Native Californian and San Luis Obispo resident Courtney Helena started designing Apple Watch bands in 2015, after she fell in love with the wearable tech, but was dismayed with the lack of stylish bands on the market. As she wore her creations around town, she caught the attention of many friends and family, who urged her to sell the bands to the public. Spark*l was born - the perfect mix of a spark (idea) and a beautiful design. It brings fashion to the Apple Watch, while still keeping the original, practical focus.
Spark*l started with the gorgeous Kristi braided wrap band. The boho style was influenced by Courtney’s close friend, Kristi, who passed away from breast cancer. Courtney was also a longtime collector of Caroline Rocha bracelets when she approached Caroline asking to create a crystalized Apple Watch cuff. Caroline Rocha x Spark*l was an exclusive collaboration that launched Courtney into developing her own style with the unique Upcycled Designer Apple Watch cuffs. Although the collaboration has ended, Caroline was an inspiration and mentor that helped make the company what it is today. Spark*l Bands is excited to offer high quality, wearable tech accessories for those with an appreciation for style and design.
Spark*l has been creating and shipping watchbands all over the world. Each band is hand crafted with love in San Luis Obispo, CA.
