My friends and I recently shared our leather bracelet making expertise with the students and staff at the first ever Dover High School "Reset Day". Mental health was the focus as the students and staff took a day off from their classes in order to participate in different activities that supported personal well-being and self-care.

Keeping in theme with my Compassion Collection of engraved dog-tag-like jewelry pieces, we selected a Nelson Mandela quote to engrave onto  leather "plates". My friend, Juan Navarro from Lightgroove Studios donated his laser engraving cutting services, engraving and cutting a total of 194 plates for this event. The quote; "It Always Seems Impossible Until It's Done".

My team and I came up with six different leather bracelets designs for the students and faculty members to choose from. We gathered beads of many variations, sizes and colors. We gathered the leather and the elastic cords for stringing. We even provided leather strapping and rivets for those who preferred to create their own one-of-a-kind pieces.

We were given the opportunity to share with them the creative process and its healing benefits. It was a rewarding experience for us and a fun day for all!!!
