As is the case with most jewelry, bracelets have always been a part of human self expression. Across cultures and through millennia people have used lauhala or coconut cord, leather or metal chain to keep precious objects, literally, near at hand. In the old days, the Indigenous People might have etched designs onto sea shells, coral, boar's tusks or precious wood. These days, with Thom's intricately engraved designs and inlays, you can express yourself in precious metal.
