Eeek! I'm so excited about these!
As I mentioned in the wax carving process here, I've been thinking about this idea since last August on the Appalachian Trail. I knew I had to capture the concept in jewelry.
I'm thrilled to finally be making them in silver form!
After weeks of struggling with rocks (panic while climbing them, slipping on wet rocks in river crossings, and tripping over them) rocks eventually became a symbol of strength and empowerment, once I realized what I was accomplishing (backpacking 900 miles!).
But we are more than strength - we are full of hidden talents and inner beauty.
When you turn over a rock, there is a treasure trove of life and activity. The little flower bloom inside the rock represents your secret inner world and the growth that comes from perseverance.
Here is a video showing the final steps of completing this necklace, including setting the inner flower bloom and welding on the chain.
There is even a version with a diamond (or 2 or 3!) to represent clarity and purpose.
As we continue to navigate a world in which a pandemic, climate change, and political strife seem to rule - a sense of clarity and purpose helps us to trust our inner voice and persevere through challenges.
This jewelry represents your ability to get through tough times, a reminder of your tenacity to power through but also your warmth and grace in the process.
I'm very excited to share these with you! I'll be rolling out very limited quantities of different designs as I make them.
