I first spotted one of Chan Luu's wrap bracelets on one of my favorite yoga teachers, Joy, during my most recent trip to Costa Rica. She was passing me a plate at dinner and I couldn't contain myself from letting out a very audible gasp "ohmygodiloveyourbraceletwherisitfrom?!!"... She immediately unwrapped the luscious leather and silver piece from her wrist and handed it to me. It was lust at first sight.
What I wasn't expecting was the weight of it - heavy enough to make it feel uber-luxe - a far cry from your typical light h&m fare. Another bonus is that the 10-wrap version Joy was sporting could be worn as a necklace or belt.
I'm obssessed (clearly as I never usually write more than a sentence in my posts!) and am putting in a formal request to my family/dave/friends for the gray leather/gold vermeil combo for christmas this year... someone... please... sigh.
