The Red Thread of Destiny
This month I am thrilled to introduce you to my new mini-collection. This collection is very very special to me and really, it’s been a good 20 years in the making! The legend of the Red Thread of Destiny originates in East Asia, most commonly linked with China. It tells the story of twin souls destined to be together throughout the ages – irrespective of time or distance – and linked forever by a thin (sometimes invisible) red thread. This thread can be twisted, tangled and even stretched. But it can never, ever be broken.
I have been blessed to experience the Red Thread, and you can read more about my personal connection on the blog HERE
The collection speaks about destined souls but it also speaks about another powerful and undeniable connection – the connection we have with our beautiful Mother Earth. In Maori art and culture, the colour red symbolises Papatuanuku, the Mighty Mother. We are all connected to her, and the red thread links us all!

Let Go to Let Grow, to Let Flow
This year has seen me really looking to be in a state of flow and my mantra has been “let go to let grow”. And part of that means that it’s time to do a bit of a clear-out. I have decided to retire some of my designs from my collections. Some of these will be temporary, but some will be permanent. What this means for you is that you are going to be able to snap up these designs for a steal, but it’s a one-time offer and with limited quantities.

So, we finished the very first 100Days of Beauty Challenge on May 9th.
And we are doing it all over again, starting on June 3rd.
100 Days of Beauty is all about enccouraging us to see the beauty in a world where we are bombarded with images and messages of how broken and hopeless things are. When we come from a space and place of broken-ness and hopelessness things aren’t going to get much better. As the Lorax said “Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, Nothing is going to get better. It’s not”
So each day, for 100 consecutive days, we are posting a single image of beauty and sharing it in my dedicated Facebook Group. Why? Well, I believe that when we see beauty outside of us, in the world that we live in, we are much more inclined to do something to preserve that beauty, enhance that beauty, protect that beauty.
But there is a bigger message here too – when you see the beauty around you, you start to organically and naturally see the beauty in the people around you too! Oh, it’s your friends and family, then that random person who said hi and smiled, to the children playing at the beach. Everyone has beauty in them. AND THEN…yes, there is more…you start to see the beauty in YOURSELF. Yes, and when that happens, magic is made! You see, saving the planet means saving ourselves. If we don’t believe we are worth of being saved, or saving ourselves, then we will get what we have always got…nothing changes.
So come along, join us on our second 100 Days of Beauty Challenge
