You never move through live without experiencing things that completely break you down. Once you find your heart in a million little pieces it is time to mend and repair. Healing takes time and a lot of effort, and quite often small reminders and talismans will help us through the dark days.
Jewelry is one of those objects that strongly connects us to a person or a moment. You can hold and cherish it and maybe even pass it on with a story that will last for generations.
I hope the Mend my Heart Locket will bring comfort when you pick up the broken pieces and pull yourself together again.
Peridot is a gift from the heart of mother nature. Its spirit is light and up-lifting and it is also known as the stone of compassion. This green treasure is great for balancing emotions!
THE OTHER MOTHER
I essentially grew up with three mothers. My mom and my two grandmothers. A Spanish one from my father’s side and an Indonesian one from my mother’s side. I experienced an explosion of culture, stories, soul food and unwavering love. They created an idyllic universe which felt safe and comforting. One that was always there when we faced the storms of life together.
I recently lost my last living grandmother and during this grieving process I decided to create a collection inspired by my memories of them as ‘the other mothers’. Each piece tells a small part of my story, with a sprinkle of Coraline* aesthetic. The designs are meant to hold on to memories and give comfort.
Little mending kits for broken hearts, precious stones to dry your tears but most importantly something to remind you of a warm and loving place.
