The bracelet that I created is made up of three photoetched pieces, the first and last ones being pictures of the brains of epileptic patients who have taken medication to control it. The middle piece is a photoetched picture of a patient with epilepsy who did not take the medication and it shows the area of the brain affected by epilepsy. The earrings that are included with the bracelet are pictures of epileptic brains and match those photo-etched pictures on the bracelet. The bead at the bottom of the earrings represents the medication taken by the patient helping to control the seizures. The hook of the earrings represents the electric waves that are sent to the brain causing the disease of epilepsy.
