I am a true crafter thru and thru. I feel in love with this bracelet in California at the Heller Estate Organic Vineyard.http://www.hellerestate.com/This is a very unique winery located in the Carmel Valley. The winery is completely organic. It uses small wasps...not the mean kind to help control the pests on the grapes. They planted French Prune Trees to attract this type of wasp to the vineyard resulting in no pesticides being used. Their tractor runs on ethanol. They are very conscientious of the environment and what they produce. Heller Estates describe the winery as a marriage of art, sculptures, and wine. The place is just full of all kinds of art and has it's own sculpture garden. On another cool note, it is part of the Free Trade program http://www.friendshipbridge.org/ and supports women crafters in other countries. This bracelet was made by a women in Guatemala. It is so beautiful. The beading is just extraordinary. It cost $20 and can be purchased at Heller Estate 1-800-625-8466. I love the idea of globally empowering women.
