Obsessing over this design for about a year now.
It is the Buddhist symbol Vitarka-Mudra, a gesture of teaching and meditation. Made by designer Catherine Michiels with love from the west coast.
I adore silk wrap bracelets because you form more of a bond with them than other pieces. Similar to the perfect pair of flats or lush leather bag; you break it in.
Thus the accessory gains more character than others, explaining the kinship.
The piece is now more customized and fit to you, a relationship has formed. It's been through sweaty nights at the club and weathered that ridiculous snow storm the day after Christmas when you were dragging your gifts and luggage down to the E train; not a cab in sight.
It survived and persevered. Just like you.
These gems are the reason we love and hunt for really special and timeless accessories.
Adornments with a little soul is what we all need right now.
