Item #34570 - approx. 7.5''
A creation story in bracelet form, the Earth Bracelets are made in Guatemala by women who have completed the Wakami Villages non-profit business program, which enables a woman to earn a steady income and, in doing so, offers her an opportunity to transform her and her family's lives, as well as her community.
Each of the bracelet's 7 individual strands is related to an aspect of creation: earth, sun, stars, water, plants and animals, boys and girls, and the Love that connects all of these things. (The bracelet comes with a pamphlet explaining the sequence.)
Made of waxed synthetic string, the bracelets are woven and knotted by hand using different techniques and feature various glass, plastic, and metal beads, along with a metal alloy charm and buttons.
Wear all 7 strands together for an earthy, hip look, or in any combination you like. Or spread the love and give one away to the first person who tells you the bracelet is cool. (The bracelets have either a button and loop or sliding slip knot closure.)
