Boston’s North Shore is home to a long shipbuilding and seafaring history. From her waterfront studio in Salem, the designer of this antique-inspired bracelet looks out at a reproduction 1812 schooner and the homes of 19th-century sea captains. This bracelet evokes the shipwrecked treasure rumored to exist off the coast. Reproduction brass coins and a vintage brass chain—inspired by sailors’ knots—are treated with saltwater to create a verdigris patina and give the bracelet an antique aura.

      Comments about Ship's Treasure Bracelet:

      I'm glad I purchased it on sale, but it is still not worth the cost. The metal is very lightweight, and the finish looks very artificial (that's a kind word for it). I beg to disagree with the statement describing this bracelet having been "treated with saltwater to create a verdigris patina": this bracelet I received was treated to globs of sage green-coloured matte paint. As it will cost me about a third of its cost to return it, I have decided to keep it, and so experimented with rubbing off some of this green paint. Using a rough cloth, some of the green rubbed off, but the patina is still decidedly fake. I'm hoping that after a bit more abrasion this bracelet might be wearable.

      Tibetan Mantra Copper Bracelet
      Tibetan Mantra Copper Bracelet
      (Based on 2 reviews)
      Category: Jewelry/Bracelets

      This handsome handcrafted bracelet combines traditional Eastern medicine with one of the most significant mantras in Buddhism for an accent that is as meaningful as it is beautiful. Saying, or even reading, the words Om mani padme hum is believed to invoke the Buddha of Compassion, called Avalokitesvara in Sanskrit or Chenrezig in Tibetan. Some traditions within Eastern medicine use copper and brass for their purported power to alleviate arthritis and increase circulation. These two beliefs intertwine in a hand-hammered copper, brass, and white metal cuff. The Tibetan script for Om mani padme hum is overlaid on the face of the bracelet.
