"Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them humanity cannot survive." -Dalai Lama
I've been asked for years if I make anything with hearts in my collection and the answer has always been no until now.
I had planned to launch these necklaces earlier in the year but there were shipping delays to get the stones so they're here now.
I chose 6 stones for this sweet collection. If these are popular I'll try to source more of these stones.
Love can be a pain point for so many of us whether it comes from our families, our partnerships, and/or our friendships. But if we think about love a little differently than we have been taught throughout our lives we can experience moments of love each and every day many times a day.
Rather than a mere label on a relationship, Love is a health-nurturing, life-enhancing, positive emotion. As an emotion, love stirs us and transforms us anytime we experience shared positivity, big or small, with one other or many others. Whenever we experience a moment of “positivity resonance”, what some scientists call love, we tap into the most powerful reservoir we have within us.
Positivity resonance really can change the game for how we move through the world every single day. For me I was introduced to the science of this through Buddhism as a teenager, looking at it through a lens of loving kindness. Even if meditation isn't for you, the science of positivity resonance can be.
Meditation for me is not about the practice of sitting in silence, it's about the changes this practice creates in my day to day life. These changes somehow turned my creativity to creating this tiny hearts collection. I personally used to think of hearts as kind of cheesy, but now I love the idea of a wearable reminder to pause and notice the moments of connection/love we can create every day.
My intention behind each necklace is that if you choose to wear one of these necklaces you will feel more love for yourself, this world and all living things.
"Life without love is like a tree without blossoms or fruit." -Khalil Gibran
