What is a Transformation Necklace?
It is a one of kind design created by me during the most challenging year of my life. I embraced a huge transformation during 2017 that left me feeling unsure of my self. My self confidence was like a roller coaster and it was taking a toll on my willingness to overcome challenges and succeed. I began practicing, reading and teaching the art of zen (letting go/ letting it be) and focused my attention on self love even when I didn't feel like I deserved it. This started me into regular meditation sessions, prayer, yoga and a more minimized lifestyle. When I practiced this and established routines my mind began to clear and my thoughts were easier to digest. I began to find my true self.
All of this inspired the idea behind the transformation necklace. A necklace that symbolized growth, sustainability, a minimal lifestyle, and the many transformations you experience in a lifetime. A reminder to keep going and to enjoy the present.
- I wanted something simple that could be put on easily and could be worn with any outfit.
- I wanted something that you could wear during physical activity (yoga, trail running)
- I wanted it to be a reminder of the permanent love that is always present in your life
- I wanted it to be a reminder that your prayers/mantras will always change
Each necklace is entirely different. I carefully select precious stones that will aid in your personal transformation as well as any symbols that could help guide you on your journey through this transformation you experience in 2018.
