Around the beginning of 2021 I found myself increasingly drawn to the grid pattern.
Maybe it was the fun and funky ways it was popping up in the creative world… but it felt deeper than that, almost primal, and I had to know why.
How long have humans been making them? Why are we drawn to them aesthetically and heavily lean on them as a way to organize just about anything?
After digging in, it turns out they’ve been around since our ancient ancestors had been laying out their village huts. Not only does it allow us to organize the chaos around us, but it also creates a balance and symmetry that calms us.
That was it. The calming part.
Jewelry as a tool for calming has been a concept I’ve played with for years but after this last one it went from curious interest to desperate need.
In this case, the tool is more of an aesthetic reminder of knowing what works for you. For me, it’s simplicity and order that have always given my monkey mind a sense of peace and harmony.
Made by hand in our south Louisiana studio.
Each piece varies slightly due to its handmade nature.
Also available at our Baton Rouge, Louisiana location.
