Michael Jackson’s This is It tour was getting it’s final touches in June of 2009. It was then at he commissioned this bracelet, inspired by the one wore on his right wrist, as a thank you gift for his cast and crew.
Having participated in the 1996 HIStory tour as the makeup and hair stylist for the cast and band, Randi Måvestrand knew Michael and kept in touch with her long time friend Karen Faye, Michael’s personal stylist. When Faye asked if she’d be interested in designing a sample, Måvestrand eagerly began hand crafting a bracelet which embodied his life long desire to bring peace to people and heal the world. The inscription on the silver face reads “Heal the World” while the reverse reads “Love Michael.” Upon seeing the handcrafted piece Michael loved it. Days prior to kicking off the tour, Michael passed away. Faye reported that she had lovingly tied this bracelet to Michael’s ankle while preparing his body for burial.
We had the privilege to take a close look at these delicate accessories. Whether it’s the emotion driven by the circumstances or the intensity of the message, one is immediately drawn in.
Jewelry design is a labor of love for Randi Måvestrand as she primarily works in the entertainment industry as a hair and makeup stylist. With encouragement from Michael’s fans, she has continued to produce the bracelets which can be purchased here.
