Category: Clothing/Jewelry/Bracelets

Jade has an ancient history in Mesoamerica, where it was used by cultures from the Olmec to the Maya to the Aztec. It symbolized life and death and was used to make figurines, jewelry, and even inlays for teeth. The Maya believed that a jade bead would provide passage through the underworld. Because conquering Spaniards were more interested in gold, the sources of ancient Mesoamerican jade were lost for hundreds of years. In 1998, Hurricane Mitch, one of the most powerful hurricanes in modern history, exposed boulder-size jade deposits near Xalapa, Mexico. Archaeologists now believe this location was a major source of jade for ancient civilizations. The simple designs of these hand-carved accents let the stone’s mottled colors take center stage. Handcrafted in family workshops in Antigua, Guatemala. Stone colors may vary.

The traditional Irish claddagh ring depicts two clasped hands holding a crowned heart, symbols of love, loyalty, and friendship. The design's origins are clouded with mystery, but one of the most popular—and romantic—stories of how it came to be tells of goldsmith Robert Joyce from the village of Claddagh, who was forced into slavery after his ship was captured en route to the West Indies. Joyce's skills supposedly so impressed his master that the man offered him his freedom, his daughter's hand in marriage, and great sums of money if Joyce would stay. Joyce declined all of these temptations and returned to his betrothed in Ireland, where he presented her with this ring.

The Tuareg are a nomadic Berber tribe who live in the North African Sahara.

They're known for their engraved silver jewelry; the Tuareg subclass called Inadan means people who work with fire and metal—blacksmiths. Using only simple hand tools and implements that could be easily transported on camels (screwdrivers, nails, safety pins, files, charcoal and handheld bellows) Tuareg craftsmen have plied their trade for centuries.
