Of the many people who were instrumental in bringing the I REMEMBER BRACELET to life, I particularly thank my partners, writer, Anna Ray-Jones, and jewelry designer, Philip J. Weisner who helped to channel my vision of this endeavor from strength to strength. My great admiration to both of you. I also wish to honor the memory of my special friend, Ian James Coates, Anna’s beloved brother (1942-2017).

A special note of thanks: to my mother, Mrs. Joanie Glogover, for her untiring exploration in naming this design “I REMEMBER.” And in further gratitude: to my distinguished friends who led me the way to New York and, ultimately, to Philip J. Weisner’s jewelry studio.
A trip to Auschwitz inspired me to create this piece of jewelry as a lasting tribute to the memory of my adored late father, and Holocaust survivor, Stanley (Szlamek) Jackson Glogover, (1925-2013). Imprisonment obliterated his teenage years, but his survival and courage are a lesson to all those who endure genocidal regimes, that they may live with fierce will and endurance. He would say that his time served in Auschwitz taught him how to “Make my love useful.” His words will remain with me forever.
