Made in the early 1970s, the original 'Sun Moon Bracelet' was––like so many of the unique pieces designed by artist JB Blunk––a present for his wife, Christine Nielson, who has worn it nearly every day for the last 40 years. Blunk's bracelet was made of brass fitted with two beads: one carved from a deer antler, the other from ivory. Our reproduction is also fashioned of solid brass, but we’ve sourced sustainable American buffalo horn and cow bone for our beads. We’ve named this style the 'Sun Moon Bracelet' for its planetary feel. Blunk made work that often responded to nature and its organic forms––this bracelet brings a bit of the solar system to your wrist. As with all of our Blunk Estate collaborations, this piece is fabricated in California by jeweler Tess Young to faithfully reproduce a historical design from the JB Blunk archive.

We recommend polishing the bracelet regularly with a bit of polish and an absorbent rag to keep the brass looking rich and golden.
