"The unbreakable heart bead was inspired by a loss. At the time, I wished my heart was armored, unbreakable and hard. Eventually, I began to feel better and realized that the support of friends and family helped me heal, showing me that no matter what happens, every heart can be mended and made stronger." - Cynthia Thornton, artist
