These beautiful bracelets are finally available!!!!
Handmade by my darling friend Leah and I.
We have been cutting, sanding, stamping, polishing and bending copper for the last 72 hours!!! We are busier than Santa’s workshop over here!!
My friend Leah has been hand stamping protection amulet necklaces and bracelets for the past 3 years now. Each amulet is blessed by the salty beachy air, the water from the pacific ocean, the flames from the fire pit in her backyard, and the dirt from her garden.
For me these amulets were love at first sight. Simple, beautiful and personalized. Over the last couple years I have gifted them to almost everyone I know! Check out: www.leahinleucadia.com
I love the look of stamped metal so much, so I brought over this silver cuff I had to see if Leah could turn it inside out and stamp it with something cool. I had ordered the cuff online and had it engraved with Hello…x (for my last album) but it was so lightly engraved, I never wore it.
A couple weeks later, she sent me this photo:
She had turned the cuff inside out and stamped it with a lyric from one of my new songs, Never Say Never. It reads, “Maybe the best hasn’t happened yet”.
This song was the only song I hadn’t written when I had started recording my album, it just kinda popped out at the last minute. The album starts with a song called “Say Anything” and ends with a song called “Never Say Never”…kinda bi-polar if you ask me! Ha.
The song was written after I ended things with a guy I had started dating, and when he asked if I would ever go back to my ex, I replied with something like “…well, i don’t think so, cause I know that relationship wasn’t healthy. I know I deserve more, and will find someone who will love me the way I want to be loved…but, never say never.”
Needless to say, my man friend did not like my response. But its true, we just never know. Crazier things have happened, even when you are so sure, things can change on a dime. It makes me want to just surrender even more, and let go of attachment and just go where feels good in my heart. Its taken me a while to get it through my head, but I truly believe the universe is conspiring in the best way possible for us, for our hearts, and for love.
And, I kid you not, as I type this now, from Leah’s counter top, as she is stamping away, Never Say Never just came on.
Leah has been one of the few people who I’ve sent tracks to while we were recording. She got to hear all the songs as they were being completed, and I think she’s been listening to them on repeat ever since.
She choose this lyric for the cuff I gave her, out of all the lyrics she heard.
She gravitated to it because at the time she was going through a situation where, in her words, “She thought she had found the best, but then she realized she hadn’t, what she thought she had, disappeared after 2 months…” As she was trying to figure out what to stamp, that lyric played..and she had an AhHa moment where she thought, oh right…Who knows..Maybe the best, HASNT happened yet!
Thus the bracelet was born, and I of course fell in love with them, and then everyone else fell in love with it. And now we have decided to make a limited number of them. For the lovers, for the dreamers, and for the believers.
These are for anyone who has ever surrendered to what is possible.
They are on copper, and made with love.
