In the Hawaiian language, 'Moku' has several different meanings including 'broken,' 'pieces' and 'island.' This definition suggests that 'broken' things can still hold value, beauty and importance.
When I find interesting fragments of broken shell, I always wonder where the other pieces are and how long they've been separated. When I collect and admire these small treasures, I can't help but think about PEOPLE...how we all begin as a part of something else. We move, we marry, we separate, we become our own 'island,' from which other pieces may eventually break away. Our edges, our insides, our unique shape tell our story. Beautiful is not always whole or perfect...beautiful can also be "broken."
This finished bracelet consists of 11 colorful, surf tumbled spike pieces arranged in a ombre pattern. One cowrie lip and small sliding pearl create the semi-adjustable toggle closure. To set the size, slide the pearl to overlap more or less of the braided portion of the cord. Recenter the cowrie lip at the middle of the overlap. Voila! You have a perfect fit that doesn't need to be readjusted with each wear!
The spiral macrame bracelet is made with sand color cord. It measures 6 inches at its smallest adjustment and 6.75 inches at its largest.
This one of a kind pieces is special, unique, beautiful, and JOYFUL and there is no piece more perfect for the everyday mermaid.
