Your clothes and accessories should make you feel good when you wear them. But what if they actually said (or read) something to lift you up? Little Words Project is the brand behind the original “words bracelets.” OK, more specifically, the beaded bracelets feature words and phrases like “keep going,” “lucky” and their latest to sell out, “be f****** nice.”
The bracelets are meant to be uplifting and inspire kindness and authenticity. However, there’s more to it than fun words and phrases.
Each bracelet comes with a small gold charm, and on the back of it, there’s a tracking ID you can register on the Little Words Project’s website. Wear your bracelet around for a while, and when you feel like you’ve conquered your word or are simply ready to let it go, pass it on to a friend. Your friend can then register the bracelet to themselves, pass it on to someone else and so on. Eventually, you can check in on your bracelet to see where it’s ended up. It’s a little like the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants — but with bracelets.
Founder and CEO Adriana Carrig started the brand nearly eight years ago in her parents’ basement. And in November 2021, she opened up her first brick-and-mortar store in New York City’s swanky West Village neighborhood.
“I started Little Words Project with the intention of creating a brand that served a greater purpose beyond selling bracelets. I sought out to build a community that represents some simple truths of mine,” she wrote on the brand’s website, citing kindness, self-love, authenticity, collaboration and inclusivity as her goals. “While we’ve experienced so much growth over the years, these beliefs have remained as true as ever. I hope your Little Word brings you all the positivity and love that you bring to us.”
Today, the brand has also expanded to make necklaces, key chains, phone charms, rings and more. Plus, it’s had some really cool collabs with brands like Care Bears, By Bruno and Boss Baby Brody.
All of the bracelets stretch, but they come in two sizes as well, including small/medium and medium/large. And depending on the types of beads — pearl, gold, rainbow or gems — they range in price from $20 to $35.
All that said, Little Words Project is offering 25% off site-wide leading up to Black Friday. Simply sign up to shop the early sale with your email and phone number. You’ll get free shipping on orders over $75, which you’ll probably hit because they’re cool and they’re worth it (just like you 😉).
OK, OK, enough gushing. But seriously, Little Words Project’s bracelets make great gifts. Stock up to build your own set and get some for your friends and family, too.
