TORONTO, Dec. 11, 2012 /CNW/ - With the holiday season in full gear, Mark Lash Jewelry is excited to announce their affiliation with The HOPE-KNOT Project, a charity organization by the Women's Brain Health Initiative to create awareness and escalate concern over the unchecked growth of dementia and other aging brain diseases in women!
Every year millions of women will disappear without ever leaving the room, and in fact, 70% of new Alzheimer's patients will be women. Mark Lash was so taken with this charity that he decided to join the organization's Board Of Directors and design exclusive jewelry items that they can sell to help raise funds for this great cause.
On his vision for the Hope-Knot items, Lash, comments, "Combating women's brain disorders is a cause close to my heart. I have first-hand experience of the devastating impact on family and friends who have been afflicted and affected by Alzheimer's disease and other dementias. These high functioning, independent and loving individuals became a mere shadow of themselves. My inspiration for the Hope-Knot design came from the complexity and interconnectivity of the brain itself. I wanted to show the deterioration of the brain but I also wanted to keep the strength and beauty of the person intact. The Hope-Knot is a contemporary interpretation of the human brain. The open space represents how disease destroys a healthy brain while the intertwining aspect of the design represents how messages become scrambled as the disease progresses. The Hope-Knot can be worn by men and women to remind us all of the women in our lives - our mother, daughter, sister, partner or best friend - and how much we depend on their memories and insights."
Over the past couple weeks, the Hope-Knot pendants, broaches and cuff links, each made out of either 14kt white gold or silver, have become not only a symbol of hope and inspiration, but top selling items chosen by prominent celebrity talk show hosts around the country, such as Entertainment Tonight Canada's Cheryl Hickey, for ET Canada's Holiday Gift Guide.
