Traditional Tibetan therapeutic bracelets, made of interwoven metals including copper, brass and nickel, are believed to have healing properties that can also balance inner energies. For centuries, these types of bracelets have been worn with the belief that they can help alleviate the symptoms of arthritis, rheumatism, tendonitis, and carpal tunnel syndrome, as well as promote healthy blood flow and circulation.
Each bracelet is uniquely handmade by skilled craftspeople in Nepal according to traditional methods handed down from multiple generations of family artisans. Assorted metal wires are cut to length, braided or twisted together in select patterns and then hammered into ingenious and attractive designs that are fixed onto a copper sleeve. Designs are inspired by elements of traditional Tibetan culture that include precious dZi stones, Buddhist blessing cords and unique Tibetan-style hair braids.
