It was Oscar Wilde who said,
''Keep love in your heart. A life without it is like a sunless garden when the flowers are dead.''
And it was Barbara A.T. Hoff who designed this gorgeous bracelet as a reminder.
Barbara and her bevy of women artisans in the Shawangunk Mountains of New York have been creating beautiful jewelry for 33 years. Like everything they create, this bracelet is made out of solid brass.
As part of their ''penny for your thoughts'' collection, a miniature penny charm dangles from one side of the medallion (1.375'' diam.), adding even more character to this distinctive piece.
As much as I adore the style, I love the sentiment even more because just think of what life would be like if we all kept love in our hearts. (Approx. 7'' circumference, with a 2.25'' diam.)
