Memento Monday: Copper Bracelet from Colorado

A souvenir from a place I visited.

The bookstore in Bent’s Old Fort, a National Historic Site that features a reconstructed 1840s adobe fur trading post on the mountain branch of the Santa Fe Trail where traders, trappers, travelers, and the Cheyenne and Arapaho tribes came together in peaceful terms for trade, in Colorado has a collection of products by Native American Indians that interested me. Among them is a copper cuff bracelet that I simply had to buy.

I felt good getting a piece of jewelry to remind me of Bent’s Old Fort and at the same time supported locals’ livelihood.
