Ive just learnt this from another poster and felt it warranted its own thread.

please see link:  http://mjbracelet.com/

The story of the bracelet                      


Everyone was always asking about the red bracelet Michael Jackson wore around his wrist. It was a friendship bracelet that was given to him, and he was told he had to wear it until it fell off.  He wanted to have a bracelet like it made to give to the crew of the “This Is It” tour to solidify the unity in the project and to remind us to heal the world.

 Mid-June this year (2009), Michael’s make-up/hair artist and dear friend of mine, Karen Faye came to me and asked if I would be interested in doing it.  I jumped at the chance, and quickly designed a piece made of silver and nylon, to look like the friendship bracelet he’d requested. It said “Heal The World” on one side and “Love, Michael” on the other. Karen showed it to MJ and he love it!

Unfortunately, soon after, the world suffered the enormous loss of this talented man.

Karen participated in the preparing of his body for burial. After he was
lovingly dressed, she tied the bracelet he had chosen, around his ankle.

I would like to do something here that might be special, personal and
meaningful for you, his fans. I want to offer you a copy of the piece I
made. When I say copy, I mean that I will make an original,
approximately the same size, and shape, with the same words.  If and
when that gets to be too much for me, I will manufacture small batches
of caste silver pieces for you. They will still be put together by hand, and
with love, the way Michael intended.


Basically karen Faye says on her facebook that she has tied one of these bracelets around MJs ankle in his coffin.. and she is directing people from her facebook to this site for people who want to buy it.

i feel sick.. please tell me she isnt making money from this??

This is the same version I know - Marlon or the funeral director told her, how nice he would be.
I don't know a version that she made the make-up for him and I'm still on her facebook.

I still don't know what I should think about her - but maybe the seller of the bracelets is an ********????

I am soo angry right now i could kick someones ass.

All her little devotees on facebook are all supporting her.. are they blind?   This is not a nice thing... this is fleecing money of grieving fans.  

Uurgh..  she needs to stop.

Her behaviour is hurting Michael and that hurts me.  She is disgraceful.

Oh for Gods sake! :evil:
This is getting absolutely ridiculous.
She claims to be a "close" friend of Michael and then starts cashing in on his "death"!
I hope Michael is using this time to figure out who is TRUE friends are.

I never thought that Karen could sink this low. She clearly doesn't realise how disrespectful her behaviour looks to outsiders and fans. I question her intentions - does she realise how this looks? Maybe she's just not that bright.

What makes me angry is that she is missing the point and trying to take the fans for fools.

it is clear that she is trying to make a profit here....  if she was a true friend of MJ she would not be yapping on facebook...  and instead of asking the fans to pay $40 for a trinket her friend makes, she should be saying "donate that $40 to a charity instead".

That was MJs message.

She is missing it.  If i can understand MJs message when i have never met the man, why cant she?

I agree! I don't understand where Karen's mind is? :?  I can't believe that she's trying to make money off of Michael name and his "death" when she swore that she would not make money off of MJ's name or "death". I think her followers are blind. They all seem to happy to talk to and get to know someone who was close to Michael Jackson(when she probably wasn't as close as she thought :roll: ) to see what she's doing. They actually defend her on her FB account! :shock:  It's really sad that those people can't see what this woman is doing and what type of person she is!! I feel sorry for those people that follower her, hopefully someday they will see the light!

I agree that her behavior is hurting Michael and hurts his fans that see what she's doing. She is disgraceful and needs to stop NOW!  :twisted:  :evil:  :x  :twisted:

Keep the faith. The truth will prevail! :roll:  Karen was NOT a true friend of MJ, if she was, she wouldn't be doing the things that she's been doing! A true friend doesn't talk about someone behind their back, they keep stories secret. She refuses to tell people what Turkle means and why Michael gave her the nickname saying it's private and between her and Michael, but she tells stories that happened during the time she worked for Michael on her FB, that could be embarrasing for MJ? What's wrong with her? I guess she doesn't know the meaning of friend! :roll:

She is missing Michael's message big time, either that she doesn't care what his message is. I too have never met the man bit I understand it! She worked for him for years and she can't?

It's becoming mor and more clear that Michael didn't have a lot of true friends. He had a lot of people who wanted to be his friend because of his name and money. They just want to leech on him. Some members of his family's like that! You should  at lest be able to trust your family!

I feel so bad for Michael.  :( I hope if he is alive, he's using this time to reevaluate who his true friends are aren't. And if he isn't alive, i hope he sees what people aon earth are doing to his fans! :twisted:

I have only one problem, and its not the bracelet... ;)

I *know* that Karen wrote "they told me he looks beautiful" and this means, she doesn't saw him herself.
And now is written:

And the only thing I want to know is - did SHE told anybody that SHE was preparing the body?! If she does it would be clear for me that she's lying.

@mehere.. Karen Faye put that link on her Facebook

@mykidsmum..  im just worried that she is making money from fans grief.  If part of the money was to be donated to charity then i would be more comfortable.  To say this bracelet is the same as the one in his grave is very emotive and plays on peoples hearts.

listen guys, this bracelet is beautiful with a good message and something MJ himself wanted to give as a gift.  You guys are expecting too much from people, you are expecting everyone to be saints, but the fact of the matter is, we all have people we have to take care of and we all need food on our plate and need to make a living.  This isn't debasing MJ at all.  It serves to connect his fans with his memory, the fact that you look at the bracelet and know that MJ has one tied to his ankle is a comfort to many.  I don't think, if this gives fans comfort and happiness, that MJ would have disapproved.  Is this guy supposed to give away his time to make these bracelets and precious silver for free?  Give me a break, it's an honest living.  If Karen Faye helped design this than she deserves a cut, just like anyone else.  You all sound like a bunch of jealous females.  MJ was a grown man and capable of making his own decisions, obviously he saw something in Karen Faye that made him want to keep her around.  I think in the years that he knew her, he realized that she can't keep a secret and he still chose to keep her around...Is she the best friend?  I dunno.  Is she honest?  I dunno, but she sure is giving MJ fans something that he couldn't, a glimpse into his private life.  And for what it is worth, everyone who hates her are right there eating up everything she has to say.  If NO ONE wanted to hear what she had to say then she wouldn't be saying it.  I'd like to see what all of us would do in her situation.  We can say we would be loyal and true, but I'm sure even the best of us would brag.  Don't judge until you have spoken to her face to face or have met her...This is what MJ asked of people about himself.  You don't know, maybe MJ gave her permission to spill secrets in hopes that it will cause some attention...MJ is the master of creating attention and publicity!  Just take it easy guys...I like the bracelet very much and think it is beautiful.  Thanks for reading my very first rant! :oops:

I don’t think its right that you label us as a collective of "jealous females" that’s just rude.  Are you really in the position to make such sweeping generalisations?  You act like some kind of irrational dislike for this woman has been formed.  Obviously we all need to put food on the table but, is business really that bad for Karen that she needs to off load this tacky merchandise on grieving, gullible fans with the pretence of this bracelet being tied to Michaels ankle? Surely donating money to charity or buying Michaels music is a better way to "connect to Michaels memory". I don’t hate Karen I just think her behaviour is inconsistent and her actions are not that of an intelligent woman. JMO!
