this is the first set of earrings i ever created. it made its debut in the summer of 2010. only 99 were sold.
the back story is that i was newly divorced, with a one year old that i was still breast feeding and two young boys in need of their mama in the fullest way. in the midst of the whirlwind i cut my hair (which was down to my calves) off. i had the immediate desire to have some beautiful bold earrings and was patient that i would come across some, but the whole time i kept having this vision of what they looked like...i could see em so clear.
instead of going into the world and look for them i went inside myself and this was the gift that came forward.
these earrings represent so much to me about healing and wholeness and oneness and coming back to oneself. i’m so grateful to the friends and fam who purchased and supported this work. they were a deep form of healing for me. i took time to tend to every detail of each package, like love letters...and they kept me soft, grateful, joyful, when i needed it most.
