This stunning dark gemelina wood bracelet features hand-carved decorative shapes inlaid with real saltwater pearls from the sparkling waters of the Philippine islands. This organic, artisanal design repeats all the way around the bracelet as the rich color of the wood is complemented by the iridescence of the precious inlaid pearls. This style utilizes traditional woodworking techniques and features a symbolic eight-rayed Filipino sun at its center, adding a contemporary spin to the beautiful natural materials and textures gifted from nature.
