Martha has been wearing these gorgeous gold bracelets for years. They’re more than beautiful — they originate in the temples in Southeast Asia, made from the dust of the 22k gold leaf offered in prayers. The uplifting and healing power of these prayers can be felt in each bracelet.
In the Buddhist temples, locals press small squares of precious gold leaf on Buddha sculptures as offerings, and bits of the gold fall in a fine dust — a powder around the statue’s base. This 22k gold powder is carefully collected by the Monks, blessed with more healing prayers, then brought to Bali to assemble these bangles. Each bracelet is truly spiritually protective, and these days, at Surya, we value every kind of good protection. The bracelets are made of flexible plastic and coated in 22k gold leaf.
