It’s no wonder you always wished you were a mermaid: You’ve got the same untamed spirit, unattainable beauty and unsolved mystery as the wild creatures who’ve inspired countless legends and adventures at sea.
In a village at the edge of a jungle in Bali, each bracelet is hand carved from natural water buffalo bone and woven into an adjustable nylon thread band. Maximum length: 8 inches for tassel style and 7.5 inches for button style.
Over time, each pendant will naturally pick up oils from your skin and change to a more organic hue. Avoid contact with all oils including lotions, perfumes, sunscreen, and tanning oil as this will change the color of the pendant.
We are committed to making our products from natural materials that are ethically sourced.
Wanderer Bracelets are a refreshing, burden-free alternative to jewelry made from precious stones, metals or ivory.
Mining precious stones, gold or silver creates toxic runoff and often dangerous working conditions in mines and foundries, while the illegal ivory trade murders countless wild elephants for their tusks. By contrast, water buffalo bone is a beautiful and durable organic material that finds new life as jewelry instead of going to waste.
Domestic water buffalo are never killed for their bone. Most live their lives on small family farms where they are highly valued and cared for. Families rely on these venerable animals to plow rice terraces and fertilize crops.
With five million domestic water buffalo throughout the islands of Indonesia, their bone and horn is in abundant supply, and the villagers have used these materials for generations to create art, tools and adornments. Since they work in open-air jungle huts, there is very little industrial footprint.
Every Wanderer Bracelet helps preserve a unique cultural and artistic legacy for the next generation.
