My name's Emily, I am a HUGE RBF/Ska fan. I also make my own jewelry, so I wanted to sort of intertwine the two things I love. RBF is great, they are super nice, and I decided I wanted to make a cool bracelet to support them, show off my love for them. I'm wearing my own right now! So, support a fan, an entrepreneur, a 17yr old who needs money for college, ska, and Reel Big Fish, all at the same time!

Thanks guys.
