Our Sterling Silver Elephant “hair” bracelets draw us into an ancient African story, rich with symbolism that is over 1500 years old.

Originally, how the bracelet was worn told a story: on the right arm, it is said that the wearer had hunted the elephant whose tail hairs formed the bracelet; on the left, it declared the bracelet a meaningful gift to the wearer.

This beautiful 5-strand 2knot, sterling silver elephant "hair" bangle is made from 1mm sterling silver wire that has been artfully formed into a bangle that can be opened and closed simply by moving the strands through the knots. This design is based on an ancient African design.

The specific design of this bracelet is very significant.

Two Knot Bracelet

The first knot represents nature, or the earth; the second represents our ancestors while the strands connect us all together. The bracelet reminds us of the connection to these realms. 

The Structure

It can feel very satisfying to adjust and move the knots along the strands. This motion is also meaningful. It imitates the progression of life, and how, with the aid of natural and spiritual forces, we move forward in continual growth.

Traditionally, elephant hair bracelets, connect the wearer with the spirit of the elephant, and are believed to bring strength, courage, good fortune, as well as protection from harm.

With so much meaning imbued in these special bracelets, the wearer can choose which associations are most meaningful to them.

While of course, the original bracelets were made from real elephant hair, we chose not to use elephant hair as it would be very difficult to verify whether or not the hair was sourced from a poached animal. 

We hope our silver bracelets will remind you of our relationship with the earth, our ancestors and the true majestic nature of the elephant, all done in the spirit of conservation.
