The Heartfelt Cure Collection is very near and dear to the hearts at Touchstone Gallery. Susan Heike-Wilhelm, co-owner, designed and created these thoughtful pieces. When you hear the word “cancer” you may think about your family members, friends, or even yourself. However, at Touchstone, we refuse to let the hope vanish from those effected by cancer. There is a clear flow of recovery and remembrance within the stones of these pieces. You can find this intricacy within the pendants, earrings and bracelets. The stunning white topaz that you see at the bottom of the earrings and pendant, and in the middle of the bracelet signifies the wondrous purity of a cure.
After all of the stages of the unknown, the clarity of remission enlightens and cares for you after such a difficult struggle. The other blush pink hearts signify the different stages of having or loving someone with cancer. This includes fining out the diagnosis, different stages of treatment, and possible relapses along the way. At the end of the bracelet near the circle clasp, you see a very small heart. Within this small drusy heart is remembrance of all those who lost their battle to this disease. In order for Touchstone Gallery to do as much as we can to find a cure, Susan and Joseph Wilhelm, owners of the Touchstone Galleries are honored to contribute proceeds from these beautifully crafted art-forms to the American Cancer Society Research department, to one day realize the cure. To all struggling with cancer, maintain your hope and have a heartfelt spirit of inspiration.
