Here is Gail's story of her deep connection with Hillary Clinton:
My Purpose for making Jewelry for Hillary Clinton
I believe the best way to support Hillary Clinton’s Presidential Campaign is to use my God-given talent as a World Acclaimed Bead Artist and design jewelry for her. By making accessories, I hope that Hillary will have one less thing she will have to think about. This would allow her to focus on what is more important: her campaign to become the President of the United States.
Making jewely for Hillary Clinton
I have studied Hillary’s jewelry for a long time. My team searched for every photo we could find and I would stand right next to her television footage to gauge the size of the beads, the colors and the styles she wears most often. I understood that the style had to be more conservative but I wanted to include my Gail Be modern twist that makes my styles unique.
To accessorize Hillary Clinton is to make sure that the necklaces did not detract from her face, but add to her appearance. In business a woman's power tie is her jewelry.
I use vintage Austrian Crystal and vintage German beads taken from their original packages. These beads have never been worn. Because her traveling and speaking schedule is so heavy and the many negative attacks hurled at her I used mostly natural stones to help keep her grounded and give her strength.
The necklace she wore when we met at her Reception was made with natural carnelian stones, a deep burnt orange shade and brown agate beads. The center bead alone I spent over 2 hrs sitting on the floor going through over a thousand stones to find the perfect look for the feature stone.
I also believe that the energy of the actual beads, of the person who wears them, and of the Artist goes into each of my pieces. That is why I use vintage beads that have not been worn before because I don't know who wore them last.
Being a Woman, an American Artist, an entrepreneur, running a small business, and surviving adversity all represent what Hillary Clinton is about. Anyone that works hard in America can live their dream.
Beading Great Art pieces is my calling. And to be able to Help Hillary Rodham Clinton after she helped me start my small jewelry business 24 years ago is my way to reciprocate by helping her as much as I can.
I told her I believed in her when I made jewelry for her in 1992 and I believe in her even more now in 2016.
Hillary Clinton is the most mentally prepared, political experienced, and intelligent person running for the 2016 Presidency. She is the most articulate speaker who clearly states American ideas and policies here and on the world stage. She is on every level the best Presidential Candidate for the United States.
I can say first hand that the graciousness she greeted me with showed me she really does care about the American people. Making my unique jewelry for her is the best way I know how to support her.
It is my honor to support Hillary Rodham Clinton for the Presidency of the United States.
