My Dear Friends,
If you're anything like me, you may be feeling the onset of isolation fatigue. It's a real thing!! You may be feeling it because you're working from home and still balancing the demands of maintaining a household. Sherly, is really feeling it because it's been nearly six months since she's been able to see her family! While I'm so grateful to meet with family and friends for ZOOM, SKYPE and even for our weekly FACEBOOK live events, there's still no substitute for being about to "reach out and touch someone".
I've also noticed that I have begun to feel stressed and anxious. Asking myself, when will this be over? Will this ever be over? How will this be over? We've decided to make a very strong effort to not focus on what IS now, rather than focusing on WHAT WILL be....there's too much uncertainty!
If you know me, then you know that I very much believe in designing, "Jewelry with Meaning."
Since long before this pandemic moved into our lives, Spinner Rings have been (and continue to be) my absolute favorite category of jewelry to design. I sincerely believe in their meditative and calming values. The repetitive motion of the "worry-ring" is very valuable. I've found that in addition to the spinning motion, I try to take deep breaths to achieve a more calm state. When I designed my Spinner Ring with Five Sterling Silver Spinners, I had no idea how crucial and vital this ring would become to our collection.
While I know that there's no magical power to jewelry, I do believe that using the spinner ring and wearing items from our Karma collection give you permission to be to be more focused and present. In itself, these are calming values. Hopeful that you will find your center too.
