Happy Earth Day!Earth is a huge inspiration when creating jewelry. The colors, textures, plants and animals that share our planet provide a continuous supply of imagery and beauty. By taking time to study the details that surround me, I find that the Earth activates my creative realm- a place where possibilities are endless, especially in jewelry.
This year I've decided to grow a vegetable garden to gain inspiration and life-balance through growing plants. With the help of my husband, I built two raised garden beds. I decided to paint them a vibrant purple, which is not only my favorite color, but also a color of healing and tranquility. I know my garden will help me discover new things about myself as well as rekindle my appreciation for the Earth. It will feel great to get my hands in the dirt and be invigorated by the beauty of growth.
Life has a way of wrapping up our minds which makes it easy to forget about living in the moment. Earth has a way of slowing things down, so we can take time to remember that we are actually alive. The Earth loves us, and it never stops giving. Every gemstone in every piece of jewelry you own originated from the Earth and vibrates with it's energy.
Our planet is taken for granted, easily neglected and most of the time just plain disregarded, but there is no way we could survive without it. How about we try making Earth a priority? With all the craziness of everyday work and errands, it's not practical to constantly think about protecting the Earth. However, we can at least make an effort to increase the time we spend loving the Earth, and in turn, loving life.
This Earth Day, make Earth your first priority. Plant something GREEN. Recycle everything you can. Give new life to something old so it can be reused. SLOW DOWN and take a moment to appreciate the beauty of a sunset, the smell of rain, the feeling of the sand between your toes, the detail in a simple leaf. Watch a colony of ants as they work together to accomplish an impossible task while leaving no "soldier" behind.
Our Earth is truly amazing and Earth Day is a celebration of it's glory.
Thank you, Earth. I am forever indebted to you and your endless beauty. I simply can't live without you!
