In a labor of love, Jes MaHarry hand carves the mold for each chunky bead in this sterling and gold charm bead bracelet, inscribing meaningful symbols and messages. As she assembles the strand, she mingles highlights of 14kt rose and yellow gold beads in with sterling silver. For good measure, a single gold star hangs near the lobster clasp. Made in USA. Adjustable 7" to 8"L.
The sterling silver ingots that artist Jock Favour melted to make this handmade sterling cuff bracelet lend it a mellow patina. Crafted with a traditional design, it speaks to fidelity and friendship. Exclusive. USA. 2-1/4" dia.
Similar to Robert Redford’s vision of Sundance, I have always had long-held interest in the myth and magic of the landscape. This passion is witnessed in each painting, sculpture and jewelry design I create. A strong background in anthropology allows me to bring this concept into the creative expression of my design process. Good primitive art has a vitality and human quality that instill a sense of awe and wonder. If my work can catch a note of ancient magic, I have succeeded. —Jock Favour

I started working with Sundance behind the scenes, braiding leather for Charlie Favour. Without this experience, I would have never incorporated braiding into my silversmith craft. This experience, tied to Sundance, began my career. As an artist, I strive to be true to who I am through the art I make. I appreciate simplicity, not trends. Sundance provides me the support to stay true to my craft. I see how jewelry has changed over the years, but I will always value hand worked, hand crafted, artisan jewelry. I am not a reproduction artist. I work in the old craftsmanship style, as I value the simplicity of the old methods. Sundance represents this mindset, and I respect their quality craftsmanship and the way product is presented in their catalogs. The Sundance customer appreciates the beauty and imperfection of hand-made jewelry. United, we create an experience that is both unique and timeless. —Dennis Hogan

Our artisan bracelets are truly special pieces of jewelry, because our community of craftspeople brings together an extraordinary array of styles and skills. Every design is developed by one of these creative minds, such as Chan Luu or Jes MaHarry, making each unique. Our artisans find inspiration for their handmade bracelets everywhere, from the awesome elements that drive the natural world, to the essential sentiments and relationships that drive our inner worlds. They create pieces to capture experiences in the moment, and to embody memories that shimmer on the mind’s horizon. The next step, after a unique bracelet’s design is conceived, is to find the materials that will bring it to life, and then to combine those materials with care. Our craftspeople know the personalities of different gemstones and precious metals, of leather and cord—they understand their greatest strengths, their moods, and the way that their temperaments change in the company of other materials. Just as a certain seating arrangement and soundtrack at an event might foment a rollicking party, while another would lead to a quiet evening of thoughtful conversation, so an artisan’s choice of, say, metal or leather for a particular handcrafted bracelet can set the tone, and the configuration of beads and gems decides the tenor of their dialogue, whether it is quiet or bold, polite or exuberant. This is the process that brings us Chan Luu bracelets, which possess a hushed grace in one design, and vivacious charm in the next. This is how Jes MaHarry bracelets are created, scintillating and serene by turns. This is the process that allows Sundance to offer an unparalleled collection, so you can find an artisan bracelet that is just right for you.
