      My pieces arrived today, and they are incredible. The bracelet isso comfortable, and I love the different textures in Luminous Transcendence. Thank you!

      I got my Luminous Ground bracelet in today and I love it! The beads have a good weight to them and the texture of the ground beads is really something.

      Hello Nikita,
      Yes, that's a great idea. Give me a few days to put it together. In the meantime, there are more pictures of the designs on AKSHA's Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/artaksha.

      With the exception of the bracelet 'Trancendence', all the designs are a combination of two beads--'Luminous' and either 'Abundance', 'Ground', or 'Space' (see the photo on AKSHA's main page).

      When you pledge, you don't need to make your selection right away. I will send a survey to all Backers at the close of the campaign to get your selections, and I will either attach photos to that email or provide a link to a simple catalogue. Cheers, Minette

      Could you please make photos of all variations of bracelets, earings and rings? They all are so beautiful so it is really hard to make choice.
      And thanks a lot! It would be a perfect gift for my friend.

      Hi John, Thanks for your pledge and for sharing your excellent idea! I'll definitely keep cuff-links in mind for a future design. Once we've produced this line, there could be lots of enticing possibilities. :)
      Stay tuned to artaksha.com. Cheers, Minette

      would love to see some cufflink sets ... maybe in barbell style so with two different balls - so you could reverse them!

      These are just stunning! Thank goodness I have a month to figure out which bracelet I want.

      Hi Helios, Thanks for your pledge! That is indeed a good idea, others have asked as well. So yes--a nice card will come with every piece/ set that explains the inspiration for the design and the project. Please feel free to send any other ideas our way. Cheers, Minette

      I just found this kickstarter and I'm fairly excited about it. The bracelet will make an excellent gift! I'm just wondering if a card will be included with some backstory? If not, it might be a good idea ;)
