| the collection| Each piece in the Born an Original collection has been carefully crafted together with attention to every detail. From cutting strips of paper, rolling them into perfectly shaped beads, and carefully sewing the elements into an intricate pattern, each accessory has taken time, talent, and love. The final touch of each piece is a small label sewn to the back or inside, where the woman who made it wrote her name. Every time you wear your Born an Original piece, remember the woman whose life changed because of it. And remember that you too are an authentic, beautiful, significant woman with talents to share with the world.
