PeaceLoveEarth® by Annatarian® and CARE International Partner to Create Special Edition Seven Wishes Eco Bracelet: Tool for Positive Change Helps End Global Poverty
CARE Special Edition Seven Wishes Bracelet
Los Angeles - In time for the holiday season, Los Angeles-based eco-fashion and jewelry company, Annatarian®, has partnered with the leading humanitarian organization, CARE, to create a limited edition charm for the popular Seven Wishes Bracelet.

Sold exclusively through Annatarian's® jewelry website PeaceLoveEarth.com and at special events nationwide, this bracelet spreads the message of CARE’s work to empower women around the world and encourages everyone to do their part in the fight against global poverty.

"I am very excited about this opportunity to partner with CARE in the fight to end poverty and empower women to create change," designer Anna Mkhitarian said. "I am honored to donate 25% of the sale of each bracelet to support CARE’s work."

The CARE charm, made from recycled sterling silver, is a hand with an embossed heart in the palm. The bracelet is crafted from orange vintage surplus string which Ms. Mkhitarian sources from factory remnants and dyes. The charm is packaged in a recycled paper box with a hand stamped peace seal. The hand symbol of the charm represents peace, nurturing, and women’s work women around the world produce half the world’s food but only own one percent of its farmland.
Each bracelet is made in Los Angeles with love and is designed to inspire positive change. It is a tool for setting goals, affirmations, New Year’s resolutions, intentions and, of course, wishes. The wearer secures the bracelet with seven knots one for each of seven wishes. Ms. Mkhitarian recommends memorizing what each knot represents, "so you have a constant reminder of the changes you want in your life." When the bracelet falls off, tradition says, you are ready for your next phase of positive growth and it is said that your wishes will come true. You can keep the silver hand charm as a memento of the positive change you wish to see for yourself and the world.

The bracelet debuted at the O Magazine conference in San Francisco and was a huge hit with Oprah fans.
