@edward Thanks for starting this thread! (y) Very nice. Are they made from your Elephant? A sort of trophy that you can wear on your wrist.

Really looking forward to seeing others.

The Elephant hair bracelet started being popular in the early 1970's. I believe that the French jeweler Bry & Co made the first ones as high end jewelry pieces and followed by some of the finest jewelry houses in Europe like Cartier and Van Cleef & Arpels. American jewelry house Tiffany & Co. also made some.

It interesting that they became popular. Then the material changed from elephant hair to plastic, gold, etc

They used to be readily available in curio shops throughout East Africa including the airports. As I recall, prices were well under a dollar each.

Also really like the sole bracelet! These have become very popular amongst Big Game PHs in more recent years. Thanks for sharing @Wheels.

Agree. You see a lot of them around DSC.

The sole bracelet has a poor odor for a few months. Brought them back for my wife and daughter. They weren't impressed. :oops:

I bought some bullets from Rimshot and he is good to trade with!
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!
