In the beginning…
In this part of my blog I’m going to be using this section to give you the stories behind my female characters that represent The Earth Faeries. I have three new characters that I’m currently designing and going to have drawn up and made into my own silicone moulds so that I can make jewellery for adults and children out of them. And because everyone likes a good faerie story even us adults, I thought that I’d take you on our journey into this mythical realm. You’ll discover where The Earth Faeries get their ideas from for their designs and the adventures they have a long the way. You’ll also learn all about the facts of these timeless beautiful gems, what their made of and where they are found.
My Earth Faeries Characters
The first character that is being drawn at the moment is Ruby star light and she is the keeper of all the red gems and red quartz crystals. The second character is crystal moon water. Her favorite stones are diamonds and crystal clear quartz. And my third character is Onyx and she is the keeper of white & black onyx. She even has her own pet Onyx called Loomie who glows white when it’s dark and flies but more on all of this in future blogs. Plus a beautiful blue faerie that is the most powerful of them all but I’m still developing her character so more on her in later chapters. These little helpers make up my team!
So where did I get my name The Earth Faeries from?
Well being a child of a mum who would often read me and her foster children faerie stories and take us all on walks through the woods hunting for them it seems inevitable I would grow up with a passion for them.
My mum used to say that there is a faerie in all of us. Meaning that the magic to change our life lays within with our thoughts and feelings. Three months ago when I first decided to set up my new jewellery venture and I was searching for a name to call it by, I knew that I wanted something that would be as magical and mesmerizing as my jewellery. In that it would make the women who wear it feel gorgeous, feminine and empowered. But how could I find the right name that would reflect me…my brand?
A brain storming session it was then..
I contacted a couple of my face book friends to see if they could help me pool some ideas. There was a lot of beautiful names that were given to me but whilst it ignited my creative flair they weren’t exactly what I had in mind. It was only when I was given a plaque from my mum (now hung on my bedroom door) titled ‘a faerie lives in every girls heart’ that it really struck a chord with me. It reminded me of my mums wise words and I seen it as a sign from the universe that I was on the right track.
I knew that I wanted to design mesmerizing jewellery for adults and children. I agreed there and then that the faeries where still very much in adults hearts too ( meaning that we are all magical in our own ways) so I wanted to choose a name that would reflect this very powerful message. I’m very much into doing my bit for the earth too so I wanted my company to be eco friendly. I wanted something that would reflect that in the name too and so The Earth Faeries were born.
