DES MOINES – We’re just two weeks out from the great bike ride across Iowa. And RABRAI riders are never short on accessories.
A new one this year is a personalized bracelet.
They’re made of aluminum, and can be personalized just for you.
“I like to make personalized gifts for people and we came up with an idea to make a route for RAGBRAI coming up so that they could wear a memory for their time that they’ll be here in Ames,” Shelli Bryne, owner of Designs by Shelli says.
“Each bracelet is different, they’re all unique and it’s a labor of love,” Bryne says.
“It’s putting joy into something that they will be wearing, so we put as much time and effort so that it’ll be exactly what they would want in the future, but yet it’s unique enough that not every bracelet is the same and have something with your name or place that you’ve been and to bring back those memories is something that brings so much joy and peace to me and my family,” she says.
Shelli Bryne sells the bracelets on Etsy, or you can buy them during RAGBRAI’s stop in Ames, where they’ll have a stand on Main Street.
