This bead design features a silver volcano, with a cinnamon stone, at the top, where it represents lava, as the volcano is erupting. This bead reminds us to always embrace our inner power, and to listen to what our inner flame tells us. Volcanoes, to me, represent movement, and change. So this bead also serves as a reminder to not sit stagnant but to always be ready to embrace whatever change may come your way. 

The Designer

Michael, USA

My name is Michael Nylander, and I have a disability known as Strumpell Lorrain Syndrome, which makes it difficult for me to walk, and has me requiring the use of a walker. Still though, I do not let this stand in my way. I am the type of person that is always making others happy, and always reaching for my dreams, no matter what. I feel it is always important to reach for ones dreams, and to not let anything hold us back. Life is an adventure. And that adventure can be wonderful, if we always remember to reach for our dreams.
