When I was younger, I would wear my Mama's Italian leather bracelets (similar to these ones). I loved how glamorous and grown up I felt wearing them. She would get mad, as they were special and I was not supposed to steal them.
This past June we were visiting a few European countries and Italy was one of them. The thought never even crossed my mind that we would be able to find these bracelets, yet we did at the Scuola del Cuoio (Institute of Leather) in Florence. I was overjoyed at the thought that I would be able to have my very own fancy bracelets!
These are the ones I got.
My Mama got a few of these ones, more for me to covet!
