Made during the [Breaking], it is a ''%%ot [ter'angreal|Angreal]%%'', a male version of the %%ot [a'dam|ADam]%%, that allows a woman or two women to control a man who can [channel|True Source]. The sad bracelets are dangerous to use. They do not prevent the man from going mad and eventually he will be able to control the woman as well as she controlling him. Two women reduce this back seepage, but control lessens as well. The sad bracelets are made of a material like [cuendillar|Cuendillar] and are nearly impossible to destroy.
