Inspired by the ruby-red threads that weaved their way through my childhood, wrapped around my wrist by my mum; They were hand-tied talismans. Comfort-thumbed truths - that I carried her energy within me - her courage, her strength, her love.
It was always within reach. Even when she wasn't.
It was only when I came to be without them - without her - did I realise just how significant and symbolic they really were.
And so I reimagined those strands. Bound them tightly, around love-worn silver and gold.
A reminder. That everything I need is within me. And that everything you need is within you.
