A reminder of our inner strength through a bronze bird and silver power ring

steel and bronze bird music box and silver power ring handcrafted by Seattle artist Catherine Grisez

Sometimes we need to test our limits to remember how strong we are.

When I go backpacking and hike up mountains, I’m reminded I’m capable of more than I think and know I can push myself through hard times when I’m back home.

Testing physical limits helps us conquer emotional trials.

When I exercise at the gym, it’s easy to not do things I don’t feel like doing. But when you’re in the wild and life depends on covering a certain distance with the food you have allotted or getting back to the trailhead by nightfall, you tap into a surprising sense of resilience and perseverance. This easily translates to other areas of life as well, like pushing limits within my career and art practice.

This pairing is a perfect testament to that inner power and balance of grit and fortitude.

When I’m home I like to have visual reminders of that inner strength I have in the wilderness. Seeing this music box on my shelf or ring on my finger reminds me to tap into that power on days when it feels hard.

The bronze bird with a broken wing represents the challenges we face while the large silver sea flower power ring shows our beauty and strength. The bird music box sculpture comes in two versions, Witness, which plays the song What A Wonderful World, and Broken, which plays the song After the Lovin’ .

Need a reminder of strength in your life?

Get the ring, Witness music box sculpture or Broken music box sculpture today and always be reminded of your tenacity and courage.
