There seems to be a new trend set upon the wristlets of ladies today. Fashion has opened its holy gates and taken inspiration from iconic saints creating fashion with robes, rosaries, and even pictures. One of the most classic forms that anyone can buy and show off is the Saint Bracelet. However, it’s quite unlikely you’ll find these at a Sunday Mass, so where to look? Fret not! There are a number of places and stores where you can buy Saint Bracelets.
Usually there are tons of little market shops that have a plethora of handmade items and trinkets where you can grab one of these guys. Prices at your local knick-knack shops won’t be too expensive . Make sure to check out the any street carts as well as the stands. Also feel free to ask people in the area where you can find them if you're having no luck in a particular area of the market.
Yes, the Mecca of local department store fashion can also house trend setting bobbles and bits here. Such stores as Claire’s, Ice, Hot Topic, Wet Seal or even Charlotte Russe carry these bracelets. They also have a range of different sizes and colored beads on the bracelets to choose from. Again, prices are cheap, but because they’re with a larger corporate store, they can range anywhere from $7.00-$12.00.
When you’re passing along between rollercoaster hopping, you might find yourself whizzing by a kiosk or two. Make sure to stop here and snoop around for saint bracelets. They usually pack a wide variety of styles, and surprisingly, they’re not too expensive in price. Some theme parks with these kiosks are Universal Studios and Citywalk in Los Angeles and Florida, Six Flags Amusement Parks, and Downtown Disney.
There are a few areas in the country where you can probably have a better chance of finding these bracelets then others. For instance, Texas, New Mexico, Southern California, and Arizona are all great spots to find these guys. Because this style of jewelry was inspired partially by Mexican culture, you can find these items and others dawning saints in places such as San Antonio, San Diego, or Olivera St. in Downtown Los Angeles. Try checking out the local areas that contain Spanish culture around where you live and see their markets. You’ll be surprised at the amazing jewelry they have and the prices are just as great!
It’s always easier to buy, but making a bracelet can be rewarding and can give a chance to mix up the traditional designs out there! Go to your local craft store such as A.C. Moore, Michaels, JoAnn’s Fabrics, or even a bead house, and see if they have any kits on making saint bracelets. You can find stores online by simply typing in 'saint bracelet making kits' or 'bead stores' to see what's available around you, or for purchase.
