This is the Art of People
My emotions are majestic mountain peaks, colorful forests, in lush.
Unconditional love in expansion mirror inner harmony.
My emotions are the space in between,
Jewellery treasures whispering joy unto the beautiful battle within.
These landscapes are an overflowing fullness of transformation infusing every layer of my life.
In my jewellery, there is no such thing as scarcity or lack.
All of this gift in my jewellery are examples of true abundance.
The Jewellery objects are the artefacts of my buried emotions and shelter them secure in time and space for all to see. They whisper a sometimes-difficult life journey and the many trials that must be faced and overcome.
As I courageously reveal my emotions unto visible jewellery, the underlying truth shelter within unfolds: They are part of me holding a timeless quality, gifting me with a profound sense of acceptance as my past and future unify in the present, in the now.
I start to disentangle the bubbling emotion drawing freely on a paper, guide me to its shape,
Wherein in the body it lives, what materials, colors want to embody, how it wants to take space inside and out, a necklace, a ring, or a pair of earrings.
