Purgatory Shore Bracelets

You may have noticed that some of the names of my products are named from places around Newport, RI. Newport is very near and dear to my heart and if you haven't had the chance to get to know the why behind Green End, check out the ABOUT section. 

So, let me tell you a little story as to why I have multiple products that have to do with Purgatory Chasm....

a long time ago, in a galaxy far away...

Just kidding, but really, my parents live about two blocks from Second Beach in Middletown, RI.  This happens to be where Purgatory Chasm is located at the top of the hill that overlooks the beach. The house my parents live in has been in the family for three generations and we have grown up spending our summers in this magical little slice of untouched land. One of the adventures my cousins, my sister, and I always embarked upon was kayaking into the chasm and walking around the little beach inside of it. This is generally followed by a "gauntlet run," which is a mild white water rapid run that is to left of the chasm. So, there was already a lot of history attached to this place in my life. Fast forward to July of 2011, where my then boyfriend asked to go on a picnic, just the two of us, on top of Purgatory. Little did I know that he was about to propose to me...

With all of that said, I have a special place in my heart for these new bracelets that remind me of the rounded rocks on the Purgatory shore and so I have named them as such. I hope you love them as much as I do and I hope you add them to your Green End collection for a summery boho look!
