We have realized that the AWB® color we have been missing and the one you most have asked for is finally a reality: Graphite. Luxurious shades of deep gray to black are captured in our Graphite All Weather Bangle set, six divine bangles to set your daily intentions to. The metamorphosis in Earth's carbon compounds creates this naturally occurring mineral giving us the inspiration to capture it in our iconic AWB®. Graphite is loaded with elegance and is perfect for combining with our core AWB® colors: Gold, Silver, or Rose Gold AWB®. For maximum style combine Graphite with Meteorite or Plume, giving you a pop of urban chic.
Handcrafted in Thailand by our team of really nice people. Each Graphite All Weather Bangle is made by a team of 20+ artisans, each bangle is hand made, each is a labor of love. Graphite All Weather Bangles® (AWB®) are made with organic products, at times a slight color differentiation might occur, this is only natural as humidity and temperature conditions do affect the outcome. Our Serenity Prayer Bead is made with uncoated brass which as time goes by, might develop a verdi-gris patina. Our point is that Graphite All Weather Bangles are a product that will age, develop character, and will remain beautiful...just like our BuDhaGirls.
BuDhaGirl Graphite All Weather Bangle bracelets are made of polyvinyl carbonate tubing that is a semi-flexible material, so there is a little give when you slide the bangles over your hand. The key to deciding your size...how the bangles go over your hand, not the size of your wrist.
The Serenity Prayer is not new, although in modern times it is attributed to Reinhold Niebuhr. Epictetus had a version, the Jewish philosopher Solomon ibn Gabirol had a version, and even W.W. Bartley had a version with a Mother Goose rhyme dated 1695. The prayer is simple yet powerful:
God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference.
You can wear your Graphite All Weather Bangles® anywhere because they are waterproof and soundless. Our Graphite All Weather Bangle bracelets are made with gold leaf suspended in flexible, polyvinyl carbonate rings, and then sealed with our exclusive BuDhaGirl Serenity Prayer bead, allowing them to go from the pool, to the office, and to the airport (they’re TSA proof) all without needing to leave your wrist.
Serenity Prayer: May I have the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
Mindful Glamour Ritual: Pause...Slide your All Weather Graphite Bangle bracelets on one by one. Focus on being present, and in the Now. Each intention you make will be with you throughout the day...Go, Be it.
Thought: Inner peace can be attained no matter the circumstance. We must live in the present moment and take joy from this, keeping in mind that intentions do influence outcomes.
