Hi, I'm Jacinthe, the creator behind this brand. My quest for answers has been a lifelong journey, one that continues to this day. When the potential of jewelry crossed my path, somewhere between Goa and Varanasi, I knew I had found something special.
I hold the belief that ornaments fulfill an undeniable role in providing protection, facilitating self-discovery, enabling transformation, promoting empowerment, and shaping identity. Over the past few years, my journey has involved in-depth exploration, collection, and jewelry design. Guided by the principles of animist cosmology, I've dedicated myself to unraveling and elucidating the intricate relationship between sacred empowerment, adornments, and the essence of human nature.
The art of creating and wearing jewelry is one of humanity's most ancient practices. In a life led with intention, jewelry becomes an integral part of ritual practice, serving as both a catalyst for transformation and remembrance. Certain meticulously charged jewels function as instruments of change within the bodies they adorn. Embracing animism through these sacred rituals offers us the opportunity to forge deeper connections with the world and heighten our awareness. My invitation to you is to embark on this profound journey of discovery.
The jewel channels ancestral power into the modern world. Its enduring nature transforms it into an artifact, a vessel, the tangible embodiment of the intangible. It establishes a link between the past and the present while shaping the future. In the great mystery of becoming who we truly are, the Art of ornament can become your humble companion.
Our collections are a chronicle of passion, craftsmanship, and the indomitable spirit of Rajasthan. It's a voyage of self-discovery, empowerment, and the celebration of traditions. Each piece possesses its own narrative, energy, and purpose. They transcend mere accessories; they serve as declarations of individuality.
Deeply rooted in mysticism, our creations carry with them dedication to daily ceremonies and ritual practices. They conjure symbols, shapes, and archetypes inspired by the sacred feminine, the elemental forces, animist cosmology, Hinduism, Buddhism, or even ancient Egyptian and Celtic mythology.
Our aim is for those who wear our creations to resonate with the virtues we impart: the wisdom of Mother Kālī, the unyielding strength of the Vajra, and the profound symbolism of growth, transformation, and grounding embodied by the serpent. The stories that accompany our jewelry are meant for anyone who believes in the power of intention and manifestation. Each sacred symbol carries its own emblematic and cultural narrative—a narrative to explore and honor with deep reverence. Every universal symbol extends an invitation to craft one's unique interpretation.
May our connection be forged through shared history, symbolism, and rituals.
We take great pride in our collaborations with two family businesses based in Rajasthan, India. These businesses have been dedicated to the art of jewelry craftsmanship for two to four generations! Currently experiencing remarkable growth, their vision is to contribute to the preservation and promotion of India's rich heritage and traditional craftsmanship.
What excites us even more is that Rajasthan is home to some of the world's most accomplished and skilled traditional artisan communities. We are deeply committed to ensuring that these ancient practices not only endure but also receive the recognition and reverence they truly deserve.
While handmade remains our primary preference, we've also introduced some cast-made designs to enhance specific functionalities. Given that most of our creations are crafted by hand, these cast-made pieces offer unique advantages in certain contexts.
By merging raw elegance with minimalist aesthetics, we aim to create new memories, in a coherent, strong, and sensitive union. We firmly believe that uniting this aesthetics with age-old wisdom holds the key to transcending the passage of time.
Our mission is grounded in a more thoughtful and conscious approach to consumption. We achieve this by curating jewelry collections that stand the test of time and by prioritizing sustainable, renewable, or even organic materials. Through our intentional and holistic practices, we put a halt to excessive production and mindless consumption.
Embracing a slower production schedule, our jewels are crafted in small batches—nothing is mass-produced. This approach serves as our response to the prevalent culture of excessive consumerism. Rather than chasing fleeting trends, we concentrate on styles that endure across the years. These are pieces meant to be cherished, preserved for a lifetime, and even passed down as cherished heirlooms.
We extend our gratitude to our dedicated team, and we are immensely grateful to all who have chosen to support small businesses like ours!
