Give the Framingham bracelet as a gift and support the Framingham Cultural Council

The Framingham Bracelet, crafted in sterling silver by Bell Enterprises of Framingham, was designed as a classic piece of jewelry to reflect Framingham’s rich history.

The Victorian double-tulip design on the Framingham Bracelet was inspired by the decorative forms on the restored historic iron railing surrounding the Downtown Common.

This site was once a burial ground for Native Americans and is listed in the US Registry of Historic Places. It was redeveloped to provide a location for a variety of cultural events.

Proceeds from the bracelet support the work of the Framingham Cultural Council.

This elegant bracelet makes a treasured gift for any holiday or special occasion. It is priced at $150.00 with $60.00 tax deductable. If mailed, there is an additional charge for postage and insurance.
