Words from the craftswoman

Freedom is a choice and these birds represent and remind us that we are the masters of our own destiny, ultimately guided on our pathway to a future that we create. The Red Thread is an ancient Asian legend that tells of two people, destined to be together forever, who are linked by a fine unbreakable red thread. This thread ties them together through time and space, and although it may be twisted, knotted and stretched, it can never be severed. This little bird is wrapped in a single red thread. It offers us a choice to perceive that thread as something holding us captive, or perhaps it is wrapping us in our destiny - inviting us to surrender and be free as a result. The only thing we have to do is choose! This beautiful silver necklace was conceived and designed while navigating the realities of being confined in a managed isolation facility in New Zealand, part of the response to the global Covid-19 pandemic. It is also a reminder that although we are separated from those we love physically at this crazy time, we are never really apart - we are all linked by the Red Thread. Building on the belief that even if you feel like you are forever separated from the ones you love, as if a caged bird, you are still linked into eternity by the Red Thread. It is your prison or you pathway home - the choice is yours
