Jewelry tells the story of who you are
Jewelry reflects our desires and projects our values. Used for centuries by royalty from all kingdoms, jewelry has served as a show of power and distinction of privilege. In that time those who were born into privileged situations were regarded as higher up, as gods or all knowing powers. In recent human history there has been a reckoning of our place on earth. We have broken down old beliefs and systems of power to create a more equal way of seeing one another. With this change, jewelry has become less a symbol of power and more one of personality, a reflection of who we are and what we care about. It has also allowed us to claim our royalty, to see ourselves as nobility, to become that which we dream about.
What do you want jewelry to say about you? What do you want jewelry to symbolize? Are you powerful, lovely, soft, strong, at peace? What do you want to see when you look in the mirror? You are what you want to see. The universe is made of ideas, ideas that become reality, like seeds becoming flowers. A simple symbol can act as a reminder of aspirations, shifting your internal dialogue, working towards the becoming of your perfection. Jewelry is that symbol. It has the ability to reflect your thoughts and remind you of who you truly are.
Your jewelry tells the story of who you are.
