There are times when life’s greatest joys come from the darkest of places. Times when love prevails, through despair. These are the times worth celebrating, worth honoring. I like to look at the dark spaces in my past as the fuel which created the joy in my present life. I do not carry the dark with me, rather, I use it to remember the light. After all, the bright side only exists in relation to the shadows, right?
Rebecca Lewis fell from three stories and “found herself with a new titanium spine and a new outlook on life. A motto was born: Beauty from Tragedy.” Gramercy Eight is that beauty. A designer by trade, Lewis began crafting jewelry during her recovery as a way to stay creative and focused and engaged. Her line is full of raw, natural elements and metal. She brings a warm and earthy perspective to her work and you can see the healing in each piece she creates. This Secret Message Custom Bangle is the absolute perfect gift for that person in your life that needs a reminder kept close to the skin. Even if that person is you. Gramercy Eight is the beauty, indeed. It should also be noted that today marks the 18 month anniversary of Lewis’ accident. Please join me in celebrating her recovery with beauty and love (and jewelry).
