Corn comes from the Americas, where it was deified and revered as the basis for life. Without one reliable grain to sustain a people there could be no civilization, no time for anything other than subsistence. Early Mesoamericans personified corn a gracious, glorious woman; she is the giver and the gift. And in fact the ancient Mayans believed that human beings were created from corn. When we wear the corn charm we are reminded to be filled with gratitude for our daily food, for the fertile earth, for this good life. Corn can be ground into tortillas, popped as a communal matinee snack, and distilled into potent liquor. For these delicious things we are eternally grateful.
Thick Cuts Corn 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.
