This is a Hand Carved interpretation of the BOSTON Logo.  I will be making a limited amount of custom Bracelets..all made to order.  Please allow 4-6 weeks for delivery since  each Sterling logo bar is individually cast, finished & polished by hand for you.  The black cork band is cut & riveted to size.  Please measure your wrist and  choose your size from the drop down menu above.  A strong magnetic clasp makes putting on and taking off easy.  20% from each of these bracelets will go to the 

The Ric O'Barry's Dolphin Project to support Whale & Dolphin freedom.  


Two things have remained constant in my life since I was a little girl.  First, my love and respect for the animals of our Ocean.  Second, my love of the music from the Band BOSTON.  To partner on a fundraiser that enabled me to carve by hand BOSTON’s logo and raise money to support whale and dolphin freedom is a dream come true.  

      I last saw the Lolita the orca 24 years ago swimming around in her tank at the Miami Seaquarium .  I was 22 years old. Overwhelmed at the time with sadness and disgusted by her conditions, I left her there. I moved on with my young life vowing to support her freedom always.  Since, I have traveled, married and given birth to 3 children.  My bonds with my family & friends  have grown strong with wisdom from living.   Lolita has swam in circles in the hot Miami, Florida Sun.  She has performed show after show after show.   That is it.  Imagine that is all you have done for the past 46 years.   

     Science has proven that Whales and dolphins have complex social family interactions.  Bonds that last lifetimes like humans.  50 years ago the general population did not know all of this.  Maybe captivity in some ways led us to understand cetaceans , that along with the scientists who have been studying them in the wild.  

       We used to smoke on airplanes and play with the mercury in a broken thermometer . Horribly,  there was a time it was legal to buy and sell human beings.  We learn from science and from our mistakes.  The time for holding and breeding whales and dolphins in captivity is over.  Thank you for supporting their freedom.  

Peace
