Bracelet designer extraordinaire
After seeing the quality of Brigit's work, we invited her to take a look at the Braided Lives website and submit a design for a bracelet that reflected her understanding of what the project is all about. Here is what she said:
"Hi! My name is Brigit O'Rourke from Brigit's Bracelets and I'm super excited to be collaborating with Braided Lives on this project! The exclusive bracelet I created represents our individual stories coming together to become one, bringing unique and colorful aspects of our own lives to a shared narrative. This idea is shown by the fuchsia, violet, and gold strands flowing into the deep purple river through the center of this original woven bracelet.
When creating this design, I pictured the bracelet bringing people together from all different walks of life. Regardless of location, race, gender, or political views, this bracelet is a symbol of the love shared among human beings as our stories intertwine to become one."
Needless to say we think she nailed it! Thank you Brigit for bringing your talent and voice to Braided Lives! To learn more about Brigit and her work visit: https://www.etsy.com/shop/BrigitsBracelets
