a global movement to raise awareness and fight for recognition, education, and research, for people living with Myalgic Encephalomeyelitis (ME) or ME/CFS). #MillionsMissing was named for those of us who have gone missing from all or some of life–those who can’t interact with their own children, go to school, work, attend gatherings and holidays, go outside or those who can do these things only some of the time. It also acknowledges that many have disappeared from the world and the medical community has taken little notice or care. I dare say we have all been victims of medical neglect and abuse by the medical establishment at one time or another. #Million’s Missing movement is celebrating it’s 6 year anniversary and combines political action with events and providing support to those with ME.
My first interaction with #ME Action, including the movie UNREST, came at a time in my life where I was very sick and isolated. Both the group and the movie felt like a new home and gave me the support and hope I needed to continue trying new medications, connecting with the ME community for support, and ultimately grieving my past life and discovering a new one.

Anyone that lives with ME is a warrior. Like many of you I have to rest after puting on clothes (and try to avoid putting on clothes as frequently as possible). Some of us are in such dire situations because of their illness that they live in their car. Enough said. Every act done by someone with ME is a warrior in my book. 5% of every sale will be donated to ME ACTION
The charms on this specific necklace are an ME WARRIOR clay pendant, a clay flower, a wire wrapped tear shaped semi-precious stone, and a starfish.
Each necklace comes with a ME WARRIOR clay pendant the color of your chosing and four additional pendants.
Each necklace is part gold plated chain (this is where he pendants go) and the rest is suede, hemp, or rope (based on your chosing).
Here is a list of pendants I have to personalize the Necklace. If the charm is clay I’ll have the color of your choice. The semi-precious stone dolors will vary based on my supply. The rest are mostly a bronzy gold unless I indicate otherwise :
semi-precious stones, teardrops and others

Trees and leaves (trees of life, various shaped leaves)
Clay monsera leaf
Animals including dogs and cats

This list is not exhaustive, please ask for something if you want it or want it for a friend’s necklace–I have lots of charms
The clay is made animal free polymer clay. To me, the clay is odorless. The letters are created individually using stamps and embossing powder. I use an acrylic varnish to coat the letters. When its dry, it is odorless. Each necklace is part gold plated chain (this is where the pendants go) and the rest is suede, hemp, or rope (based on your chosing).
