A hummingbird flew into my van as I was parked in the Anza Borrego desert. Hummingbirds are said to be a good omen, and I’ve been told by a Navajo woman I crossed paths with, in a little shop in New Mexico, that hummingbirds are a symbol of protection in her culture. Wear this bracelet to bring you protection on your journey.
This piece is made with individually selected turquoise stones, freshwater pearls, and seed beads - strung on waxed linen cord using a Shambhala sliding knot closure. (Scroll down to find out more about the stones.)
Making this bracelet is like sewing beads onto string while putting together a puzzle. Unlike typical loom bead bracelets, the various sizes of the natural stones make each line of beads demand precision, innovation, and tightly sewn craftsmanship. Each and every stone is carefully picked out to fit its space.
This bracelet is adjustable to fit most adult wrists.
