 Bracelet from the Phillipines.

This bracelet came all the way from the phillipines and my Uncle bought me as a gift when he visited there. Local women had set up a jewlery stand on the side of the road to make a living from passing tourists. Few materials were used and it is a symbol of "love". I feel like I am connected to that place even though I was never there.
