Project by Karen Marshall
Sample by Cara Scopazzi

The word encompassing all things cute in Japanese is “kawaii,” which we think perfectly describes this bracelet. Inspired by her own Japanese heritage and her love of this little Kokeshi Doll bead from Green Girl Studios, Cara designed a bracelet that’s striking and bold and…very kawaii.
