Pura Vida bracelets



Pura Vida bracelets are a great way to show your support of a wonderful cause (organization) or just to add a touch of fun and color to any outfit!  If you are interested in the story behind any of the bracelets I have (those that support a charity or organization) I have created a page with the information on each.  You can learn more about Pura Vida on that page.

Please note – I will not be restocking the Pura Vida bracelets! As each bracelet sells out they will not be restocked. Get them while they are still available.

Pura Vida bracelets each come with a story.  I may not know each story, but I know the Pura Vida story and it’s one worth telling!

Pura Vida, the business, came about after 2 college students from California went to Costa Rica and discovered 2 men that were selling bracelets on the street.  The bracelets were simply handmade using colorful strings.  The men selling them did not live in the best of conditions and the 2 college students (Paul and Griffin) asked them to make a supply of bracelets that they would bring back to the U.S. and try to sell.  This relatively small business transaction turned into a very lucrative business for all involved.  The men in Costa Rica (Jorge and Joaquin) who make the bracelets are now able to live a more comfortable lifestyle, and are selling several thousand bracelets per week – all because of a chance meeting years ago.

Each Pura Vida bracelet is unique and includes various color combinations.  They have fun names and many of them even represent a specific cause such as Lyme Disease Awareness, Diabetes Awareness, Paralysis Awareness, Depression Awareness, Breast Cancer and many more!  Show your support for just about any cause with a delicate and simple bracelet.  Each Pura Vida bracelet comes with an iron-coated copper “P” charm and is easily adjustable.

Direct from their website: The phrase “Pura Vida” (pu·ra vi·da) means pure life in Spanish. Enjoying life slowly, celebrating good fortune and not taking anything for granted embodies the Pura Vida Lifestyle. It’s about being free and living life to it’s fullest with no regrets or taking anything for granted; it’s an attitude. Pura Vida directly translates into “Pure Life”, simple as that.

I’m proud to be able to be associated with such an incredible company that is doing amazing things.  Not only have they helped Jorge and Joaquin change their life completely, they are also a member of One Percent for the Planet and donates a portion of its proceeds to the Surfrider Foundation, a grassroots foundation dedicated to cleaning up beaches and oceans around the world.

Each bracelet is:

  • 100% waterproof
  • wax-coated
  • iron-coated copper “P” charm
  • adjustable from 2-5 inches in diameter Once you buy one – trust me, you will want more!  More designs will be added to my shop regularly so keep checking to see what’s new.
