introducing: amulets

 

for many, autumn is about settling down in a quiet place to reflect on personal achievements, how we’ve grown over the year, the legacy we’ve left behind and the histories we continue to build for ourselves.

it’s the perfect time of year to introduce our new ancient amulets collection. this collection draws inspiration from the endurance of the human spirit, as told through the talismans and tokens we have used for millennia to tell our stories and mark the history of the human spirit.

each of the handmade gold pieces in our ancient amulets collection was carefully designed to honour changes in life, hard won achievements, new opportunities, and as a way to celebrate your unique self.

ancient inspiration: notes from our designer

for millennia people have used jewelry to pass on knowledge, wisdom, and strength which defines our humanity and allows us to become the unique souls we are. this is the inspiration behind this collection, and we spoke with our designer to gain more insight into how these precious pieces came into being.

what was the initial sentiment behind the ancient amulets collection?

we wanted to create talismans to carry with us through our lifetime and individual journey. they honour our personal histories as well as act as tiny reminders of the strength and possibility we have inside each of us.

what was the design process like?

we were so excited to incorporate original source research into this collection. every texture, finish, and gemstone we have in the collection was inspired by ancient architecture and art objects that we engaged with during the planning phases of the collection.

where did you research and pull inspiration?

we looked at museum catalogues and archives to contextualize and historicize the broken coins, objet d’art, and ancient jewelry we were studying. there were some particular jewelry pieces at the metropolitan museum of art that were sources of great inspiration and ended up being the seeds from which the collection grew.

if you had to pick a favourite, what would it be?

any of the boundless pegasus pieces (necklace, bracelet, ear crawler). they represent endless possibilities and the sentiment “only when we ground our fears are our intentions able to take flight”, which i love along with their statement look. but I also have the rebirth scarab ring on the top of my ring stack and it reminds me of constant change and rebirth in life, so I love that piece too.

what do you want people to feel when they’re wearing these pieces?

that they are holding something special with meaning close to their hearts. that they are connected to their own personal history and life lessons as well as humanity and that they are holding a piece that will tell a story for generations to come.

autumn is a time to revisit old and familiar things that connect us with who we are: whether that be sitting in front of the hearth of a well-worn fireplace, or coming together to cook old family recipes on thanksgiving. there are so many ways we tell our human stories, yet jewelry is one of the most enduring. we hope you find connection with this special collection and that these handmade amulets and talismans inspire you to find your own unique voice within the rich tapestry of love and bravery written across history.
