Our Penguin bracelet was inspired by the recognizable black and white color pattern of all penguin species. This bracelet is made from white howlite and black onyx semi-precious stones.
Profits from this bracelet will benefit the Global Penguin Society and penguin conservation around the world.
There are 18 recognized species of penguins who inhabit the world - five are listed as endangered and several are listed as vulnerable by the IUCN. According to the Global Penguin Society website, the main threats to penguins are oil pollution, fishery mismanagement, habitat degradation and food availability changes potentially linked to climate change. Many of us have seen penguins in aquariums or zoos and associate them with the cold and snow. However, not all penguins live in the snow - some species live in warmer climates like South America and even Africa!
