THANK YOU GABY ONDRASEK FOR THIS BEAUTIFUL LETTER 

Today I received the most wonderful surprise. I got the news that I won  a Liliana Avila’s latest creation (Minotaur Clutch).

 

You might think how shallow and materialistic my feelings are about such a mundane price… but for me Liliana Avila and her art are more than that.

 

I left “My Venezuela” almost six years ago to start a family in beautiful Northern California. And although I feel blessed by the views, the aromas, the flavors and love that surround me, I do sometimes, look back with sadness  and think about the strength, the beauty and the pride that once I felt for “My Venezuela”.

 

Since I left, I have found myself taking about it as a foreign place, as a sick relative, as someone that you were very close with once, but you don’t know anymore… Her smile had fade away, her sweetness and arm always wide open had become a bitter and sour shield almost unbreakable by those that once loved her, and still do.

 

Until my very close and beloved friend Amerly Centeno-Rotundo changed my perception and invited me to re-discover the elegance, the beauty, the magic that once characterized “My Venezuela”. I felt thrill by realizing that it wasn’t gone… that it is still alive, and  it materializes every day in the creation of the most amazing and talented designers that she is proud to introduce to the world through her impeccable gallery OLE-UNLIMITED.

 

“Venezuela doesn’t only produce bad news”. That is a powerful statement that I used every time I show my friends this website.

 

That is how I was first introduced to Liliana Avila. I have not had the honor to meet her in person yet, but I feel there’s a big part of her that I already know.  I don’t need to sit with her and have a glass of wine (although it would be nice) to feel her strength, her intelligence, her visions and her passions. You just have to take a glimpse of her art and you will be the witness of an almost mystical fusion of creativity and magic… That is “when magic meets elegance”.

 

This is a very extensive thank you letter, but I did not want to diminish my pride and joy by editing my feelings.

 

Anybody can say that by wearing a nice piece of jewelry or a great accessory your outfit can totally change… but wearing a Lilina Avila goes beyond that.   It represents pride and beauty, strength and resurrection, and I’m sure I will do it just fine!

 

Thank you Lily for the gift of reconnection.

 

Love,

Gaby
