We could all do with a little more peace, clarity, inspiration and protection these days. That’s why more of us are seeking out mindful jewellery, which takes inspiration from ancient cultures, folklore, crystals and symbols.
“My customers tell me that wearing their jewellery helps with their self-confidence. It energises them and reminds them to take action,” says Flora Chan of Flo Jewellery. “The jewellery is a tool to help you look within, to see what you want to do with your life,” she adds.
This sentiment is echoed by designer Gosia Orlowska, whose line of mindful jewellery is purified with sage for even more positive vibes. “Our most popular requests have been pieces made to strengthen and open the heart chakra, which controls love and inner peace,” she says.
