ELEMENTS
This is the hallmark design created by Barbara Bacigalupi in 2001. Originally called UMANObeads, these art objects were renamed TRULYHUMANmedallions in 2012 to emphasize that the focus belongs on the medallion and its meaning for building a more truly human way of life. By the way, Barbara's book, entitled Truly Human, is a study in the importance of conceptual thinking if we are to discover our life's purpose.
