One of my favorite shops on Etsy, Tibi Collection, recently introduced a sterling fox cuff bracelet — which is the cutest thing I’ve seen in a long time and a perfect gift for the foxhunter in your life. Especially if it’s you.
I’m a huge advocate of only wearing jewelry that comes apart while riding — I don’t want my rings or bracelets to cause any problems if they get caught in a horse’s mane, a lead rope or any other of the traps inherent in riding horses. I’ve bought a couple of cuff bracelets from this seller because they meet all my criteria: well made, beautiful, comfortable and safe. The craftsmanship and details on all her jewelry is exceptional, including the details of the fox’s face and the engraving that goes down her back. It’s just as spectacular as the other pieces I’ve bought from her. The bracelet is adjustable to wrist sizes 5 1/2 – 7 1/2.
Jewelry designer Summer Kalsang Wangmo works in 999 fine silver (99% pure silver), which has a cool pale color. Silver this pure is softer than 925 silver (92.5% silver and 7.5% copper), which most of us are used to, but I’ve worn several of her bracelets for months without any issues. Summer includes a cleaning cloth with every piece of jewelry — although 999 silver doesn’t tarnish as easily as 925 — and packs each item in a secure case and a pretty Tibetan pouch. Note: jewelry made from 999 silver is ideal for people who might be allergic to copper or nickel and who develop rashes when wearing 925 silver.
This friendly little fox is going to be riding along with me on many hunts!
