Chocolate and coin jewelry from foreign land

coin bracelet on hand holding chocolate

            Yup I'm a choco-holic, no doubt about it! I recently discovered this Chocolate
            Mexicano samper of chocolate shaped discs. I'm talking stone ground
            chocolate with true grit.

            Taza Chocolate is handmade in Maryland but uses Mexicano
            spices - chipotle chili and guajillo chili. The sampler includes 8 bold flavors
            that range from spicy to sweet to savory. Yummm!

             Enjoying Mexicano chocolate while wearing my coin bracelet with coins from 
             foreign lands was meant to be.

When wall art matches your bracelets

When wall art matches your bracelets - you want to wear both!

Those lovely shades of green are reminniscent of nature. They feel so tranquil and soothing.
When I was restocking jewelry recently at Mindfulnest in Burbank, CA I came across this
gorgeous painting. I had to take a picture!

By the way, these bracelets can also be used with essential oils. Just add a drop of two 
of your favorite on any of the brown wood beads. Re-apply as needed!

Black and white coasters look smart.

Black and white polka-dot rocks are just fun and cheerful.
