BEJEWELED: ELIXIR VITAE

 

The magical thing about an elixir of life is its transformative quality – injecting you with the confidence and spirit to fully come into yourself. As creative thinkers, artists and entrepreneurs building our fashion platform in a tech oriented world, daily life comes with many unpredictable challenges and emotional ups and downs. We are often searching for meaningful amulets of personal inspiration to keep us going no matter what is thrown our way – symbols that are more personal and internal then the ever-changing clothes we wear.  Recently we discovered the wonderful world Dualitas – a local Palo Alto based jewelry store designer offering timeless, modern pieces infused with ancient mythology and sacred geometry designed to empower and inspire the wearer.
True personal companions, our Elixir Vitae pieces are go-to daily talismanic staples, contagiously ushering us into an inspirational world governed by nature, the stars and our inner sense of purpose.  Inspired by Vedic astrology and ancient gemological healing practices, each piece is designed with natural gemstones to be in direct contact with the skin. Whether we are working on a project in our art studio or directing a photoshoot, our Elixir Vitae rings and cuffs remind us to remain in touch with our inner intuition and authenticity.

Valentina was drawn to the Elixir collection and its ability to adapt to many of her looks. Wearing it daily as part of a dressed-down casual outfit felt just as natural and comfortable as wearing the pieces at night, when going for a more refined, elegant look. There is a particular ease with the Elixir collection that fits Valentina’s love of nature and harmony. The Enthusiasm Blue Chalcedony Ring was Valentina’s favorite, which she loved wearing alone, as well as mixing it with many of the other Dualitas gems. Wearing jewelry has always been an important daily ritual and pleasure for Valentina.   She is constantly on the hunt for innovative new pieces to incorporate into her eclectic style – the Elixir collection was one of those great finds.

If you can’t tell from her dramatic poses, Francesca is a natural actress and lover of drama and intrigue.  She brings this passion for life to her work and is constantly coming up with new ideas and marching to the beat of her inner energizer bunny.  Because of her inner intensity, she was especially drawn to the calming essence of the Peach Moonstone Cuff and Ring.  Francesca has always felt a deep connection to the feminine and mysterious qualities of the Moon, and often goes on midnight runs through Stanford Campus basking in the Moonlight night air.  The gorgeous iridescent peach Moonstone is a gentle reminder to Francesca to breathe, quiet her racing mind, and embrace patience!
