Jewelry designer Ana Sheldon speaks the language of beads. She knows how to assemble their shapes, sizes and the raw materials from which they are made to create poetic phrases that are rich with meaning. In these silver bracelets, she creates a central medallion where she lines her beads up in a row, drawing upon their symbolic meanings and the healing properties attributed to them in alternative healing practices, to evoke aspects of creativity, strength or blessings. They're a beautiful way to remind yourself to refocus on the positive throughout your day, or to express thanks to someone else who exemplifies those virtues. Handmade in USA, Italy and Russia, using beads sourced from all over the world.
