Symbolism of the necklace in the women's recovery community
Sober Triangle - three part solution (Unity, Recovery and Service) to a three part disease - physical, mental and spiritual.
Sober Circle - Wholeness
Sober Stone - amethyst which derives its name from a Greek word meaning "not intoxicated" and has been known for the power to help one maintain sobriety.
The necklace can be worn layered with both charms or just the amethyst charm showing. The charms are rhodium plated .925 sterling silver and the crystals are Swarovski amethyst crystals.
I am a recovering woman who designed this necklace in 2009, while a resident at a women's recovery home helping women to get their lives back after the devastating effects of active alcoholism. I wanted my fellow residents to feel my gratitude for walking the journey to sobriety with me. The necklace then took on a life of it's own. Each girl wore the necklace to a meeting and other women loved it so much that I began to get orders. It was only this year that I decided to open this up to the worldwide community of recovering women.
