May Your Hearts Be Taken With Them
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.”
