Equinox Orbit Bracelet 2016
The Autumnal Equinox is a date when the earth receives equal parts of light and dark when the sun is directly above the Equator. We enter a time of increasing dark hours each day moving toward the Winter Solstice. I celebrate this seasonal change as an opportunity to embrace the coming darkness with equanimity and positive possibilities.
Jane wanted a custom designed Orbit Bracelet and after inheriting her late mother’s dramatic pear shaped diamond ring and other pieces that were not her style she suggested selling them for credit toward the project. As we started to move forward I sensed her hesitation in selling the large diamond. Her mother had loved the diamond, but Jane had always thought that it looked harsh. When she asked me if I could transform the energy of the diamond into the orbit bracelet in a way that would feel beautiful and honor her mother, we both recognized an opportunity to embrace this powerful maternal symbol. I then selected gems as companions to soften the pointy shape of the diamond and attune it to the gentle, brilliant painter/gardener/outdoor enthusiast that Jane is.
In Jane’s own words, “I absolutely love, love, love this. Each stone is amazing – and I’m thrilled that my mother’s diamond will be included and celebrated. The entire bracelet radiates light and warmth, happiness, a tribute.” Jane T. Portland, OR.
