EARRINGS (large fan)

A  purposely different but very matching  set

One of the reasons I design earrings like this is because we end to forget what earrings we are wearing. I have therefore wanted the energy of the earrings to work ‘by itself’…

A left and a right earring

One way to connect with the energy of earrings is in the morning, when you go to pout them on. I purposely make a left and a right earring.  I am often asked why . . . Attentive intention is an important ingredient of change. . .In having to think for one second which earring  goes in which ear, you remember that these earrings are not ordinary and have a purpose in your life beyond being simply beautiful. At that very moment, you can easily reinforce within yourself the deep inner reason why you want to wear those earrings. They have a meaning for you, they represent the inner you and what you are walking toward…

NOTE: The  semi-precious stones are 6x8mm & 3mm.

Trees of Life, Love and Knowledge (simple)

The specialness of these pieces is their utter simplicity.

The tree is so representative of the human life, and carries within it so much teaching for us to use. I cut each tree by hand and even though I use the same basic design, each one is truly individual, just like each human life is unique.

The smallest tree is nickel-size, the medium is quarter-size, the largest is dollar-size. I can make you any style tree (simple or with a heart) in any of those 3 sizes.

They all come with a 20″ adjustable  round snake chain.

NECKLACE (5 links)

How Things Sometimes Work

When I first had the idea of making such a style of necklace, it was with the intention  of basically doing what I do with the extra-small earrings  HERE and thus offer you the possibility of choosing among many small pieces to make your own combination.

However, I have not been able to do this once yet! Indeed, whenever I start working, these pieces quickly become part of a whole story, that of what it takes to truly transform, and often the energy swings back and forth between all the pieces. Though I will be very happy to make you  a necklace with individual pieces that have meaning for you (as in possibly a piece for each member of your family?),   I have decided to stay in my own work with  pieces which together make an entire  5-chapter story,  so more in the vein of the linked bracelets HERE.

These necklaces have become among my favorites. I just love the way the energy swings from one piece to to the other and ends up settling on the center piece.

They are best worn close around the neck. An adjustable chain works perfectly for this!“The More Fully I Know and Live the Joyful Lightness and the Very Real Depth of Life,

The More Magic becomes part of Every Day, Normal, Spontaneous and Natural”

BRACELETS (linked)

A Long Story. . . a Renewing Cycle

Ah… a bracelet… Like a ring, you always see it. It is a very personal piece. Like a ring, it encircles you with its energy…

It tells the story of the seasons which exist in everything. It reminds you of each step needed in the process of change, from clearing cluttered  space within ourselves to the creating our dreams; A bracelet represents the eternal cycle of our lives, going ever deeper in the reclaiming of the totality of who we are, layer after layer after layer…

The symbolism is very strong. The main sentence is engraved on the center piece of the bracelet. however, there is also a short phrase written in the back of each piece to help you anchor deeper the meaning of each link. Each link is therefore a miniature story unto itself.

Being Part of the Story, Living each Season

The idea is to participate in the story….A bracelet is like a brand new house. All the needed elements are there, but you still need to make it yours by painting walls, adding furniture and so on… Play with the design, see how each element represents a part of your inner-self, a part of your life, some of it known or resolved, some of it not.  Make it be a part of who you are at the deepest level!

EARRINGS (large tablet)

A  purposely different but very matching  set

The concept behind my earrings is simple but powerful and full of symbolism:. Each earring in a set  has a different design but both go very purposefully together: Indeed,  they are linked together by the fact that each one is  holding the energy of  half of the sentence written in the back. . . Together, they tell a true story of change, one which I have lived. . . . So when you wear the earrings, the idea is that you become part of this story of change, you are automatically immersed in it. Indeed, you are surrounded by the beginning on one side and the end result on the other side, so the energy of what it took for me to go through that change litterally passes through you.

A LEFT & A RIGHT EARRING

 I am often asked why I make left and right earrings. . . Attentive intention is an important ingredient of change. . .In having to think for one second which earring goes where, you remind yourself that these earrings are not ordinary and have a purpose in your life beyond being simply beautiful. At that very moment, you reconnect with the deep inner reason you want to wear those earrings. They have a meaning for you, they represent the inner you and what you are walking toward, or something else all together, but nevertheless very precious…

NOTE: The  semi-precious stones are 6x8mm & 3mm.

RINGS (large)

The rings are my personal favorite as I feel they are my most powerful pieces. Why? Because you wear such a ring truly for you (with the design facing you, not the outside onlooker), and therefore it constantly talks to you. And it does so in a very potent yet protective way: The shape of the ring feels like a shield, and so you feel like a warrior in wearing it.

These larger  rings are for a medium to large hand. They are adjustable so you don’t have to worry about fit. On the back of each shank,  “in” your hand, so to speak,  is a secret symbol for you to give personal meaning to. Use it as a personal reminder of something you cherish or care about. The symbols can be anything from an angel to a sun. I use many others.

PENDANTS (large)

Decisions . . .

Deciding on a small or large pendant depends on:

  • Your size
  • The power of the statement you want to make, and how comfortable you are in “putting yourself” out there.
  • Your budget.

If you see a pendant you like but would prefer to have in another size, it is always possible, though keep in mind that I will not be able to put as much detail in a small pendant as I can in a bigger one.  Just contact me, so we can discuss your desires.

Mixing the ageless look of my pieces with the contemporary look of the smooth tube, brings a contrast that I find very appealing, like a complete look that includes two opposites. Nowadays, this is what I mostly use.

Those pieces  include an ADJUSTABLE chain, max 20″ and as short as you need at any time, so you can adjust it very precisely to the length you need, and change it at will.
