Before they were so unceremoniously reduced to nuggets and wings, the chicken was considered a messenger of the gods, a link between Them and Us. The cock crows at dawn, that liminal hour when we come into consciousness again and was therefore seen as having knowledge of worlds unseen. The chicken’s crow signifies a clean start, a good morning call from heaven, and a way to dispel the dark, the day before, whatever haunts us. Wearing this charm can provide protection from the impinging past. The humble chicken is not a coward, but in fact absorbs and bears all fears. Consider that act of generosity the next time you casually snack on its parts dipped in honey mustard.
Thick Cuts Chicken Bracelet
Each Thick Cut bracelet starts with a rich leather strap, meticulously stitched along both edges. The black and brown leathers are bridle, while the natural is a skirting leather, also used for saddles. Produced from American bulls, the leather is finished in a traditional manner to create shine, and, with time, becomes supple and ages beautifully. The result is buttery and tender, like steak sliced against the grain.
