’t have anything monogrammed, and I don’t know why not) in a beautiful script font, made with environmentally friendly scrap aluminum, and it’s about six and a half inches long. It is adjustable, and will fit anyone. This is good, because I can’t tell you how many bracelets I’ve tried on that simply are too tight. What’s that all about? Do I have fat wrists (hint: I really don’t)?

The most beautiful thing about it, though, is the hydrangea blooms on the back. Designed by Wendell August designer Emily Hendrie, you can find this hydrangea pattern on many of their pieces, along with orchids, peonies, violets, and other beautiful flowers.

Wendell August artisans have been creating unique, one-of-a-kind gifts at their Pennsylvania workshop using the same 8 step process since 1923. In fact, their forge is America’s oldest. These beautiful pieces would be perfect for a wedding gift – this candle plate would be perfect, birthday – like this Celebration Large Oval Baroque Tray – or mother’s day gift, because I know that my family should get me anything out of the Regalia Collection, or a housewarming gift like this Classic Filigree Small Baroque Tray. In fact, since I’ll be having a housewarming here soon, get with me and I’ll give you my wish list. Just kidding (no, really, I want everything)!

While I wait for all the fab gifts to roll in, I’ll be sporting my bracelet around town and getting plenty of compliments.
