The Freedom Collection was borne during a personally challenging time in the fall/winter 2016, when someone was determined to try and undermine my self-worth with bullying, insults, and hardest of all, the withholding of unconditional love. Bold shapes and mixed metals, using torch and hammer, all with a single silver bead connecting past to present coming full circle. Endings and beginnings. To me this collection represents empowerment, self-worth, courage, integrity, boldness, loss and love. Wearing Freedom reminds me that I am exactly who I am supposed to be. Putting them on is like putting on an ancient talisman or amulet. They remind me that I am lovable, I am enough. You are, too. Be bold, be free.
