I am inspired by the power of the mind, and the beauty of nature. The metal I work with is strong, yet pliable, radiant and bright; however, can tarnish and lackluster when not cared for properly. The metal is not that different than us. Our days are busy and layered with commitments. It's easy to drown in the tasks and demands set upon us each day. I'm about effortless, everyday beauty that can help ground me as I travel my daily path. I like unique, simple yet functional accessories. Carry Your Message jewelry is my day-to-day "Calgon take me away" moment reminding me to breathe, appreciate and take in this moment for nothing lasts forever. I can be strong, confident and beautiful, no matter what comes my way.
While working as a wellness coach, clients struggled to remember goals we set in place. I remembered the jewelry I made as a teenager. "What if I made a few necklaces to help my clients?" The jewelry was a hit & helpful too! It was at this point I shifted gears from Wellness Coach to jewelry designer and Carry Your Message ® was born.
Carry Your Message ® jewelry was originally created out of a personal need when I was teenager seeking to make life changes. As a result of my unhealthy lifestyle, I had a hard time remembering to make healthy choices. My negative thoughts ran rampant. The necklaces I made held a secret message holder. The holder allowed me to tuck affirmations & meaningful words for close keeping. Throughout the day I was reminded of my new intentions and the excitement I felt as I wrote my message each morning. The necklace I wore and the message it held, anchored me throughout my day.
Fast forward, 25+ years. I am working in a corporate career. It was somewhere around 2007 when internal rumblings began as a result of extended trips to Ecuador. I found myself out of my usual corporate routine & now aware of life. I knew something in my life had to change. I began seeking & researching. I remembered my teenage journey and the jewelry I use to make. My life included a healthy lifestyle & living in a state of well-being. It was at this point I found wellness couching as a new profession.I became a certified wellness coach in 2010. The universe provided me an opportunity to begin again in 2009. While it was frightening, it was also exhilarating as I was connecting and discovering a more profound, happier and mindful me.
