Harmonic Tapestry

BY SARAH JOHNSON
@ VOL 23 ON SEP 01, 2017

Harmonic Tapestry is not about religion just simply a tapestry of the prayers said for others who have experience hardships and trials. Sarah Johnson spent over 7 years working with victims of sexual abuse, domestic violence and other forms of painful journeys. She needed a way to work through the pain and helplessness she often felt in the work. Sara witnessed so many miracles that have forever changed my heart. So one day she picked up a needle, thread and beads...and prayed. The outcome was amazing and there are "flaws" in the products with only means the prayers are working.

We all deserve to feel beautiful and embrace our own design. Not the design of others and allow our creative side to be loud and vibrant.
