Celebrate Summer with red, white and blue (and orange, yellow, green, indigo and violet). This season we’re embracing the full spectrum of trims and stacking them sky high.

Just a few rules for this arm party:
1. The more the merrier
2. This isn’t a junior high dance – let your bracelets mingle amongst themselves
3. Get Cray (and by “cray”, we mean Crayon…every color if at all possible)
4. Spike the punch with some hardware, tassels, etc.
5. The more the merrier
