New York: Creative Retreat #1

New York Fashion Week 2020 - What a blast.  What an INTENSE blast!! I guess I always knew it was going to be pretty intense, but if I am honest, I didn't fully appreciate just how intense it would be.  So much growth in such a short period of time, well that takes some integration to get the full learning out of it.

New York Fashion Week - Stepping Out

Is it chicken that comes before the egg?  Or is it the other way around? I have been thinking just this very thing (well, not framed this exact way perhaps) in the last week or so.  New York Fashion Week is a pretty big deal, if we are going to be honest.  It was one thing to turn up with my jewellery doing all the talking, but an entirely different thing to be putting ME out there onto the world stage.

Archetypes - The Sage Collection

Archetype - the original pattern from which other things are cast, made or molded. The idea of seeking truth in a sea of lies (whether intentional or otherwise) has been at the heart of humanity since people first started questioning the world around them, seeking meaning and diving inside their minds and hearts for answers The Sage, as an archetype, is the epitome of the truth-seeker.  This archetype has a fundamental belief that the truth is the pathway to freedom, and more often than not such freedom comes with an inner journey of self reflection and enlightenment.  Those who identify...
