Gemstone & Bead
About this panel:
Just as it is with people
in all of life's various settings, each one of the beads matters. Each bead is part
of a section, just as we are part of a segment of society. And each bead
representing a dear person helps build the string that makes a panel
Every person has their place within a
given area and a particular time. And invariably, every person is
important to a great number of others.
For example: you may not know the person
who harvested the grain for your bread, but that person contributed to
your nourishment. Or you may never have met the worker who stitched
together your shirt, or spun the thread, or dyed that fabric. But they
are, in a way, a part of your life.
Imagine, if you had to make everything you
eat or use...
Each individual matters, but it
becomes clearer when you zoom in on them
The Neverending Necklace often participates in public events as an
exhibitor. You can probably imagine how busy it can get, especially
during the very popular ones.
Still, the volunteers of the Neverending Necklace get to have a
chance to chat with some of the visitors. While dedicating beads,
people will reveal a bit about their emotions, their loved ones,
their own lives. And always, they have something valuable to share.
A snippet of their life, a piece of their heart.
So it's never a just mass of people
streaming by our booth. It's an opportunity to connect with an
individual, recognizing their humanity. All within a sliver of time,
but remaining forever.

Beads are simple
things. Their message is urgent: to make a necklace, beads can be
arranged in any pattern, using any shape, color, size, age, origin
and material. The finished necklace always comes out beautiful. Just
as it ought to be with people in a functioning community.
Necklace is the very core and spine of the Love & Peace Project.
More so than any other symbol, it helps visualize love and
compassion we have for others. Accepting and embracing all.
