Handcrafted in Thailand by our team of really nice people. Each AWB is made by a team of 20+ artisans, each bangle is hand made, each is a labor of love. AWBs are made with organic products, at times a slight color differentiation might occur, this is only natural as humidity and temperature conditions do affect the outcome. Our Serenity Prayer Bead is made with uncoated brass which as time goes by, might develop a verdi-gris patina. Our point is that AWB are a product that will age, develop character, and will remain beautiful...just like our BuDhaGirls.
