"We exist on this beautiful planet to change the world for the better through whatever innate destiny is bestowed upon us at birth. However for me personally, I found it near impossible to meet my full potential because something was in the way: ME."
"This design...this simple design of a concept that has been buzzing in our ears for years now began in my head, a dream I suppose. I had never seen 'self' actually connected to the heart symbol. 'Self-love' has exploded on mugs, t-shirts, journals, stickers...but connecting the word 'self' with the heart symbol as one? Linking them to complete the mantra? I had never ever seen that done before. So I suppose it came to me in a dream, I honestly don't remember how per se it blossomed, but once it did I could not silence it. I kept seeing this vision in my mind: a cursive 'self' extending to a heart symbol. It just wouldn't fade in my mind's eye until I did something with this design.
Months later, I conceived my mantra on a very small triangle and the text is actually my own handwriting! Why a triangle, you ask? It is a sacred shape that, for this purpose, meant for me the combined efforts of the body, mind, and heart; the body, soul, and spirit- the sacred union that grants all of us life. And there was born my ©Self-love Necklace. Quite possibly the jewelry creation I am most proud of.
I am on a mission, a revolution if you will. I can't imagine any message worth spreading that is more important. We exist on this beautiful planet to change the world for the better through whatever innate destiny is bestowed upon us at birth. However for me personally, I found it near impossible to meet my full potential because something was in the way: ME.
This necklace has assisted me greatly in a very imperative mental shift. Particularly on my worst days when I am harboring negativity while looking at a mirror reflection that I struggle to accept, my eyes ultimately gaze upon a subtle sparkle at my neck. In one quick moment that sweet, little necklace silences me in the midst of my body hate and reminds me of something to do instead: celebrate self. I will not tell you that wearing this necklace daily has instantly banished my insecurities forevermore, but it is a treasure and companion I will not be without. It is a quiet reminder of what must be valued in this lifetime: love of self, for without we may never truly experience the euphoria of pure existence in the moment- with body, mind, and heart; with body, soul, and spirit."
