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 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 with shark leather or lauhala cord. These days, Thom's intricately engraved designs and inlays can express who you are in precious metal.
