The Courage Silk Wrap.
We created this silk as a tribute to Gord Downie; an iconic Canadian singer-songwriter, musician, writer and activist. We chose this word to describe his incredible impact on shaping Canadian music culture, bringing Canadians closer together and his battle with cancer.
$10 from the sale of each COURAGE Silk Wrap will be donated to the Sunnybrook Hospital Gord Downie Fund for Brain Cancer Research.
This design is made in 100% silk ribbon hand dyed in black, white and grey with a soft wrinkled texture. We've added a Canadian made sterling silver charm hand stamped with the word COURAGE. Wrap it around your wrist or ankle and tie it in a knot or bow and let it inspire you to live each day with courage.
If your memory of Gord comes in the form of another word, we can certainly stamp an alternative word instead and make the donation to the Sunnybrook Hospital fund in his name. You can choose a Round charm as shown (max. 10 characters), Heart charm +$24 (max. 5 characters) or Small Leaf charm +$24 (max. 7 characters). See Stamping Information tab to learn more.
We will knot the silk on each side of the silver charm to keep it in place. For additional shine, add sterling silver spacers (+$10/pair) to surround your stamped charm instead of knots. Available in 3 shapes: Donut, round or rectangular. Remove the knots or spacers if you'd like to move your stamped charm to another silk ($+28) or silver chain.
Silk ribbons can withstand getting wet during hand washing but we don't recommend wearing in the shower, a chlorinated swimming pool or hot tub.
Elements: Sterling silver & 100% silk.
Silk ribbons are 33.5" long and can be wrapped around the wrist or ankle 3, 4 or 5 times depending on:
1) the size of your wrist/ankle (it will fit any size wrist/ankle; you just keep wrapping it).
2) whether the charm is surrounded by knots (which take up length) or sterling silver spacers. The knots will reduce the length. The spacers will not.
The Round charm has room for 10 hand stamped characters. Stamping of the word COURAGE will be asymmetrical on the charm as shown. If you choose an alternate word with 10 characters it will fill the charm.
The Heart charm has room for 5 hand stamped characters. Stamping will be centered in the middle of the heart. The first letter of the name or both initials will be in a larger font.
The Leaf charm has room for 7 hand stamped characters. Stamping will be centered top to bottom and the first letter will be in a larger font.
Stamping is included.
We regret that we cannot hand stamp the back of the charm; when we hand stamp the front it leaves a slight impression on the back.
