A couple of weeks back, I posted that I needed help with product photos. Several photographers offered their talents for FREE! We would like to thank Dale Schlegel Jr for these unbelievable shots of Bill's autism inspired bracelets. These photos are used to list these bracelets in our online store and they look great! THANK YOU Dale! ... See MoreSee Less
