This design features an Eye of Shiva heart paired with pure copper that has been hand aged to a gorgeous patina. This is a very comfortable design that layers easily with other bracelets and necklaces. The dark brown leather wears very well over time and will soften and darken slightly as you wear it. The leather can be switched to black leather if you prefer. Please write a note at checkout or respond ASAP to your order confirmation email with your preference. If no leather color is specified it will be sent with brown.
PLEASE SEE IMPORTANT MEASUREMENT INSTRUCTIONS BELOW!!
Eye of Shiva, also known as Pacific Cat's Eye, is a shell and found in shallow areas of the warm waters of the Pacific Ocean. It is the protective door found at the opening of the Turban Snail shell and is shed naturally as the shell grows. This is a very comfortable design that layers easily with other bracelets and necklaces. The dark brown leather wears very well over time and will soften and darken slightly as you wear it.
Metaphysically, Eye of Shiva Shell is associated with the third eye. It is believed to enhance psychic abilities and has been used for years to ward off bad dreams. Emotionally, it is an uplifting mineral that can help to awaken a sense of adventure and change. It is a powerful tool in bringing joy and spontaneity back to one's spirit be helping to eliminate fear.
I choose the minerals I work with based on, not just their beauty, but also the energy that I feel from them. I am often drawn to imperfect specimens and I love how the electroforming process takes these imperfections and turns them into something beautiful. I see it as metaphor for life...and they remind me to choose to see the beauty in everything.
IMPORTANT MEASUREMENT INSTRUCTIONS:
This design is made to fit an average wrist size of 6.5-7" and a neck that is approximately 14". Please specify your wrist and neck measurements in a note at checkout when you order so that I can make adjustments if necessary. It should fit tightly at first since as the leather breaks in it will soften and stretch a bit. To be worn as both a bracelet and choker, the ratio of your wrist to neck measurement should be roughly 1 to 2. In other words, if you multiply your wrist measurement by two it should be close to your neck measurement. If the ratio is much different from 1 to 2 you will need to decide if you'd like to wear this as a bracelet or a choker and and I will adjust it to that measurement. I know this may be a bit confusing so please feel free to email me or message me on Facebook or Instagram with questions.
