Tied around the wrist of a mourner, or anyone to whom you wish to show compassion, this string bracelet featuring a hand-carved fetish is a beautiful reminder of love and support.
The giving and wearing of bracelets made from simple materials to express friendship has a long history. The recipient of a “friendship bracelet” will often wear it until the threads wear out and it falls off naturally, with many traditions including the belief that a wish or prayer will be granted at that time. The bracelet in this way becomes a symbol of that wish, prayer or sentiment.
Three-Fourths of an Ounce has conceived of the new practice of giving a Compassion Bracelet to a friend or family member who is grieving. Given as a symbol of remembrance of the deceased, the bracelet also serves as a reminder of the support of friends who surround the mourner. The wearing out of the bracelet over the course of several months will correspond in many cases to the lessening of the most intense grief and the charm which remains will serve as a lasting reminder of the love of those still living.
The acorn is a Victorian symbol of strength, a Nordic and Celtic symbol of immortality and is universally associated with the Tree of Life and limitless potential and strength.
The compassion bracelet also makes a meaningful gift for anyone going through a difficult time. With its simple styling, it will be a welcome reminder of your friendship and comfort.
Crafted from pure cotton string and a hand-carved and sustainably sourced horn or bone acorn, this bracelet is a beautiful reminder of your compassionate support of a friend.
