Recovery Bracelet

I especially like to make jewelry that is meaningful.

Sure it is lovely to wear a bracelet with beautiful stones and shimmering sterling silver but when that bracelet has meaning behind its design and the beads then it is all the more special.

Each recovery bracelet has 12 beads – one stone to represent and be a reminder of each step – 12 steps toward spiritual recovery – 12 beads to celebrate the journey.

Each bracelet may vary in size and shape of beads

Around the world, people view the butterfly as representing spiritual growth.

Butterflies are deep and powerful representations of life.

Many cultures associate the butterfly with our souls.

The butterfly represents endurance, change, hope, and life.

  1. Liz, this is such a neat idea, and I love that it’s an attractive piece on its own, even aside from the meaning. The symbolism and significance of each element is a beautiful record of transformation for the person wearing it.

  2. Liz, I agree with Rena who voiced all my thoughts. I love the concept and wish you well in your creativity journey.

  3. Love this idea! Such a beautiful and practical reminder/memento of the recovery journey.
