Tara's Diary Origin Green Enamel Hope Bead - TD611
In days gone by, when a sailor was missing his love while at sea, he would take two ropes, and would tie them together with overhand knots. He would leave it loose however, and send it home to his true love. If she felt the same about him, she would tighten the knot into an unbreakable bond, and keep it in anticipation of his return. The Hope charm bead incorporates two hearts and an anchor made up of a fisherman's rope as a fisherman's knot is also known for its special way that it grows stronger the more stress that is placed on it, making it a popular sign for overcoming adversity.
