The ocean touches our soul. Although not necessarily conscious of it, simply being near the water induces in us a sense of calm and awareness…listening to the familiar sound of waves upon the shore releases us from hectic lives and allows peace, if only for a time.
Representing the ebb and flow of the tide, the fluid contours of 18kt yellow gold mimic the ripples in the sand at water’s edge...the ocean’s footprint.
Massive glaciers, rivers and erosion turn enormities into minute grains of sand…just as forces beyond our control influence and affect our lives.
The shape of the nautilus speaks to our spiritual journey.
Spending its life in the depths of the ocean, lined in the splendid iridescence of mother-of-pearl, the nautilus grows into increasingly larger chambers throughout its existence; thus becoming a symbol of our personal growth and renewal.
Individually, we are mere drops; together, we are an ocean. We are all connected by the ties of our humanity.
