When June rolls around, the Fresh Tangerine jewelry studio turns into a non-stop bracelet making party. For six years, Fresh Tangerine’s designer, Kim Kogane, has been creating a custom bracelet for runners in the Hightail Half Marathon. Held in Kim’s hometown of Anchorage, Alaska, the race’s sponsor, Skinny Raven Sports, was one of the first supporters of Fresh Tangerine!
The race is the only one exclusively for women in Alaska and is a fun, empowering experience for everyone involved. Skinny Raven Sports creates a supportive atmosphere where women of all fitness levels can train together & then celebrate their success with post-race mimosas & a party!
Each year, a new bracelet design is given to runners in lieu of a medal, so they can wear their achievements every day. This year’s bracelet is a sterling silver cuff showcasing the race coordinates, embossed by hand in our Seattle studio. Here are photos of Adriana in the studio, hammering and polishing the bracelets before all 900 of them were shipped from Seattle to Anchorage!
