BB Becker's Blog

I just wanted to share this story!  It really touched me since my mom recently passed away too. -BB

"Dear BB and Josephine,

I'm sitting in my niece's house in Renton, Wahington, wearing your "wherever you are" bracelet that I purchased today in Bellevue.

I flew up yesterday from my home in the San Francisco Bay Area.  I brought my mother's ashes back to her childhood home, to be placed along side my father's urn.442-153.thumb

Tomorrow, my niece, nephew, and I will make a pilgrimage to Mt. Raineir to scatter some of her ashes on her beloved mountain, lovingly referred to by us as, "mama's mountain".

I loved your bracelet the minute I saw it, and when I read what it said, I cried.  I feel very comforted to have found this message on this day, in this place.  I never plan on taking it off.

Thank you.

Patricia"

Denver jeweler BB Becker believes a series of events ordained by a higher power led to a bracelet he designed being featured in the hit music video “Wherever You Are” by Military Wives Choir.

The video of the song—a No. 1 hit in the United Kingdom—features the bracelet as its first image. The image showcases an engraved quotation displaying words from Gandhi: "There are no goodbyes for us. Wherever you are, you will always be in my heart." 

A series of fortuitous events led the piece into the hands of one of the singers in Military Wives Choir.

Becker had sold the Gandhi-inspired bracelet to David Baker of River Oak Diamonds in England, who in turn sold it to a mother of a soldier serving in Afghanistan. The woman then gave the jewelry piece to her daughter-in-law, a singer with the choir.  

“It is amazing,” Becker tells JCK. “I didn’t even know about it until three weeks ago. I am happy to play a part in something beautiful.”

DENVER (MarketWatch) — BB Becker, a boutique jeweler from Denver, makes bracelets inscribed with a quote from Gandhi: “There are no goodbyes for us. Wherever you are, you will always be in my heart.”

Becker sold some of these bracelets to David Baker of River Oak Diamonds in Gateshead, England.

Baker, in turn, sold one to a woman whose son was serving in Afghanistan. The woman gave it to her daughter-in-law. The daughter-in-law became part of a chart-topping music sensation in the United Kingdom called the Military Wives Choir.
