This amazing bracelet was created by artist Sharon Sulivan. "As I was working, I lined up a group of scattered pearls on my desk. For some reason, I lined them up smallest to biggest, and they reminded me of a path. At that point, I was overwhelmed with the thought of all the progress and steps of my brother's recovery from a dirt bike accident. A few tears later, I made a bracelet that symbolizes the road to recovery. Each bracelet is handmade and individual, and acts as a comforting reminder that recovery and renewal from anything is one step at a time. You begin with the white pearl, which symbolizes the whole and healthy person. Next is the clasp, the point at which something breaks. It can be an accident, a health issue, a loss or an emotional crisis. From the clasp on the other side of the bracelet there is a progression of freshwater pearls growing in size and changing in color. Each pearl along the way represents a stepping-stone to recovery. The different colors represent the changing emotions, and new tasks accomplished in the process. The pearls continue to get bigger as healing takes place, ultimately reaching the bright white pearl where it started, signifying the return to full health. It is in honor of my brother and his continuous recovery from his accident in January 2003. Each bracelet comes with an attached tag, that tells this story. One third of the proceeds are donated to the Rehab Unit of Barrow Neurological Institute in Phoenix, Arizona, where my brother was treated." One size fits most. Handcrafted in the USA.
