In The Rough

This silver bead shows a diamond, purely perfect, on one side, blending into a rough stone, on the other side. It reminds us that beauty is always present. Sometimes, it just needs to be brought forth, with a little bit of care. 

The Designer

Michael, USA

My name is Michael Nylander, and I have a disability known as Strumpell Lorrain Syndrome, which makes it difficult for me to walk, and has me requiring the use of a walker. Still though, I do not let this stand in my way. I am the type of person that is always making others happy, and always reaching for my dreams, no matter what. I feel it is always important to reach for ones dreams, and to not let anything hold us back. Life is an adventure. And that adventure can be wonderful, if we always remember to reach for our dreams.
