“Mythology is not a lie, mythology is poetry, it is metaphorical. It has been well said that mythology is the penultimate truth - penultimate because the ultimate cannot be put into words. It is beyond words."
― Joseph Campbell, The Power of Myth
Since the start of time, myths and stories have helped humans get in touch with our inner spirit.
Lapis lazuli has a vibrant history full of legends and lore. This rich blue gemstone was highly sought after by ancient peoples, and even adorned the sarcophagus of King Tut. Ancient elites would use powdered lapis as pigmented cosmetics. Some sources claim that most ancient and Biblical references to sapphires were actually talking about lapis lazuli. Lapis is said to protect the wearer from negative energy and increase intuition.
I felt this stone was perfect to use for a spring / summer collection: cool, calming tones and a refreshing royal aura.
The Mythos collection is here to remind you: you are in the process of writing your own story. You are creating your personal legend. You are the hero on her journey, traversing the peaks + valleys and coming out the other side to tell about it. You carry that spark that cannot be extinguished.
Happy spring, the story continues!
