Ayana Glaze Jewelry
The mesmerizing Unity Wave Bracelet symbolizes a strong unbreakable bond with its interlocking waves. Each wave is shaped by hand then hammered for texture before being hand-polished to a brilliant sheen. It’s a perfect gift for a bride on her wedding day, as a sister-to-sister gift, or for dear friends, as its design is representative of a strong and sacred bond.
MY DESIGN INSPIRATION
My design inspiration for the Unity Wave Bracelet came from the old negro spiritual, Wade in the Water, once used as code for runaway slaves. The song lyrics told runaways to get in the water to hide their scent from the slave hunters' dogs. The Unity Wave Bracelet is inspired by the beauty in the strength of their courage to unite in their quest for freedom.
As I created this piece, I imagined their interlocking arms as they supported each other, keeping each other from falling, encouraging each other to press onward to freedom.
Each wave in the Unity Wave Bracelet is shaped by hand and textured. The hook closure is handcrafted as well.
