You Are So Brave & Quiet, I Forget You Are Suffering

Dearest Andrew,

Nine years ago you saved my life. Unfortunately it also happens to be last time I saw you, too. To top it all off, until a year or so ago I couldn’t remember much of our seven years spent together, (or unfortunately the seven years that followed 🍷😵💊). But it’s all good – I remember now and I survived it. I’ve survived a lot, actually. And you know how? Every time it would become almost too much I would think of the strongest person I know – that’s you. I would think of what you had to endure and I endure. I think that’s what I want you to know most….that your life meant more than you ever thought possible and your fight saves me everyday – which is ironic because towards the end you mostly believed that you were so much less important and that you were weak. When you died, I was relieved for you because you couldn’t catch a break here on earth and I quickly learned to cling to every single moment before it ever becomes a memory. In other words, I understand why you had to go and I am so so happy you were here. I’ll keep trying to make you proud.

Love you with all my heart,

Melissa

I've always had an appreciation for accessories and in 2014, while living in New York City and having recently left my full-time job to start the what would become 2 year process of detox and recovery from opiate addiction, the urge to 'impulse-shop' was stronger than ever. So, one morning instead of heading to Madison Ave, I hopped the F-Train to Chinatown, bought some beads and pliers and by dissecting my designer bling, I taught myself to manufacture my own material. It just so happens that, unbeknownst to me at the time, beading became a coping mechanism - you know what they say about 'idle hands' after all. Now, having returned home to the peace & comfort of Pennsylvania, I design my pieces with the purpose of others in mind - to inspire luck, to heal and to prosper - but above all, I create to continue to survive, eventually thrive & to enjoy the beauty of being alive.
