Spera: a beautiful initiative

Spera –esperanza en latín- es una espectacular pieza diseñada por la venezolana Erika Yelo llena de amor, esperanza y solidaridad. Un renacer, lleno de colores y brillo, un impecable trabajo que también representa la capacidad de lucha y la fortaleza.

 

Hace más de un año, después de conocer y conversar con  Maria Margarita y su proyecto, a la diseñadora de joyas se le ocurrió la idea de crear una pieza que representara exactamente lo que sentía después de aquella conversación. Quedó impactada con la historia y el proceso de María Margarita, motor principal de Respirar es vivir.

 

« Pienso que la vida está llena de significados y mensajes cifrados que a veces pocos advierten. Para crear Spera me inspiré en ese renacimiento de vida de María Margarita, en su inquebrantable fuerza y esperanza que contagia a toda persona que la conoce. Spera es la materialización de todo lo que ella considera un halo de magia, esperanza y simbología, respresenta belleza, frescura, alegría, fuerza, nobleza y sobre todo: ESPERANZA, esa que tanto necesitamos todos los seres humanos en nuestro día a día » expresó Erika Yelo.

The bracelet is comprised of various braids made of silk and cotton using the colors found in Respirar es Vivir’s logo, along with gold nylon that has a small turquoise anchor dangling from one of the braids to represent hope, a medallion that says ‘Respirar es vivir’ on one side, and has a pair of lungs on the other, which is the foundation’s logo. On the other end, there is a medallion with Erika Yelo’s logo. “The combination of colors in Respirar es Vivir’s logo seemed ideal to base on Spera’s design, and since it was about combining both identities, we wanted it to represent the fundamental aspects of DNA,” explained Yelo.

 

The bracelet is available for purchase exclusively from authorized sellers in Venezuela and the United States, specifically in the store APRILIS (Caracas & Maturin), FABIOLA FONTANA (Maracaibo & Punto Fijo) and OLE UNLIMITED in Miami, Florida. Bracelets can also be purchased directly from the foundation’s website: www.respiraresvivir.org

 

All proceeds earned from selling these exclusive bracelets will go towards the Respirar es Vivir Foundation in order to contribute to the recuperation of various patients in Venezuela and the U.S. who suffer chronic obstructive respiratory diseases.

 

This beautiful project reminds us that to live in solidarity and love with others is truly wonderful, and that acts of giving and receiving are some of the most beautiful things in life.
