What are you excited about right now?
I’m really excited about a collab I’m doing right now with the artist Lazaros, @a.s.t.r.a.l.o.r.a.c.l.e.s. We have created an oracle ring together, we suggest to wear them on the left pinky finger which is a frequency field as discovered by Lazaros in relation to the presence of all dimensions.
There are many more pieces in the works all aligned with different types of magic.
What inspired you to do the work you do today?

Through exploration of the self and spirituality I have learned healing tools and knowledge to help guide others spiritually, creatively, and intuitively. 6 years ago I discovered Kundalini yoga and started to heal myself.
My first teacher lived really far so I would go to these 5 hour Sat Nam Rasayan workshops just to learn from her but ended up with a healing tool, eventually I did my reiki training and began to infuse all of this energy into my jewelry pieces.
When I had my son, Max Aero, I started to really change my diet (even though i have been some version of vegan to pescatarian since I was 11, then ended up at an attachment parenting waldorf school where I was inspired by all the mamas and nature.
From there I started doing women’s work and with all these modalities combined I think I found a way to bridge this world of spirituality with the practical world that makes it accessible for almost anyone.
What's your major challenge right now and what are you doing to overcome it?
Being a full time mom and figuring out how to make enough time to work on my brand. I used to make everything by hand but recently I’ve outsourced production and it has gifted me with so much more time.
I also have so many people surrounding me that help me with Max and with my brand. I feel like every child comes with so many angels to help you and I see this so often in my brand and also my family.
What's one daily ritual you are practising right now?
I’ve started really trying to form a consistent routine with taking my morning supplements everyday. At the start of the week I put them in little mason jars for each day to make it way easier.
I do the 5 tibetan rites daily and attempt to start my day with celery juice.
How can the community support you right now?
I always value feedback and would love to be guided on what people would like more from me.
What is your dharma in 2 words.
