I really like the 'friendship bracelet stack' It is something that you can wear every day. It is casually classy. I pair it with my 'labradorite wrist malas' (another Dharma shop product) When I look at my wrist, I feel happy. I wondered if the silver beads on the friendship bracelet would change color after a while. But I have had mine for a month or two, and they are shiny and bright. It may take you a while to learn how to adjust the slip knot fit on your own, but once you get it (don't use your teeth) It is easy. The friendship stack runs smaller. I just expand the slip knot a little. Hindsight 20/20, I would have asked them to customize it and make it a little larger. The craftsmanship on one of the braids was off a little, but I never complained, I love them too much to send them back for repair.
