          Jewelers on the island of Java work in open-air studios creating the sterling silver beads that have been a local art form since the 16th century. This bracelet begins with a technique called repoussé where designs are hammered into a sheet of metal. The textured metal is then curled into a long cylindrical bead, and a mold is made. Sterling silver beads cast from this original mold are then slid onto a braided leather cord to make a handsome bracelet that flatters both men and women. Available in two sizes. Made in Indonesia.

          Portugal first enacted laws protecting its cork forests, or montados, in 1209, centuries before ecological responsibility was a common goal. It takes 25 years for a cork oak to mature, after which it can be sustainably harvested for 150 years or more. Here, Portuguese artisans pair strips of cork with faux turquoise and silver-tone metal in a unisex style.

          (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.
