This reconceptualization of the Women's Wealth component as a screw-in snap closure means you can now expand the ways you incorporate this stunning element into your garment and accessory styling repertoire.

The closure opens and closes with snaps on both sides of the Women's Wealth element. 

The ornament used in this closure and the Women's Wealth Shawl Cuff is inspired by women's wealth ornaments of the Miao, a minority ethnic group in China, for whom silver jewelry signals beauty, fertility, status and, wealth.  A woman's jewellery is her personal property and accompanies her for her entire life, from childhood through marriage, before being passed on to her daughters. This particular design is based on back ornaments that women use to hold the hand woven and embroidered textiles that make up their ceremonial tunics and represent the infinite cycle of life.
