Miquela from Great Honour Goods, has been an amazing partner to Unravel and we have been so honored to showcase not only her amazing art, but her heart to help drive funding for pediatric cancer research. She created a piece of art called "Jennifer" and all  proceeds from the sale of the "Jennifer" card have come directly to Unravel.

Meet Miquela

don't just be sorry,

Be Active.

This portrait was lovingly created using flowers leaves, twigs and other foliage from the earth. For Jennifer, I used leek greens for hair, dried king protea petals for the dragonflies, dried snapdragons for the pops of yellow and eucalyptus for the hearts (...just to name a few). Nothing is secured or permanent. Once the portrait is photographed, the pieces are recycled back into the earth or saved for the next creation.

The Jennifer Card
"Though I didn’t get to meet Jennifer myself, I feel very connected to her. I can’t really explain it, but I feel like I was meant to meet her mom, Libby, and get to be a part of Unravel. Over the past 5 years, our families have grown close and I feel lucky to call the Kranz’s, our friends.

I’m a designer by trade but, recently, when California went into quarantine, I began playing with elements from nature to create portraits. It started as a fun project to do with my kids, but quickly became a side hobby and passion for me. As I was rifling through some flower petals one day, up popped the idea of combining their shapes to create a dragonfly. That little moment sparked the concept to design a card to support Unravel.

As I played around with the leaves, twigs and flowers, my original concept evolved, and it became so much more than I had planned. It became Jennifer.

I look at the card as a representation of Jennifer’s continued life. Without Jennifer, there would be no Unravel. There, perhaps, wouldn’t be the advancements in science, or the money raised, or the big breakthroughs, without her. All of those things have helped save the lives of so many other children (and will continue to do so for years to come).

As Unravel grows, so does Jennifer’s memory — and she continues to have a great impact on this Earth.

I hope you love the Jennifer card as much as I loved creating it. "

Until there is a cure…
