Make A Wish and Carry It with You

Have you ever made a wish? I believe everyone did when you were still a little kid. But where did our wishes go as we are growing up? We haven’t made a wish for a long time, and sadly we almost forgot all the wishes we ever made! But I still can remember the beautiful moments when I made a wish at small ages – secretly writing down on my notebook, or under my study desk. There is a brand I want to introduce to you all that you can carry the wishes with you, so that you will never lost it and forget it. It is Wishbeads.

How Wishbeads work?

  • Write it.

Visualize your greatest wish coming true. See it clearly in your mind’s eye. Write down your wish using the kit that is provided along with your jewelry.

  • Wear it.

Roll up the paper. Tuck it inside your beautiful gemstone jewelry. Wear your wish every day as a powerful visual reminder of the intention you’ve set.

  • Witness.

Each day, whenever you see your jewelry, you’ll be reminded to take action, to live purposefully toward realizing your wish. Witness the power of you!

Fire Recycled Glass Bracelet

This collection features African recycled glass beads handmade by members of the Krobo Tribe in Ghana, Africa. Using centuries-old techniques, they form each bead by compressing the glass into a dry grain, heating the grain, and pouring into porcelain molds, before adding the stem of the cassava leaf to form the hole. The final heating burns the stem away and fuses the glass together. Vibrant colors and irregular shapes of each bead create one-of-a-kind pieces.

Write down your deepest wish, tuck it inside your Wishbeads bracelet, and wear it as a daily reminder to take action.

  • Features solid brass cylinder and screw cap
  • Includes 5 wishpapers
  • Hand strung beads and clasp
  • Bracelet lengths vary between 18.5cm-19cm

Pakahana Love – Bling By Billie!

One-of-kind creations from Billie Fischer – the founder Alexa’s MOM! Inspired to stay creative and active during the pandemic, Billie got busy re-imagining the extra beads we had on hand. Each style is unique, handmade with love. Get them while you can!

Write down your deepest wish, tuck it inside your Wishbeads bracelet, and wear it as a daily reminder to take action.

  • Features solid brass cylinder and screw cap
  • Includes 5 wishpapers
  • Hand strung beads and clasp
  • Lengths vary: 18.3cm – 18.7cm

Looking for a cute gift for your kids? Let’s skip the toys this time, there are some other great ideas that make it a special and meaningful gift. Wishbeads has kids bracelets to let the kiddos carry the their wishes with them all the time, and also they look super cute.

Kids Rainbow Wishes Bracelet

Tuck a special wish or goal, or even your words of encouragement, inside the special rainbow cylinder. Each time they peek at their wrist, they’ll remember what’s inside! Perfect for calming hearts and minds, so they can focus on what they want to create in this world.

  • Features chrome-plated brass cylinder and screw cap
  • Includes 5 wishpapers
  • Hand strung beads and clasp
  • Length: 16.5 cm

Parental Supervision Required – Tighten cap before wearing.

WARNING: CHOKING HAZARD – Small parts. Not for children under 6 years.

Wishbeads is so much more than an inspirational jewelry line. Whatever you want to create in your life—whether it’s big or small, easy or difficult—you have the power to make it happen. There’s nothing more powerful than a human mind and heart. With positivity and determination, you can make your own wishes come true.

Make a wish, do the work, and watch it come true.

MINIMALIST FASHION WITH AN EDGE

The designers of Marcellamoda are inspired by the ethos of buying fewer pieces, but better ones: the hard-working, seasonless wardrobe staples that can take you from day to night in an instant.

About Marcellamoda

At Marcellamoda, they believe less clutter in one’s closet means more space and time for beautiful experiences. They are passionate about creating timeless, sustainable designs. It’s a special kind of uniqueness Marcellamoda aspires to. Marcellamoda refers to it as “Minimalism with an Edge”.

NYC-inspired Design

Marcellamoda’s minimalist clothing is informed by a life lived in the big city. At Marcellamoda, the design team is headed by Marcella’s granddaughters, Siyana and Marta, two sisters who came to New York to pursue careers that spoke to their passions. Living in New York deeply influenced the design sensibility. Like the city, itself, the garments combine clean lines and geometric construction with the occasional surprise of asymmetry. Adopted New Yorkers, Marcellamoda likes to think that they bring forward the best of both the European pasts and American present – the result being an elegant but edgy “upscale street” style.
