Nautical Rope Makes the Perfect Summer Accessory June 05, 2015 08:00

First of all, if you haven't checked out Shana Aldrich's Instagram, do it now. She has some killer style. She is also the founder and maker behind The ROPES, a made-in-Maine, nautical, bracelet company.

Shana's bracelets are handmade from authentic marine ropes, dock line and hardware. She pairs stripes, bright colors, and statement-making gold hardware. 

Shana is a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design and a former apparel designer. She is originally from Maine and was drawn back to her home state several years ago and inspired to create The ROPES.

She loves jewelry that tells a story and her bracelets are made an homage to the natural beauty of the Maine coast and the communities, traditions, and way of life that define it. Each bracelet has an adorable Maine-shaped gold tag on it and comes in a bright, blue bait bag.

We've got lots of color combos and sizes, making it easy to find the perfect The ROPES bracelet for you.
