Balancing Mind, Body & Spirit

I've always loved to wear jewelry. I like simple yet inspiring and meaningful pieces. I also like to meditate, to know that I am aligned in mind, body and spirit. As a Holistic Stress Reduction instructor I am also inspired by the strength and healing powers of gemstones towards our meridians and Chakras. So, it came to me...create a bracelet with a focal bead and surround it with gemstones that share a connection and intention!

I started by creating bracelets for myself. I chose the bracelet I would wear based on the intention I set for the day. My intention might be Healing, Empowerment, Energy or Insight, just to name a few, and I chose a bracelet representing that intention. Throughout the day, when I felt distracted or out of sorts, I would touch my bracelet. I touched the focal bead, reminded myself to breathe and return to the present moment. I would repeat my intention a few times and move on, feeling grounded and aligned. Wow, a beautiful, unique bracelet that also had intention and meaning. Family and friends loved my bracelets. In fact, I received so much encouragement from family and friends that I decided to open a shop and sell my bracelets. My business EQUANIMOUS was born!

But, why a business named EQUANIMOUS? The meaning of EQUANIMOUS is calmness of mind or temper, composed. This is what I seek, a sense of calm and tranquility; that is what I hope wearer's of my pieces will feel.

Working with gemstones, feeling their energy, is a very meditative process to me. I find the creative process to be very spiritual.

All of my pieces are handcrafted and unique. No two pieces are exactly alike. Finding the right gemstones to compliment and create a connection with the focal bead is crucial. Once this is done, I set the intention, the mantra or the affirmation for the piece based on the inter-relationship of the gems and beads. And then write a brief mindful meditation for the bracelet, a list suggested mantras for the malas or affirmations for the strands.
