Embrace What Makes Your Soul Happy!

RLT Collection is a line of handcrafted accessories by Emmy Award Winning AIDS Activist Rae Lewis-Thornton. This collection is comprised of Knitted, Crocheted and Beaded items designed and hand crafted solely by Rae Lewis-Thornton.

I began RLT Collection as line of fashion bracelets with AIDS Awareness at the epicenter. My desire is to make AIDS Awareness a trend in fashion, "wear red" as a way to fight stigma and show support for those living with HIV/AIDS.

After 6 months I expanded the line of bracelets with three permanent but evolving collections, Pearls, Red and Black with bi- annually seasonal collections of bracelets with a necklace or two. While the {RED} Collection is my "Awareness Collection," the {RED} theme is added into every single collection.

Almost a decade later, I have expanded RLT Collection to include accessories that exhibit my talent and love for design and hand work. This includes, knitting, crochet and sewing. With a painting or two added along the way. The {Red} Awareness theme will be added to my knit wear and my art.

As a 38 year survivor of HIV/AIDS my philosophy is "Embrace What Makes Your Soul Happy," art makes me happy. I see my different expressions of art form as a way of giving a piece of myself.

Weaved into every brush stroke, every beard design and every Knit and Pearl is hope, faith and love, perseverance, fortitude, activism and let's not forget her savvy style. Artist; Author; Desinger; Statement Necklaces; Tea Connoisseur, RLT Collection is all things Rae Lewis- Thornton!
