This Chinese bracelet is very important to me. Chinese luck charms Feng Shui bracelets are not only pretty to wear but also promise many benefits including attracting wealth, better health, and improving relationships. Over time, more and more people are discovering their beauty and amazing advantages. For me, it is very important because it protects me. It is believed to absorb and transmit negative energies, as well as attract a lot of money.  This is my story about my Chinese bracelet. For me, it is even more special because my best friend gave it to me. I met her in 2018 when I arrived here in the United States and went to live with her in Florida. We became great friends but at the end of 2020 she traveled to Brazil to visit her family. Before traveling, she gave me the bracelet as a gift and said, "This is for you to remember me when I'm far away." She was special to me. When I was sad, she told me beautiful words. Remembering her makes me sad because she died two years ago.
