my hands have been busy lately and my heart full and it is with deep gratitude to stacy for her teaching, nudge, encouragement, for what is evolving from this. thank you.
i strongly believe in the power of intentions and use them regularly in my life - for big dreams, day to day, my yoga practice, my creative journey, etc. Intentions help to guide us along our journey, sometimes redirecting us from what we originally planned, but present in our thoughts and hearts as a subtle reminder, a silent but powerful foundation from which to build our dreams upon.
i created these necklaces as a small reminder of the intention for those who wear it. the pendants are small, about the size of a penny, and each is uniquely stamped by hand. the whole necklace is lightly oxidized to create a slight aged patina. accompanying each pendant, is a small collection of natural materials (various gemstone chips, freshwater pearl, and a tiny shell found on the shore of the ligurian sea) to provide a connection to the environment.
what is the inspiration? it is inspired by those who stop to pick up a lucky penny along their path, or flip one over heads up for the next passerby, or who carry one with them - like my grandfather who would wear a penny in his shoe daily. i am inspired by those who seek, who look around and discover, who notice the details and believe in the magic of the everyday.
a selection of necklaces can be found in my etsy
