RO, Your story is inspirational and you sound like an amazing woman. I love my small copper cuff, it matches me perfectly. Thank you for sharing your story and this beautiful piece of art I get to wear every day. Keep shining and being a voice for those who can't speak right now. Please know that you are loved!

Dearest RO, I just read your story and I want you to know how inspiring you are to me. I just read an article about the most happy and successful people in the world. What they all have in common is that they have "grit". They refuse to give up. They fall down and get back up time after time after time. That is your story! You are not only a survivor but you have grit. Keep getting up and never giving up! You are a beautiful, special, unique woman. Never forget that. You are loved!

PB - I've been thinking about you and praying for you non stop since I purchased my BRANDED bracelet at a recent craft show in Seattle. I just read a bit about you on the website and I am struck by the strength in which you stand on and the hope in how you see the world. You are a testimony of what it is to rise above and to choose bravery and love. You inspire me. I pray that you will continue to be filled with the strength and the healing and you continue to change this world for the better. May you be blessed as you help strengthen and empower others as you walk along side them. May you be blessed today and in the days forward. In His grace, Lindsey

Thank you RO for my bracelet and for you. I applaud you for your strength. The journey of discovery begins not with new vistas but with new eyes.- Marcel Proust. I am so happy that you have new eyes and can see yourself as the strong wonderful woman that you are. When I heard about Branded and what it stood for, I had to immediately get a bracelet to support what they do - empower survivors of human trafficking.

Hello! A few months ago a friend took me to a festival where I purchased a bracelet made by RO. I absolutely love the vision of this ministry. Although I don't know your story, I know a faithful God who met me when my life was unraveling many years ago. I can only tell you that He LOVES YOU so much! I am not sure hope much I can type here, so I will end here and look forward to hearing back from you. Is that how this works?

Hey there. RJ, I am wearing your bracelet and very happily so. I admire you for all you are and have accomplished. You are very loved and supported. I'm so glad to know about Branded Collective and your program and to know that some of you have found a way out. Bless you all! Much love, Pat
Patricia (#21264)
RJ - what an incredible life you have and will lead. Your work with BRANDED Collective inspires me to keep on going when life gives you challenges. I love that you love art, as I myself am also lover in the art world. I hope you can one day make it to Paris and be inspired by the art you see. But in doing so, remember that you are making art each day inspiring others like me. Thank you for your strength and sharing your story. You are brave, loved, and so important to so many in this world.

RO-your story inspired me so much. Infact this whole company inspires me bcause I am so passionate about this cause as I have a 19 yr old daughter of my own. I love to seek out jewelry wth inspiring msgs & "branded" just absolutely got me! It is such a great way to make a change. RO-what I read about you, you sound like you have such a positive attitude & such a light about you to have been through such darkness. I truly need to try & be more positive & not complain so much!! Your bracelet will remind me every single day to think of the positives, to embrace life, to let my light shine & to be the light in someone's darkness. Not only that I will never ever forget what this bracelet stands for & how strong you are & how your light is shining through. It is inspiring me to do the same... Thank you for being a role model & teaching me something I needed to learn today. My favorite quote is "we rise by lifting others up" you sure are doing that in so many ways for so many ppl. Me included. Thank you!

RJ, I read your bio, and I love my bracelet. I keep you close in my heart and send love and light to you every time I look at it. I can't imagine what you have overcome, but you inspire me with your courage and positive spirit. I am so grateful for your freedom, for your room (and your closet!), and the safety you feel now. I am praying you will live in joy and peace and grace for all of your days. Your children are so fortunate to have you as their mama. God bless you! xo Bj

I am so thankful for freedom. Yours, and mine. Although I was never enslaved physically, I was enslaved spiritually because of sin. But our Lover has redeemed us. We now can both live lives of freedom when we accept what Jesus did for us on the cross!! And we can truely live in freedom. Thank you for my bracelet and all that it stands for. I am praying for you as I wear it daily. It reminds me of your freedom, my freedom, and countless others who don't have it yet!

Hi, A! I purchased your cuff at Creation Northwest in Kennewick, WA yesterday at the tenth avenue north booth. They are my favorite band so this cuff is super-special to me. You are so strong, I know it. I feel blessed that your cuff found me. Please keep fighting the good fight. You are a survivor with amazing fortitude. I will be praying for you and your journey daily. God is soooooo good! Thank you for this awesome new addition to my jewelry box <3 With love and prayer, Xica

I am so honored to wear these earrings that are a symbol of such tragedy, but will in turn allow me to "wear the story, share the story and change the story." Together we can make a positive difference. "These things I have spoken to you, so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world." John 16:33

Every day begins anew. Even in the darkest hour life moves forward sometimes struggling to let the sun warm the soul. But the sun does rise each day. While we are strangers, I want you to know I send my strength, my hands to help you move forward. You are beautiful, you are loved, and you are unique.

J I absolutely love my bracelet. I had no idea if the significance of it. I'm even more in love with it now. You are in my thoughts, in my prayers and will always be on my arm! Be well wherever you are and know some guy in Nashville is wearing your art and will be praying for you every time I look at it!

I stumbled upon BRANDED via instagram, and immediately fell in love with the beautiful simplicity. I have to admit, I purchased my first cuff bracelet selfishly because I loved the style. Until I got my bracelet and learned the WHY behind these beautiful pieces. Immediately, I fell in love. RJ, you create beautiful work. However, I'm more moved by who you are, and the journey you've walked. How beautiful it is that the Lord takes our messy and makes beauty. There is joy in the morning. Praying that God will continue to use you to radiate His grace and love.

I bought my branded necklace today. I've had it on for 2 hours now and I feel like I carry this woman of God with me. She's close to my heart and it's a constant thought to pray for her. I hope you know how loved you are by a God who is so big but yet he created you knowing every little detail he wanted to perfect you with. Your life is so precious in His eyes and your purpose is beautiful. Your worth is undefinable and on the days when the clouds seem to be a little darker and stay a little longer, may you always remember WHOS you are.

"When You don't move the mountains I'm needing You to move, when You don't part the waters I wish I could walk through, when You don't give the answers as I cry out to You, I will trust in You." Lauren Daigle is my favorite musical artist and these words got me through very dark moments. I bought my first Branded tiny cuff today. I saw the initials RO and my favorite song of Lauren Daigle's "Trust in You" came on my playlist. And I prayed. I prayed for RO. I prayed that even though I don't know her, I do know I want her strength, her perseverance. This is more than a bracelet to me. It is a reminder that God can make any story beautiful. 21998- those numbers will remind me that I am branded in Christ. My story is imperfectly perfect. My story is beautiful. The initials "RO" will remind me to be strong and persevering in any circumstance. I will not allow my past to define me, and with God given strength I'll crush the obstacles in my future. I feel honored to wear your bracelet RO. It's beautiful.

I love my bracelet made by RJ <3 I think it is truly amazing that a woman can turn a negative experience into such a positive outcome. It just proves that God's grace and mercy is real. Your past does not define you're future. Thank you for this amazing addition to my jewelry collection BRANDED

You never know how strong you are until the next time you have to overcome something. All you ladies give an immense amount of inspiration to ANYONE facing a challenge. In this life, we are not what happens to us. We are the beauty, compassion, and strength that continues despite the darkness that tried to enter our lives! You all are an excellent confirmation of that.

Isaiah 32:2 When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze. Even in the times it don't feel like it God is with you. Jesus is walking beside you daily and caring you at times. Keep the faith. May God bless you.

Thank you for sharing your story with me!! I'm so glad that you've become comfortable enough with what has happened to you were you can make a difference and have a voice for those who can't. I'm a 14 year old girl from the Chicago, just visiting my aunt for the week and we came upon your bracelets. We were both touched on how brave you all are. I hope you all conquer your biggest dreams, since you've already climbed the mountain. :))
