Bhati Beads are handmade in Margaret Maggard’s Wisconsin studio, about a half mile from the shores of Lake Michigan. Margaret began creating her yoga-inspired bracelets in 2002 while helping her then 10-year-old son study the solar system, which inspired the nine brass beads that are strung onto the bracelets above. The bead shape is a nod to her father, who was a manufacturer’s rep for nuts and bolts. The silk is hand dyed in the U.S. and each piece is unique. Keep your eyes peeled for the new collaboration that just landed in stores and online.
