Set of 2 Ceremonial bracelets from Papua
SYMBOLS OF LOVE AND GOOD FORTUNE
This special set of 2 bracelets comes from Papua and is handmade with clam shells and beads embroidered onto crochet bases made with natural fibers.
Since ancient times bracelets like these have been worn by the people of Papua during ceremonies to enhance the body, believed to be powerful talismans of love, purification and good fortune. The shells are cut round in tribute to the Moon.
Seashells have always played a crucial role in ceremonial traditions in Papua, for their strong mythological importance. In the past, shells also traveled on long pathways through the Asian Pacific, used as exchange items or currency and for creating ties and relationships between people.
The set comes complete with black stands and its story printed out for you inside a beautiful envelope. Each piece is slightly different since they are made by hand with natural materials.
Dimensions: 10 x 10cm wide by 14 and 19cm tall
