I bought this for my wife a few months after a while sand dollar washed up at my feet while we vacationed. It was a extremely hard season for us and waves were crashing against us daily and weekly. We believe the sand dollar that found me was a gift from God, letting us know that He would keep us together despite the turbulent crashing of life’s waves. This bracelet serves as a reminder of the strength He gives us and the Hope and Joy found within, even if we are broken. The bracelet is a beautifully detailed representation of the actual sand dollar we now keep at our bedside. Thank you!
Handmade by artisans in Bali using sustainable materials
Bone: Balinese communities live very close to nature and make effort not to let anything go to waste- so these materials are collected and brought to villages who specialize in using them to create art, tools, and jewelry as they have for generations.
Wood: Our wood beads are made from locally sourced species including Kempas, Merbau, Jackfruit, Guava, and Crocodile woods.
Horn: Our horn beads are made using reclaimed domestic water buffalo horn. In Indonesia, water buffalo, or “banteng”, live on small family farms where they are highly valued and cared for and families rely on them to plow rice terraces and fertilize crops.
