The fall equinox has arrived, and so has my latest collection, Kairos. Just like the arrival of autumn reminds us of the rhythmic march of time (chronos), the Greek word kairos refers to a special moment of opportunity. That perfect moment rolls around and you can say or do the perfect thing, when the energy shifts and you can feel the electric moment of potential.
The equinox is somewhat of an opportunity as well – it marks a transitional point in time. Here in the northern hemisphere, summer is ending, and autumn is beginning. Day and night are completely equal, and there’s a moment of balance. We’re reflecting on the past, as well as looking forward to what the future has in store.
I adore equinoxes (I try to release my collections in conjunction with them). This season, the concepts of chronos vs kairos were especially fascinating to me, and have been my main source of inspiration as I’ve worked on the collection. The hoops are not only flattering (what’s better than hoop earrings!), but symbolic of cycles and wholeness.
Handmade in my Flagstaff studio, this collection is made with recycled sterling silver, pearls, green onyx, and ancient bronze.
My long pearl necklace with a hand-pressed silver hoop can be worn short or long. Pair it with a simple blouse and jeans or dress up an evening outfit.
The hoop earrings in my Kairos collection add a flash of silver and are dripping with lovely faceted green onyx accents. The rich jewel tones will be perfect as we enter the cooler months.
Making this collection was such a great experience, and I’m excited to share it with you. On this equinox, I’m grateful for all 2018 has brought and looking forward to what’s to come!
Cheers to fall, and here’s hoping you seize the kairos moments in your life.
