Jewelry may actually be more important right now than ever before. Jewelry has superpowers. It transforms basic outfits into art. Remind us of a person, place, or feeling. It brings a sense of identity, normalcy, and comfort into our everyday. While you may be wearing lots of weekend yoga outfits a necklace or pair of earrings helps you feel instantly elevated. That necklace you bought yourself to serve as a milestone or a reminder grounds you and helps you feel more like yourself.
It helps brings familiarity into our everyday
Putting on your favorite piece of jewelry is an easy way to help you feel more like yourself and help you feel a sense of normalcy in an uncertain world. It can act as an anchor to help us connect with who we truly are or want to become.
It can help connect us when we're apart
Jewelry can bring a time, person, place, or feeling into your everyday. It's a great way to hold someone or a memory close to us even when we can't be physically together.
It instantly elevates even if you're feeling lazy
Add a pair of sassy earrings to your yoga ensemble and you instantly feel more put together and ready to attend that zoom meeting like a boss.
It can ground you and remind you how far you've come
Using jewelry as a talisman to commemorate a big moment in your life is a great everyday reminder to celebrate our achievements.
It can simply add beauty to your day
"I dont think of all the misery but of the beauty that still remains"
On my 13th birthday, I received a set of silver bangles on one of my first trips to San Francisco. They're beautifully handcrafted and came from a family member's gallery. These bangles give me a sense of identity, still, over 25 years later. I feel comfort and like myself when I put them on, connected to a happy memory, the person that passed who gifted them and to a city that I dearly love.
Don't discount the little things that make you feel good right now. They are deeply important.
Be well and safe!
Lots of Love and good vibes,
