GODDESS Goddess jewellery symbolizes a woman's higher nature and beauty. There is strength, ingenuity, love and many other good features in each one of us. We are and can be successful and happy. Let’s wake the Goddess inside of us! Inspiration. When referring to Latvian mythology, we can find a Goddess (Mother) for almost everything or phenomenon of nature. (Goddess of winds, Goddess of the Seas, Goddess of the Forest, etc). The Goddess guarded, gave advice, guided us to the right path and was even harsh when it was needed. It is essential for women nowadays to support and inspire each other daughter, mother, friend, colleague, cousin, grandmother etc. We can be the Goddess for ourselves or part of the inspiration for others. The necklaces and bracelets have two pendants: goddess and animals or birds. On left side of pendant is written meaning of goddess


MOTIONS For a thousand years, the Baltic Sea pebbles have witnessed both calm water strokes and dizzying wave carousels, whose footprints have made them into one the most symbolic organic elements. As the time passes, rough rocks become amazingly elegant. From day to day, throughout the seasons, they remind that each change, no matter how hard, makes us grow stronger and more complete. The deep shades of grey and black sea pebbles are saturated with the ability to survive even the most terrifying of storms. The new silver ring collection is made out of these witnesses of the past, which will remind their owners that the struggles will pass and that they might even be a blessing. Such a ring will give strength to persevere and see the beauty in even the hardest parts of life. Because just like in the sea, also in your life the time will come when the seemingly infinite wave dances will turn into peacefully sunny scenery. Until then, though, the ring will bring patience and peace of mind for you and your beloved ones.


GEO FEELIINGS Geographic coordinates are displayed using longitude and latitude in order to pinpoint an exact location on Earth. Each location has a number of meanings, feelings and memories associated with it. Send your specific coordinates if you already know them, or send the location name or address and we will find the precise coordinates for you. Coordinates will be engraved on personalized jewellery, with your choice of the meaning or the name of the place engraved on the opposite side of the pendant.


ANGEL’S SIGNATURE Everyone needs a guardian angel to believe in; an angel, who can inspire, bring love and strength. The angel will remind that each of us is unique in our own way, and will encourage to move on and overcome fear. Each of us can find a guardian angel, who will be along your side every day. In addition, gifting the angel jewelry to your friends will be a wonderful way to show care and support. On the jewels the four angels are depicted in a very simple manner by symbols known as sigils, which can be described as angels’ signatures. For centuries such sigils have been created on a mathematical grid, associated with the seven planets, as well as the connection between numbers and letters. In such a way, each of the stylized and modern angel symbols represents the angel’s characteristics and mission. Put on the jewelry and let your guardian angel bring even more love, inspiration and protection in your and your beloved ones’ lives!

The love fruit tomato will be a sign for others and the higher forces that you are open and ready for a new relationship. Cabbage, you are happily together, and your relationship is a source of joy and stability.


RUNES Since antiquity, people have used various attributes and signs to predict future and change the course of their lives. Runes are one the most antique signs, which were derived from the runic alphabet. Historical evidence suggest that runes have been used also by tribes which inhabited Latvia. The runic alphabet consists of 24 runes. Runes work as talismans, serving you as long as needed. The old talismans should be given to the elements of nature- thrown in the water, burnt in fire or buried underground. In order for for runes to work in your favor, you need to believe in their power, you have to be ready to experience revelations and your intentions have to sincere. Once you have a goal, and you approach the rune with dignity, it will do miracles for you!


EGYPTIAN HIEROGLYPHS Egyptian hieroglyphic alphabet is one of the most ancient writing systems. To this day these symbols carry powerful meanings and a somewhat mystical/magical feel. The symbols are stylized, simplistic, but also very descriptive. You can choose between the ancient powerful Egyptian symbols to protect, inspire and bring you prosperity. Moreover, pick any of the alphabet hieroglyphs to make personalized jewelry for yourself of your beloved ones. While the meaning may remain a secret to the rest of the world, you can be sure the ancient Egyptian signs will bring you very special charm, strength and protection.
