Anyone who knows Cliff, knows he gets excited about things made in the US - he gets even MORE fired up about things made right here in Michigan. So you can imagine how happy we were to find these great looking collegiate beads (made to fit on your Pandora bracelet as well as many others).
These beads are the brain child of Dave Schowalter from the East side of the state. (Dave owns a great store over there: Miner's Den). He started developing the beads with the goal of making them in the USA/Michigan (even though he admits it has probably cost him big money to do this.)
Anway - these sterling beads are made in the Grand Rapids area. They are fully licensed by the respective schools (which means they benefit from sales).
WIN - WIN - WIN!
