About this bangle:
This wrist band features a humming bird and hibiscus flower with a leaf pattern that repeats around. It is 17mm wide and more oval than round. Bright cuts are made by hand on the pattern.
The diminutive hummingbird is known throughout the Caribbean for its vibrant colors, its hovering abilities, and its industrious nature in helping to pollinate the exotic flora of the islands. Also found in the tropical regions in other parts of the world, its adventurous nature brings it to northern climes in the summer months following migratory routes by instinct. This tiny bird is a world traveler extraordinaire!
Much of the vibrant color of the Caribbean Islands comes from its flora.
The Hibiscus flower, in particular, is found throughout the region in a wide variety of hybrids, ranging from pale yellow and pink hues to rich deep reds and golds. An edible flower, it is rich in nutrients, especially vitamin C. Used in salads, or as a wonderful garnish, it also has healing properties when made into a tea.
About West Indian Bangles:
West Indian Bangles are a tradition of the Caribbean Islands. They were originally created through the unison of East Indian and African designs. These West Indian Bangles are typically worn in pairs but I price and sell them individually so you can choose how many you want to buy. These bangles are unisex such that both men and women wear thick bangles and thin bangles although men tend to prefer the thicker ones. They are often given to children to remind them of their heritage.
