It is so hard to tell you which are my fave pieces as I love so many not only for how they look but definitely for the meaning behind each.
But, I do want to share a story with you..
When I was first brought to Jen’s showroom by Dene B., I walked in and Jen immediately hugged me. I could feel her positive energy flow thru me and I just knew I wanted to be a part of whatever she was creating. I immediately gravitated toward a butterfly necklace(THRIVE) and I hate birds and anything to do with feathers(I know: weird) but for some reason,I kept going back to this piece. I tried it on and it fit my neck around my scar perfectly. I remember chatting with Jen and for some reason,I think it was because Abba music started playing , while I was walking around with another piece on (which was not my style:…a little long and a little glittery ball at the end…)..
Anyway: I started talking to Jen about my last trip to Greece and how we were in this tiny village where they filmed part of Mamma Mia and how special it was for my family, being the only Americans there and how welcoming and how I felt at home there(I am Greek so it felt like I just made it back to my homeland)…Jen looked at me and said: “You do know you’ve been walking around with the Dancing Queen Necklace on ???” It was surreal..what are the odds that I am talking about my special place in Greece while listening to Abba and I gravitated towards a necklace that usually is not my style?
Of course, I purchased both including Thrive (love the mantra) and as I was just finishing treatment for my Cancer, Thrive was such a great mantra to have and to have around my neck where one of my huge scars is…(Jen said I should not hide my scar but be proud of it!).. About a month later, someone in my support group said to me: I don’t want to SURVIVE; I want to THRIVE!!!! Again, that word.. Later on, I realized that Thyroid Cancer’s symbol is the Butterfly. Thyroid Cancer was one of the health issues I had! and I had no idea( I have now learned the thyroid’s shape looks like a butterfly),
What are the odds? The Universe works in mysterious ways. I now know I was meant not to only meet Jen but to wear her inspirational jewelry close to my heart and my scar to remind myself that I am a warrior!
