Words to Live By cuffs are a tribute to the Celtic reverence for the wise oak. Each is embellished with a raised oak leaf garland and has a tiny acorn at its centre symbolising the wisdom at your own centre. Discreetly inscribed inside the cuff are inspirational words to live by, quotes from icons of more recent times. Wear Wisdom Cuff as a daily 'tune-in' to your personal truths. Wearing of oak leaves was a sign of special status among the ancient Celts. They believed the oak was connected to the gods and a doorway to other realms, and oak was honoured as a source of great wisdom. The Celtic name for oak is 'duir' which also means door - Druids, those most mysterious and powerful Celtic spiritual leaders, are thought by some to be named for the duir because oak plays such an important role in their practice as a door to other realms.

Hand beaten silver cuff with raised oak leaf garland. Quote inscribed on the inner surface. Sterling Silver - post consumer recycled Size 10mm wide, adjustable to wrist size
Made by hand by craftsmen and craftswomen at family owned workshops in Thailand. We know the team well and love to find an excuse to visit. Mosami uses 'second life' sterling silver - this means it's been used for other things in the past (maybe jewellery, cutlery or an industrial use) and then re-refined to produce perfect sterling silver. We do this because the environmental and human impact of silver mines is truly terrible. By re-cycling silver we are at least minimising this damage. However this is a temporary fix - what we campaign for is mining that is respectful for the environment and miners.
