ure, jewelry is fun — but can it tell the world who you are? Pieces of Me thinks so. The jewelry company creates cuff bracelets and earrings that empower people by building their self-confidence. With 30 different icon designs each representing a specific personality trait (easy-going, leader, passionate, sassy, strong, etc.), “you see the icons and they are a reminder of your strengths. It’s a boost of positivity,” said Elsa Vogel, founder of the company. “You know that’s who you are. If it’s a gift, someone sees those positive traits in you. It’s a time to remember your self-worth,” Vogel said. You can purchase single cuff bracelets with one personality stamped all the way around or cuff bracelet sets, such as the True Friend set, which has both a loyal and a compassionate cuff. Custom cuff bracelets even let you pick four traits to show off at once. Material options include 14K gold-filled, brass, rose gold and sterling silver. They’re perfect for gift giving, especially for milestone occasions such as graduations, birthdays or bridal showers. Head to buypiecesofme.com and start your jewelry journey.
