I’m obsessed with stacking bracelets. And lots of them. My big sis introduced me to my latest faves, Bourbon & Boweties bracelets. They were hands down my favorite gift of the year. I fell hard in love and started my collection.
Bourbon & Boweties bracelets are meant to be worn up your arm and stacked with many different colors and stones. I can’t decide which design is my favorite: is it my shotgun shell or the dainty pearl or the chunky purple stone? I guess it depends on my mood. Here’s how it all started.
Straight from the South, designer and owner Carley Ochs started making bangles for friends and family after she discovered a market of fabulous gems and stones while she was abroad in Shanghai. Her design was to hand make souvenirs for her friends from the jade she stumbled upon while in China. From which, the first Bourbon and Boweties bangle was born. Unbeknown to Carley, that minute gesture of friendship bowed into a whirlwind of success and humility. Praised for her craftsmanship, Carley took her first batch of freshly made bangles to the heart of the South in a high end South Carolina boutique. That day in Charleston Bourbon and Boweties made its mark and continued to grow as a jewelry line that will forever be “Made by Proud Southern Hands.”
