Happy Equinox

This is it…today is the Equinox. Why should you care? Well…
The Equinox is all about balance - and who doesn’t need more of that in their life?! On this day the Northern and Southern hemispheres will experience the same amount of sunlight. This only happens twice a year at the Vernal and Autumnal Equinoxes - I’d say that’s pretty special, wouldn’t you?? Check out the image below from NASA - this is a time-lapse of the entire year. See when the line that separates day from night is straight up and down? Well, that’s today. 

If you’re a Northern hemisphere dweller (like me) this is a time of renewal and rebirth, the beginning of Spring. For those in the Southern hemisphere it is a time for going inward, the beginning of Autumn. Isn’t it incredible that half of us prepare for awakening and light as the other half prepares for slumber and darkness? A beautiful balance happening on a planetary scale - I just think that’s inspiring.

So, what does this have to do with jewelry? 
Frankly, everything! Jewelry is how we adorn ourselves, an outward clue as to what’s going on internally. When you wear something that connects you to others, the planet or a time of year it just plain feels right. Go ahead, try it!…and let me know if you agree or if you think I’m full of it.
