Hidden Meaning

Some words of wisdom aren't just meant to be read—they're meant to be carried with you, wrapped around your thoughts to be pondered again and again. Jewelry designer Amanda Landesberg helps you to do just that with her inspiring wrap bracelets. She begins with a timeless inspirational quote from the Dalai Lama: "My religion is kindness." Then, using knotted silk cord and semi-precious tourmaline beads to form visual Morse code, she embeds those words into this extraordinary wrap bracelet.

The message will remain with you throughout the day, its meaning clear and present to you and those with whom you share its meaning. The band wraps around the wrist three times—a number symbolizing perfection in many religious traditions—and has a closure that adjusts to fit most wrists. Each bracelet comes with the quote, its Morse code translation, and information about the stones used. Made in Sarasota, Florida.

Comments about KINDNESS MORSE CODE BRACELET:

I love bracelets and bought this for myself last Christmas (2013) because the message really spoke to me. It arrived on time and in good condition. It is very pretty but somewhat difficult to put on, given that you need to wrap it around your arm a couple of times and then fit a bead through a loop to "clasp" it. It isn't a very reliable way to keep the bracelet on, and would come undone often.

I have pretty small wrists but found that it was a bit awkwardly sized... if I wrapped it three times it barely closed and was very tight, but if I only wrapped it twice it fell off and moved up and down my arm. The fact that there are several different holes to "size" the bracelet when putting it on does not matter because there is not an effective way to clasp it and it's essentially just extra string. Either way I wore it (too loose or too tight), the beads pressed uncomfortably into my skin when I was performing everyday tasks like writing, but this could probably be solved by wearing it on the opposite wrist.

Unfortunately the bracelet broke about a week after I got it. The metal bead on the end, meant to go through the loop in the string, came off. There isn't a way to reattach it. I called and ordered a replacement and received it in a timely manner but the exact same thing happened about a week later - the end bead came off. I loved the bracelet and didn't want to ask for a refund so I tried my hardest to use superglue to put it back together. Almost a year later and I have had no such luck.

I would only give it 1 star but I love the concept of the bracelet and the way it looks, so they get some credit for that. It just needs to be crafted more effectively so there is an actual clasp or way to tie the bracelet without using the beads themselves.

    Comments about KINDNESS MORSE CODE BRACELET:

    I loved the idea and symbolism of this bracelet and ordered three for friends. I had some misgivings, based on mixed reviews but after talking to an Uncommon Goods representative, proceeded. The bracelets are beautiful, although I am not enamored of the "nut" fastener; however, they appear very fragile, especially the loops for closure. I have good dexterity and could not get one fastened by myself, so returned them

            This was given to me as a gift. Then it broke and it was replaced by the person who gave it to me. Then that one broke. I was so embarrassed so I bought myself another one so my gift giver wouldn't know. Now that one broke. So this is my fourth and last. I'm careful, but don't take it on and off because it is a bit of a challenge to get on. Nice bracelet, needs better connecting mechanism.

            I like this maybe people that were it will also be reminded of what it stands for

            I love this! I think that the message would be a great personal reminder. When asked about my lovely beaded bracelet, it would give me the opportunity to pass that message along to someone else.

            I think you have to know the full meaning behind the design to appreciate this item. Otherwise, it looks like just another bead bracelet.

            Very cool bracelet! I'd love to get this as gifts for people and of course, one for myself.

            I wonder if you could get other messages - more personalized?

            It would be neat if each person could have her code their own quote.
