On Inauguration Day, I woke up feeling....energized. I put on my robe and my string of pearls, and shuffled to the kitchen for coffee, preparing for the ceremony to come. I felt connected to so many of you. I had received notes and messages from several who had commissioned or bought dissent collars, saying you were wearing them that day. We were connected by so many threads: rejoicing in the strength of women, a compassionate new President Joe Biden, and Kamala Harris, a Woman of Color, taking her place as Vice President of the United States of America...the Dark Ages of the past four years coming to a close.
A friend celebrating her birthday on Jan 20th decided to buy the necklace, while saying she had an idea for birthday earrings. She sent me a drawing and we talked on the phone, caught up on life, discussed these earrings and how much hope and love we have for America. The earrings commemorate the date, a palindrome, and based on Leonard Cohen's 'Anthem'... I feel honored to once again be a catalyst for your creativity. (And I love these earrings so much, I am making myself a pair!) xoxox
