One of the perks of making things is being able to make trade for something you don’t have access to. Maybe it’s all that Oregon Trail play time I put in as a kid, but I love trading. Last week, I traded two bracelets (including this carnelian and brass one) for a few awesome stones I’ll to wrap, coyote teeth, a cast iron pair of scissors, and a bar of fancy soap. The pioneer in me is pleased.
If you’d like a similar bracelet but are more interested in trading something more conventional like money, check out Lapidify on Etsy.
