  • beautiful!

    I bought these as a gift ...but changed my mind when I saw them and am keeping them for myself. They are beautiful ...you can't really see in the picture, but the beads on the outside of the bracelet are shiny ..irridescent sort of. really nice bracelets, would make a great gift, came in a timely manner. no problems at all. oh, and you can't tell they are paper ...they feel like a bead.

  • Great bracelets

    These are very cute - I use them to layer with other bracelets and I am loving them. I bought all four. I expected the worldstock jewelry to be possibly flimsy and easy to break but these seem like they will hold up for a while. there are natural blemishes on the paper and you can see the white but they are beautiful and natural. great buy. yay!

    • Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Yes, the yellow is a bit greenish

    • How accurate was the sizing? they are a little snug but will stretch over time - relatively sturdy it seems
