Helping Hands Bracelet


To support those who have been impacted by the Australian bushfire crisis, James St is honoured to work with local makers Blue & Grae on a limited-edition Helping Hands bracelet.

100% of proceeds from every $15 bracelet sold will be donated to charity – split evenly between the Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal (FRRR) and NSW Wildlife Information, Rescue and Education Service (WIRES). Supporting both communities in need and wildlife recovery.

Product Info

The Helping Hands bracelet is made with regionally sourced materials, this small gesture aims to help those affected most, as the community and environmental need for support does not end when the fires go out.

All bracelets are made from the finest quality Australian leather, which as a natural product, each grain and colour is unique and develops in character as it ages. The bracelets feature solid brass hardware and hand embossed with ‘Helping Hands’ on the top. One size fits all – measuring 23cm long and 1.5cm wide, the bracelet features two clasps for comfortable unisex sizing.

All bracelets were also handmade with love in Brisbane, at Blue & Grae’s studio. Members of our community volunteered their time over two Sunday’s to cut, stamp, and apply buttons to each bracelet. A community effort that was extremely rewarding to all who took part.
