Put Your Hands Together

hands

It’s a housekeeping day. I found these two bracelets whilst digging through boxes of jewels to see what could be sold at the Trinity Bellwoods Yard Sale, what should be donated to the Sally Ann and what is just straight up junk. I’ve always loved the little torque bracelet, but it turns my arm green. I did not even know I had the adjustable leather “embrace”let. You know you have too many jewels when You can’t remember what you have. Either that or they are reproducing.

I’ve always been interested in jewelry that uses the hand as a symbol — Hamsa charms, fede rings, hand-shaped, Frida Kalho earrings. Two hands clasped, like in the leather bracelet, is meant to convey peace, alliance and friendship.It’s like a little hug for your wrist.
