This bracelet — which looks like Lucite, but I can’t be sure — actually turned me off at first glance. But the more I looked at it, the more it became reminiscent of the carefree summer afternoons of childhood, when a young girl could play with accessories and not care whether they looked like they were from Claire’s, or whether they were age-appropriate, or whether they matched the rest of what she was wearing.

This bracelet, in some ways, is all of those things. And that’s what makes it so wonderful.
