Capim dourado, or “golden grass” in English, is virtually synonymous with Brazil handicrafts. This durable plant grows only in the Jalpão region of the state of Tocantins in northeastern Brazil. The tradition of making jewelry, purses, and handicrafts from capim dourado was passed on from the indigenous population there to the immigrant settlers and now the making and selling of these handicrafts with the sustainably-harvested capim dourado from that region is a key economic activity in that part of Brazil.
In terms of sizing, I cannot, with my larger German frame, get this bangle on (I have yet to meet a bangle I can coax over my hands). These seem to be similarly sized to other bangles you would buy in the U.S.
Bracelet dimension: 3″
Bracelet weight: less than one quarter (0.25) ounce
P.S. These are easy to come by in larger quantities (since most people stack them). If you need more than is currently available, drop me a note and I can readily get just about any quantity.
