If one, or all, of the Great Lakes, holds a special place in her heart, then you will too with this gift. The larger Earth Bead of these bracelets contains earth elements collected by hand from the location(s) of your choice. Each Earth Bead is hand-crafted, and literally one of a kind. The surrounding beads, in this case, are made of black onyx and black agate. There are lots of different color combination duos from which to choose. All of them have an Earth Bead on each bracelet, which you can have filled sand from Huron, Ontario, Michigan, Erie, Superior, or even a little of all of the above. What a lovely reminder of time spent together at the shore.
