The Unlock-it Bracelet
It may be a strength you have yet to discover. The grace to handle life’s ups and downs. Or a glow that radiates from within. The Unlock-it bracelet was inspired by the Ugandan women who handcraft it. Their stories are the heart of Akola—and woven into every bracelet.
Twin crystals represent the bond between wearer and maker—a connection shared by women around the world. The magnetic clasp opens to reveal your key to unlocking your inner beauty. It will be there whenever you need it.
