copper & rose quartz

In addition to the acrylic flower pendant I introduced last time, I brought this little copper and rose quartz beauty home from Maui with me. When Erin first shared a few of her pieces with us, I immediately gravitated toward this piece and knew it belonged with me. I’ve worn it so many times recently […]

Loving kindness & positive energy (series)

I had the great fortune to meet a wonderful group of women (and one brave man!) recently, each one magnificently creative in their own right. Erin Paige Stegman designed and hand crafted the beautiful necklace I’m wearing in this photo. She creates this wearable art with love, kindness and positive energy – and I could absolutely feel it as soon as I put this on. So I’ll be sharing the experiences I have while wearing this and one other lovely piece from Erin’s collection… and you can join me in seeing what happens along the way.

On the day pictured here, I traveled from Maui to San Jose. A sour faced TSA officer thoroughly inspected my bag for contraband but smiled when she saw this piece. My flight arrived 30 minutes early, a friend picked me up, and our parking ended up being free. Just saying. I wore this again for my next day of travel, and I felt inclined to be friendly and open in ways that were unusual, even for me. On both flights I overheard people talking about having to sit apart form each other on the 2 and 5 hour flights and volunteered to switch seats without a second thought. It felt a little like being buoyed by an invisible kindness bubble. I had to smile, because I knew it was Erin’s energy that elevated me. I wore it again today, this time to work, and felt as though I were floating all day.

I’m looking forward to seeing what kind of adventures the love and passion in each of these pieces takes me on.
