Happy Wednesday, guys!
Today I have something to share with you guys, that I am extremely passionate about! About a week ago, I was at one of my favourite cafés to get some work done, and noticed that one of the guys working there, was wearing a beautiful twirly copper bracelet. Ever so curious to get one myself, I had to ask him, where he had bought this unique piece of jewellery. He told me, that a homeless guy named Darren had made it to him for his spare change. I completely lid up, as I'd come across the same guy who had made me some copper flowers for my spare change on my many trips to the Columbia Rd. flower market, which I had started to collect whenever our paths would cross. That he also made such beautiful bracelets, was just incredible!
Today, as I was sitting at the same café, Darren came by. I had to go chat to him, and explained how I was wondering if he would make me a bracelet too, and to my luck this kind kind man was more than happy to, and as he did, he told me his story. How he was from South Africa where he was a safari guide in a hot air balloon. How he came to England and married a beautiful girl and had his heart broken. How it had all just fallen to pieces from there.
While he was making me this bracelet as we were chatting, he told me how he had never felt comfortable begging. He was homeless, not helpless, in his own words. Darren is such an amazing, kind and truly lovely man with such an amazing aura around him and the heart in the right place. All this man needs is a hand, and he'll be doing amazing things.
This was the first bracelet he had done with a glass piece in it. I think his work is beautiful, unique and truly outstanding. Everything he does is handmade and comes with a story. I personally think these should be available for everyone to buy, and I wanted to hear your opinions!
What do you think? If these (all unique pieces) would be available to buy online, would you guys be keen?
SO INTERESTED IN HEARING WHAT YOU GUYS THINK OF THIS
