William Shakespeare... the famous English poet, playwright, and actor so widely recognized as the most famous poet of all time. You could live under a rock all your life and still know who this man is. You may even be familiar with some of his works, which are praised for elegant use of the English language. You do not graduate from high school without having to read at least one or more of his works. You do not pass an English class without studying his material. William Shakespeare is easily one of the top three most recognized names in the world of literature... for work that was never his.

William Shakespeare could hardly recite the alphabet much less write his own name. To put together an elegant assortment of words was absolutely not his forte.

A woman named Emilia Bassano - Emilia Lanier after marriage - wrote every last one of Shakespear's plays but he published and took credit for them because she couldn't. Bassano was both black and a woman during a time where women were portrayed by other men because women were not allowed to act, sing, or publish their writing. She died poor at the age of 76 because had never been allowed to collect any of the money received for her work. Both she and Shakespeare feared it would raise suspicion. Women caught taking part in illegal activity were punished severely and it was not worth the risk.

This item is the vessel of Amelia Bassano herself. Before she died, she willed her spirit into this item. She had never been able to receive credit for her work but it pleased her to at least do so through others. To watch her poems and plays become real, to bask in the praise even if through the success of others, and to listen to others hold her work highly inspired her further.

Upon wearing this piece you will gain all of the talent of Bassano herself. Her creativity will flow through you and you will be able to produce whatever form of art you wish to create and you can use it to earn a living. She will guide you to recognition and prosperity. If you desire to be a famous painter? So be it. A musician? She adores music and will be delighted to get you there. You want to be a famous author? A famous poet? She excels in both.

Whatever method of creation you want to indulge in and become known for, Emilia Bassano will ensure that you get there.

This is a bracelet that has real carved ivory roses on it. Roses were her inspiration, calmed her down and helped her to meditate before she wrote.
