What good shall I do this day? Cuff Bracelet
Benjamin Franklin began each day by asking himself, in the pages of his journal, "What good shall I do this day?” and returned, at the end of the day, to ask himself the “evening question”: “What good have I done to- day?” This classic sterling silver cuff invites the wearer to contemplate the good that can be done in our everyday lives, and to think about life in the way that Franklin thought about his.
This is how the words are situated on the four sides of the cuff: the first part of the quote (What good shall I do this day?) is on one side; and the second part of the quote (What good have I done to-day?) is on the opposite side. The top of the bracelet is unstamped. “Benjamin Franklin" is stamped on the inside.
This thin but sturdy cuff is 1/8" wide and will fit a wrist that is 6 1/2"–7" around.
Every bracelet is individually made by a local New York area artist. Each letter is stamped, then the silver is oxidized, sanded, and polished for a minimal yet handmade look.
Franklin was a moral pragmatist who, instead of embracing a formal religion, came up with a list of 13 virtues that he felt embodied the essence of a moral life. His notebook was the record of his attempts to incorporate these virtues into his daily life.
