Call it a clan...

This past week has been a tough one for my family. There have been a lot of tears and prayers...and some long overdue family time. Funny how tough times bring everyone together. For the first time in years, I was able to spend time with all the cousins I grew up with. While the circumstances were not ideal, the fact that we were all together after 10 years was a huge comfort. No matter how much time or distance may separate us, we will always be family.

I wanted to make my cousins something special to commemorate all of us being together again. This is the result. While the bracelets are simple, they have a lot of meaning. Each one has a sterling silver charm with the word "Family" engraved on it. For the beads, I chose Black Lava (which represents Stability) and Black Jade (which represents Protection). I gave my aunt, who helped bring us all together, a bracelet with Amber beads (which presents Healing) I am hoping the next time we are all together we can take a similar picture with all of us wearing our bracelets.

 
Call it a clan, call it a network, call it a tribe, call it a family. Whatever you call it, whoever you are, you need one.
