THE ISLAND HOOK BRACELET ORIGINAL LEGEND

 by Shannon Sterling

“Once upon a time in St. Croix, there lived a beautiful maiden who was head-over-heels in love with her betrothed, a handsome seafaring man. This being in the time before airports, resorts and jewelry stores, wedding rings were as scarce on the islands as credit cards. Yet, she desired to present her beloved with a wedding gift that would be a token of their pledged devotion.

     Inspiration struck and she raided his tackle box for fishing hooks and heavy leader. The hooks she snipped and smoothed. The wire she wrapped and braided, and the original pair of Island Hook Bracelets were created.

     On their wedding day, they each clasped a bracelet around the wrist of their chosen, the open hook toward their hearts. The tradition born that moment survives yet today.

     If the open hook is worn facing the heart, you have the good fortune to have found your sweetie. Married or not, you are happily hooked. If worn reversed, good fortune will smile upon your every cast. One of these days, you are sure to reel in your heart’s desire.”

A copy of this legend is included with each bracelet purchased.

.

We have 9 basic sizes of the Island Hook Bracelet, each available with your choice of either the Sterling Silver or Gold Tone Brass wire wrap. To choose the correct size, take a snug measurement of the wrist around the bone and add another 1/4". If you do not find your size here or are in doubt, please contact us with the actual wrist measurement and we will select an individual custom fit for you.

FOR A FREE CUSTOM FIT:
After ordering your correct size, cut a strip of paper or string [anything will do] and use it to take a snug measurement of the wrist around the bone. Mark the strip and lay it flat against a ruler to find your exact measurement. Please inform us of that exact measurement without the added 1/4" and we can choose a custom fit bracelet for you within the size you ordered. You can e mail the exact measurement or use the “Note Box” on your checkout page.
