The rise of Catholicism in the Philippines was a product of Spanish colonial rule that began in the early 1500's. Its influence on Philippine daily life was so deep-seated that even jewelry began to reflect religious beliefs. Today, the country is the 3rd most Catholic nation in the world, and Catholicism continues to be the cornerstone of Filipino identity for millions in the country.
A functional one-decade rosary composed of intricately detailed tambourine beads, our Amami Tambourine Rosary Bracelets are entirely made by hand, with each bead adorned with intricate details and so meticulously crafted by Filipino artisans that it takes at least a WEEK to complete just one bracelet.

Our Amami Tambourine Rosary Bracelets are special to us as they were one of the first designs we worked on back in 2017, and have since been popular for those who wish to wear their faith around their wrist, or to give as gifts to loved ones on special occasions such as weddings, birthdays or baptisms.
