Wearing copper bracelets for medicinal benefits has a long history, dating back to ancient Egypt. Proposed benefits focus on reducing joint inflammation and easing pain. Although this alternative medicine is based partly on superstition, wearing copper has become a widely popular ritual for athletes. This copper plated design is an ode to athletes everywhere.


The 3 center cubes represent an Olympic podium, the ultimate award for an athlete.


Numbers for the band:

the signature "by miles" 11:11 to represent "new beginnings", w/ a dark & light bead to close.

4 groups of 2 smaller beads= 8 (the number for strength): 4 (trust), 2 (patience)

2 groups of 7 larger beads: 7 (timing)


This design is a part of my metallic line. Why metal? Through time metal changes color, scratches & fades, but in every incarnation lies beauty, like people. 11 beads on each side representing the power number of change and "NEW BEGINNINGS" 11:11. Finished off with a black bead and light colored wood bead to represent light & dark. You can't have one without the other. It holds it all together!
