Here is a nautical version of my popular wish bracelet, perfect for your beach parties, seaside weddings, and other special occasions! The wish bracelet is fabled to bring good luck. When you tie it on, make a wish. Keep wearing the bracelet, and when the bracelet wears off, your wish will come true! The origins of the Wish Bracelet have been attributed to ancient cultures across the globe. I first received one on a trip several years ago and my wish came true a few weeks later! I decided to start making them to spread the good luck! If you happen to be "tying the knot," what better way to wish your wedding guests peace, luck, and happiness than by giving them a sailor's knot wish bracelet as a wedding favor! The classic figure-8 knot represents the infinity of your love, and it's great for both men and women to wear. The Wish Bracelet also makes a lovely and meaningful gift for bridesmaids or close members of the wedding party. Imagine everyone tying on the bracelets the day of the wedding and wearing them as a symbol of unity and well wishes! The standard Wish Bracelet is handmade by me from eco-friendly, all-natural hemp cord and mounted on white cardstock printed with my Wish Bracelet verse.

"It well may be, That we will never meet again, In this lifetime. So let me say before we part, So much of me, Is made of what I learned from you. You'll be with me, Like a handprint on my heart. And now whatever way our stories end, I know you have re-written mine, By being my friend... Like a ship blown from its mooring, By a wind off the sea. Like a seed dropped by a skybird, In a distant wood. But because I knew you, I have been changed for good.” ― Stephen Schwartz

Cracking Wing (Sutateish, also Cetaghe), Mandan youth. Cracking Wing arrived in Hampton on Oct. 25, 1881 and DIED there in 1884. When researching this photograph I nearly overlooked the fact that this young man died at Hampton Institute. When I realised that fact I had to get up and walk away from my computer, after 10 minutes of mixed emotions I went back to my computer and turned it off. I was very effected by this revelation. The photo I believe, was taken in 1881. A day later I'm still sad.
