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

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.
Anna Marie (#21998)

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. :))

You are an inspiration! What a beautiful child of God you are. We don't understand why horrific things happen, but we know our God is all about recovery and restoration. Your enemy will not win, God will use you and your story to change someone's world! Trust that in all things, He is in sovereign. I would like to share with you a verse that is very precious to me. It is Zephaniah 3:17 - The Lord your God in your midst, The Mighty One, will save; He will rejoice over you with gladness, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing." May God bless you always and forever. Love and hugs coming your way. Eyde

I found my bracelet for sale at the salon when I was getting my hair cut. I stood there thinking, "I'm about to spend twice this amount on a haircut. Certainly I can help save a life at the same time." Blessings on you RO! This reminds me of a POW bracelet I used to wear as a child. Now I have a new person to pray for. <3

I just received my "I Have This Hope" edition of a Branded bracelet. My specific bracelet was made by KL, as I read her story it brought me to tears. The place that she wants to live one day is Thailand. Next year I am doing a 4 month internship in Thailand working with women who were trafficked, like KL once was. As I was reading through the other stories, I was so encouraged and humbled by the hope these women have. Hope is alive and active within them, they have a story, and they have a future. So to these women: share your story. Share the hope you have for your future. You don't know who will be set free because of the bondage you survived.
Lauren (#19487)

What caught my attention at first was the KL on the side of the cuff as I have the same initials. After picking it up the information card beside it and learning about the program it seemed like unique way to help spread the message and it looks great too. Stay awesome and best of luck with your art.
Kyle (#17807)
I fell in love immediately with my necklace. I kept coming back to it over and over and was more in love with it when learned about its origins. My friend was trafficked as a teen so the issue is important to me. What amazing work.
Megan (#20544)

I don't even know what to say except what an AMAZING program, "family", collective this is. I am proud to wear my "A", and I think her story is awesome and so humbling. I'm also very proud to wear my Branded number bracelet day and night as a constant reminder of "A" and all the others out there that have suffered so. Thank you for all you do. I will tell as many people as I can about you!!!❤️

I love my Branded necklace created by RO. As a mental health therapist, I am thrilled that you not only survived your experience but was able to take the experience and turn into something positive. May your story and positive attitude impact many people.

I love my branded bracelet. I have followed End Slavery for some time and seen a lot of positive change come from the organization. I am thrilled to own such a unique piece and to be able to support and encourage survivors.

I am a survivor of sexual abuse and sexual assault. I am not what happened to me - I am who I choose to be. There is so much life ahead; I won't let someone else's horrible decisions define my future. The future is mine; the future is ours. Sending so much love to you all! We are strong, and important, and loved!

Shannon (#13091)

Know that you are a survivor which means you are stronger than you know and stronger than those who tried to bring you down. Own your freedom, own your past, own your future, but more than anything know that no one can ever claim to own you.

Thank you for this beautiful piece of jewelry! I've already bought 3 more to give as gifts. I can't wait to help spread awareness and hope! I'm praying for all these amazing women that are inspiring me to stay the path and not to give up. The best is yet to come! Thanks for letting me be part of this journey!

I picked up this bracelet after looking over the table, and to my surprise saw the number which was also my PO Box #. I know this was a God thing, and it was supposed to be mine. I pray for you and all women that go through this and have gone through it. I have 4 daughters and could not imagine this happening to any of them. Remember no matter what you go through, you have a savior that loves you, his name is Jesus. And one day evil will be banished forever. Love, Your sister in Christ
