2 years have passed away since I created this blog and since when I told you, in almost every article, how important it is to leave your personal touch on every moment of your life. Eventually, all that remains after us, is our image from the memory of our loved ones. Therefore, it is important to create an image about yourself that speaks from itself, to tell people who you are without the need for words.
This thing was noticed by those from Soufeel.com, a brand launched in 2009 and worldwide in 2011, which makes sterling silver jewelry. Why I say that? Because they didn’t created 500 different sterling silver bracelets for 500 different types of people, but they decided to offer each person the possibility to create its own favorite jewelry. I talk about their famous bracelet with a clips that can be customized by each client as he or she wishes. The customer can choose from over 500 models of charms and can combine them arbitrary. Calculating the number of combinations of 500 taken by 1, 2, 3 and 4, I concluded that there would be about 2.593.864.875 (billions) possibilities for creating unique bracelets. And this thing, just as a matter of fact…
Everyone has an identity, everyone is an amalgam of features. All these features put together, create a being that can be a parent, a friend or… an unknown person. Therefore, even on the outside people look the same, people remain unique. This raises our natural desire to tell the world about usu, to show who we are, to expose our uniqueness in words and deeds. We all have preferences that tempts us, like all the things we like, whether material or not. Some adore their zodiac sign, others love to take pictures, while others put family first… Soufeel turned those personal characteristics into small 925 silver jewelries with a diameter of about 0.7 cm; They turned them in charms /talismans.
Thus, each empty bracelet can be fulfilled with small pieces of silver which represent us. The bracelet is something thet everyone has; The story, however, is unique to each one of us.
I met a lot of people who have one or more bracelets like this, but each person was blushing when I asked her “What does the bracelet represent?”. We like to be discovered, we like to show the world who we are, with or without words. Soufeel bracelet speaks for itself, for you.
I wanted very much to have such a bracelet too, before I knew about this brand. It was a thing that I saw everywhere and I wanted to know its story, but I didn’t have enought time for that, I was somehow busy with other issues. But one day, looking for “charms” on Google, I found the Soufeel.com site. My surprise was great when I also discovered the .ro website and the .com.ca one etc… I just realized that I had found an online store that could deliver worldwide such iconic products. Themselves and not through other intermediaries. The first thing I check when I’m shopping online is the page dedicated to shipping to see if it’s worth it to shop there or not. Soufeel is worth it, because if you shop over $50 the standard shipping is free. I also want to make a few references here: the standard shipping method offered by Soufeel is done by post, or rather through an international postal chain. For us the Romanians and other EU residents, the parcels should reach the “custom postal office” because the packages are coming from outside the Union. However, on the parcel is marked a minimum value (not the price) of the product so that the recipients will not be charged with extra taxes, because, let’s be honest: we buy a bracelet, we do not trade uranium 🙂
…I have another big news for you all! Two days before my package arrived, I received an email from Soufeel, that said it black on white that “from today we have available a new express shipping method (5-10 days) without extra charges.” So: Soufeel improved its shipping service so that its customers will not be the subjects of customs taxation anymore. Moreover, I’m glad that I was the person who gave you this good news! 😉
On the other hand, for an extra $13 you can enjoy free express shipping (3-7 working days) which is free if your order is over $150 OR for an extra cost of $16 you can get free DHL shipping (2-5 working days) which is free for orders over $200. Of course, the processing time is added to those days especially is we talk about the custom charms (with custom photos or engraved). Furthermore, you have 365 days to return the products if you are not satisfied.
Or freebies, as they are also called. Soufeel knows how to motivate their customers to buy more and with greater pleasure, and so, for orders over $69 you can choose between a free stopper or a free necklace, and on orders over $99 you can choose between a charm (a dolphin this time, as it changes in a certain period of time) or classic bracelet at the special price of only $10 (full price is $ 26). Hmm ..pretty detailed I would say, but I took a little piece of time (a lot actually) to make the following table, which is very useful, I think: ?

And now, my story…
Personally, I liked all the charmse from their website, but what sense does it make to buy them all? There is nothing personal in buying something just for the sake of having more..
I had to create my own story so I let myself carried away through charms and added everything I liked in the cart and in the final, in the cart were left just the things that meant something, and that matched one with each other in terms of color…

What I used: | Ce am folosit:
Why? | De ce?
1.I’m a capricorn.
Actually a very vain one. However I won’t go into details because each person praises its zodiacal sign, however, from all those 12 signs that were invented, there is no other sign to represent me better than the Capricorn one does. On the other hand, the animal which is half goat (Capra ibex) and half fish is actually really cute and fluffy. ?
2.I remember everything.
In the previous article I talked about how important my memories are. We know that the ones that are “sick” of synesthesia have a greater capacity to store memories and their related details. I personally don’t feel sick, but on the contrary, I feel special.
On the other hand, what kind of child would not like to be magic in the world..? Hm? We all want to be in a truly mystic world, to believe that there is life after death. The first “miracle” that I remember is being able to hear the sea from or in a conch. That is why I’ve choosed this charm, because it reminds me of that moment when my mother who showed me this “magic”.
3.My colorful world.
Malice? Where?! There is no such thing! Who hurts the others, who retaliates, who feeds itself from others’s sadness, knows that revenge might be sweet, but does not know that kindness is even sweeter. Therefore “my world is colorful”. Imagine all the world gray, all black… Imagine everything being bad… Oh my God…
4.To the infinite.
I want to believe that the infinite really exists. Endless life, endless kindness or love. Just read the next phrase, took from Wikipedia about Universe: “The Universe is all of time and space and its contents. The Universe includes planets, natural satellites, minor planets, stars, galaxies, the contents of intergalactic space, the smallest subatomic particles, and all matter and energy. The observable universe is about 28 billion parsecs (91 billion light-years) in diameter at the present time. The size of the whole Universe is not known and may be either finite or infinite.” Frightening, isn’t it? What’s beyond and above our known Universe? Because… our Universe must be somewhere…
We are stardust, we are made by the meteorites, we are little drops of water, we are phytoplankton. But what about our soul? From where does it came from? From the infinite?
As long as nobody took its fortune with it after death, it means that another thing must be our priority, whether God exists or not. Let’s not forget our roots, I say. We are born out of love, whether our parents have created us from desire or by mistake. Our soul is provided by someone else or something else, out of pure love. Love materializes in different things in our lives, things that we want to keep with us always. For some, love is family, for others love is a dog… whatever love means to us, love is kept in memory.
Soufeel created for those special moments the personalized charms. They can be engraved on the back and/or may contain pictures of things that mean something to us. I have chosen a photo of mine since I was a spoiled little girl, back when my plstic gray pony was the most important thing in my life. You realize that you get older when you realize that objects are not important, but feelings and deeds. You realize that you get older when the saying “every age has its pleasures’ no longer looks ugly, but seems to be true. I’ve always had an old soul and I always thought that this is not a bad thing at all. But how old can get an already aged soul? Don’t you think that it rejuvenates??
Right. We’re talking about the thickness of your wrist here. Before you order the bracelet on Soufeel you must know your wrist thickness. My wrist measured about 14.7 cm, 15 cm let’s say. To this number I had to add 1.5cm to identify the perfect bracelet for me. And something more: if you plan to fill the bracelet with charms, choose the next size. For example, my size (15 cm) would be suitable for bracelet that measures 17. But I would rather choose the 18 one. I would probably choose a 19 bracelet if we talk about the bangle one.
I hope that you enjoyed this article. You can post your comments, or why not, images with your bracelets and your stories.
