Our ME5 range is one of our most popular, and for a good reason, this item is available in your choice of length, as well as your choice of an 8, 12, 0r 16mm Sterling Silver clasp. These bracelets are known for their durability and it is not uncommon for clients of more than 10 years to still have their very first ME5 still on their arm.

Here is one of not only my favorite items to make, but my personal choice when it comes to wearing something everyday. The ME5 is just the right balance of striking and subtle to be both a feature but not a distraction. The ME5 is about as durable as an Elephant, it is not uncommon for customers to keep these bracelets for over a decade. To care for your elephant hair, all you need to do is allow some olive oil to soak into a cloth and lightly rub the hairs in order to keep them from becoming brittle. It is perfectly safe to swim or shower with these items, however we just do not recommend using conditioners or shampoo to scrub them as this will damage your item.

River Jewelwing

A male River Jewelwing (Calopteryx aequabilis) attacked a female Ebony Jewelwing (Calopteryx maculata) that was laying her eggs on the plants of a small stream. With more than a dozen Ebony Jewelwings present in this short stretch of water, they had presumed to have their way. However, this lone River Jewelwing living here was not going to surrender the territory he had claimed. I watched as he knocked the female off balance, which resulted in her move to a spot further upstream.

Ironweed

The native perennial Ironweed is in bloom and attracting butterflies like this Viceroy. The large amounts of nectar produced by the brightly-colored flowers provide a ready energy source that is easily accessed by butterflies.
