Red Stripe Adjustable Anchor Wrap Use as a Bracelet, Anklet, or Necklace 028
Red Stripe Handmade Adjustable Anchor Bracelet - Made in the USA
New for 2020, our adjustable anchor wrap bracelets, or wear as an anklet! These are custom made in either 100% stainless steel or solid brass. Perfectly curved so they rest on your wrist to avoid snagging on clothing and providing an understated, elegant look. Wrap around wrist or ankle and slide knot to fit.
Snags, grabs, and scratches...those are complaints we heard about other anchor bracelets, and why we hesitated to make them. So, we carefully designed our anchors with a curve to rest on your wrist and not catch on everything or everyone that dares touch them.
We are live-aboard sailors and everything we make in our shop could be made aboard as we travel. Real sailors making for other sailors, this is your chance to join in the New England tradition as it enters the fourth generation.
Mystic Knotwork's nautical tradition dates back into the early 1900s but traditions change this anchor bracelet represents a tradition started 15 years ago when the preppy movement took a turn. We had been resistant to join this tradition but after 15 years of seeing it slowly lose it's roots in the nautical traditions, we decided to take a step back and visit this design. We redesigned the anchor so that it has a nice bend to it and blends in with your wrist while the same time prevents snagging your clothing or any sheets or gear you are working with on the boat. The design itself can be carved out of a halyard snap shackle so it still holds the tradition of Mystic Knotwork having everything we make able to be made while traveling on the boat itself.
Christa gets credit for inspiring this anchor bracelet (and it's partner whale tail). She is the fourth generation knot tyer in the family. She wanted something a little fancier. Metal and fiber, the anchor bracelet is designed for the nautical environment. We wanted to introduce these online last summer, but they sold so quickly in our public workshop in Downtown Mystic, Connecticut, we couldn't support selling them to you until now.
