Later today we see the launch of the newest OHM bead Don’t Give Up, an OHMistry project in cooperation with Emily Dunbar we all know as Fashion Storyteller!
Don’t Give Up is a limited edition, only 111 beads are made. It comes with a certificate of authenticity and a corresponding code that is engraved in the bead. The beautiful box is also made by Emily!
Emily was inspired by her own journey through life facing big mountains of challenges. This bead is for everyone who faces those challenges to never give up!
“DON’T GIVE UP, you tell yourself. You feel it in your heart and soul. You are meant to succeed.
It starts with those first few steps. But with all journeys, it is a struggle of faith and self-assurance. Fear finds its way to creep in. It twists your path, voices harsh judgment, creates doubt and pain. It tries to seize the victory that awaits you.
At your darkest moment, when all feels lost, this bead reminds you to keep going. Push upwards, onwards! Faith is being sure of what you hope for and certain of what you do not see.
Having faith will guide your journey, through the darkness. The clouds will open, the path will brighten and the further you go, the clearer your path becomes. You will find unexpected help. You will experience achievements, big and small. Before you know it, you will arrive at the end and the start of a new beginning.
You will be victorious. Every fear, doubt, and painful memory will be conquered.”
Don’t Give Up is a mountain with a road littered with obstacles and monsters to overcome. Over the top and down hill on the other side on the end of that difficult road lies the reward when prevailed: you did it!
My own life stuggles centred around loosing some of the most significant people in my life. So love that was hurting was my mountain of challange.
But I feel love never really fades away, like the loved ones you’ve lost it’s always around you and comes back in other forms and people.
My heart was patched up and I could start to love again through the endless support and love of my husband. I conquered that mountain and I did it!
I combined Don’t Give Up on the leather whip bracelet with two Love Hurts, Love Hurts 2.0 and the glass beads Poisoned Apple, Green Crack and Foliage.
And I could not resist making this bangle. Don’t Give Up can also be taken literally!OHMgnome is competing in the Tour the France, climbing the highest mountain in the Alps! On that journey he is facing himself and his endurance, encountering monsters and obstacles. And at the bottom of that mountain the victory flowers await! He did it! C bangle with Buttercup, Touched, OHMgnome, Ride Me, Crossed, Don’t Give Up, Wrapped and Buttercup.
