His father learned from his relatives and started making on his own crafts as a way to supplement the meager earnings of the families' small piece of land. Deepak saw his father work and learned by practicing everyday. Today he can make any jewelry item from necklaces, to belts, to rings and beyond. He says it takes two days for him to make one brass bracelet. Deepak has three brothers and a sister. His younger brother and father are with him in the handicraft work. He is currently looking for a place where he could set up his own permanent shop.

great little trinket that works its' Magic with the Hippie crownd on Venice Beach. The Chics dig it and think you're so "Spiritual"...great gift idea for "Burning Man" type of people...just be aware...Copper reacts with sweat...if you are acidic, expect the copper to start leaving a green colour on your wrist. On the bright side if you're Goth and like cutting your wrists, the green will hide the scars...Enjoy!Read More

This bracelet is beautiful as well as BEAUTIFULLY crafted. It is one of the best purchases I have made via OverStock. Do not hesitate; it is worth much, much more than the price. ps: The cuff is much larger than I expected but then I have a 5 1/2 inch wrist. I manipulated it to the point that the two ends are almost touching with NO damage to the brass detailing. That is how well made this bracelet is!Read More
