Women-owned businesses are a big part of my heart, so much of the space on this blog I'll devote to highlighting my favorite ones - who are making magic and making an impact on the world.
I want to place my money meaningfully, and into products made by companies I wish to support. Meet Bali-based Ananda Soul Creations, one of my favourite ethical and sustainable jewelry companies.
The above ring must be one of my favourite pieces from beautiful Christina’s line, Ananda Soul Creations. The Wise Wild & Free moonstone ring aids in inner growth, strengthens intuition and stabilizes emotions. Moonstone is known as a stone for new beginnings, success in love and business, and good fortune. It promotes inspiration and protects us, especially those of us who are very sensitive.
Following on my moonstone thread, I had to wear these gorgeous earrings – the gold vermeil Amarapura Earrings. Amarapura means ‘Paradise’ and goodness they remind me of whimsical days in Bali, where these creations are made.
All of Ananda Soul Creations’ products are ethical and sustainable jewelry and clothing. So what does that mean? It means local production in Bali with fair wages, it means sourcing standards on everything from the metals and gemstones used in the pieces (did you know there can be ethical concerns with purchasing crystals and gemstones – especially around the extraction and how people are treated in that process). Further Ananda Soul Creations focuses on recycled metals and giving back to mother’s living in poverty within Bali. Check out their whole ethical guide here.
The Tear of Joy ring is an aquamarine, which is a very powerful stone to stimulate psychic powers and increasing awareness. It enables us to create a link between our intuition to our conscious mind, becoming aware of psychic messages. I love these types of “gifts” too
