You’ve seen leaf bracelets in the past, but this one is a favorite of ours for two reasons. First, it’s a pretty accent for your wedding day (especially with the addition of pearls) but it also works well for everyday wear, too. It’s handmade by the lovely ladies of Rustic Gem Jewelry and is our favorite from their collection.
