Lotus Flower Charm Bracelet with African Turquoise Gemstones

$27.00

Inspired by the works of ancient jewelers and materials found in nature, VT has created a khaki green with black accents, African Turquoise gemstone and Czech glass double-strand bracelet.  The Kuchi Lotus flower marks this piece as unique and boho.  The flower “charm” was up-cycled from a tribal “bellydance” belt and is between 50 to 100 years old.  A vintage Afghani coin and tiny bell charm have been added for luck and to ward off unruly spirits.  

  • About Ancient and Tribal Jewelry: The wearing of jewelry for adornment and ritual started as far back as 7000 years ago and archeologists have found evidence that people wore bracelets in the Middle East and Asia.  Ancient bracelets were made of grasses, slender tree limbs and shells, then copper and bronze.  The Kuchi are a nomadic tribe which lives to this day in Afghanistan and Pakistan.
  • African Turquoise Properties: African Turquoise is a gemstone that inspires structure and balance, to awaken one to their intended purpose. African Turquoise is believed to help ease mood swings, encourage acceptance and bring on an optimistic attitude.
  • Lotus Flower Properties: The Lotus flower is a symbol of purity, enlightenment, self-regeneration and rebirth. Its characteristics are a perfect analogy for the human condition; even when its roots are in the dirtiest of waters, the Lotus produces the most beautiful flower.
  • Handmade bracelet created with 7mm African Turquoise gemstones, natural Black Lava, green and black Czech Glass and handcrafted Ethiopian silver metal beads.
  • Multi strand boho bracelet with lobster clasp, approximately 7 1/4 inches round.
