Mary twisted the bracelet round and round on her wrist. I recognized the bracelet, it was one of Kathleen Nohe’s.
“I wanted to tell you,” she said, “I haven’t taken a vacation in many years. It seemed like there was always something more important to do and I found it harder and harder to leave home and the dogs.”
“But, when the idea of a vacation came up again this year, I looked at the bracelet I got at your Open House. It reminded me of your trip to India. I thought, if Maria can go to India, surely I can go on vacation.” “And I did,” she said, “it was one of the best things I’ve done in a long time.”
The bracelet reminded Mary of my trip because Kathleen donated them to me to sell at the Open House last October. She helped me raise about $300 for my trip to India.
I found each of Kathleen’s bracelets a world of their own and I asked if she would make more for the June Open House.
A couple of weeks ago I got a bag in the mail with 20 of Kathleen’s beautiful bracelets. Looking at each one is like traveling down a different path of polished stones and beads. Many of them have Turtles, Buddha heads, Hamsa hands, spirals, stars and Day of the Dead skulls. (I’m pretty partial to the skulls myself).
You can see more of Kathleen’s work and read about her process here, on her website Wearable Earth Jewelry.
Here’s a few more of the bracelets I’ll be selling a the Bedlam Farm Open House in just a few weeks….

I really love the skull bracelet, could you let me know how much it Is? We can’t make it to the open house, we have tickets to see Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds in Boston. Normally I get my husband a skull for his birthday, this year it was tickets to the show. ☺
Have a great time at the concert! and happy birthday to your husband. I’ll email you.
Hi Maria- I feel honored to be the subject (in part) of this blog on Kathleen’s bracelets. I call mine my “Traveling Mercies” bracelet. I like the bracelets with turtles and skulls. Both have good symbolism. It was fun to see you at the Train Station today as I dropped off my Robin and you & Jon picked up your little Robin. Mary
