Trade Bracelets, An Excellent Christmas Gift

December 4, 2009

A trade bracelet is a unique gift for someone who appreciates wildlife.  The bracelets we carry were originally created in Seattle using designs from Tlingit carvers.  They were sold to Indians along the Pacific Northwest coast who would then give them away at Potlatches.  Our bracelets are struck from dies made in the early 1900s.  The designs were created by Bill Wilson, a Tlingit from Hoonah, Alaska.


Each piece reveals a detailed image of an animal set at both ends of the bracelet.  They are narrow and will sit nicely on a slim wrist.
