“Mine just came, and I’m gobsmacked by how gorgeous it is!
Even better than you’d think from the pictures.
It’s so light, elegant, and beautifully crafted. Easy clasp, and so well made and well fitting.
I love that it is like Jane Austen’s, but it is simply lovely in its own right.” –Diana Birchall
The story of the Bracelet
Be the first in your neighborhood to own a replica bracelet, modeled after the one in Jane Austen’s House Museum in Chawton that belonged to Jane. JASP is the only place where you can buy these replica bracelets that are far more accurate than any other copies. The newest edition of the bracelets (starting December 2018) is stronger and more durable than the first edition. In addition, the new bracelets have been hand made in the West Indies, by a program that offers fair living wages for women. (More details are included with the bracelets, including the name of the woman who made yours.) It is likely that Jane’s brothers Francis and Charles may have found similar bead workers when they visited the West Indies. While the exact origin of the bracelet is unknown, it is possible that Jane’s brother Francis may have given her the bracelet after his visit to the West Indies in 1805.
Please order a bracelet in plenty of time for the holiday season, and support JASP at the same time.
