Her sunburst design on the wristlet started out with a spiral in the center with rays beaming out from it.  Many cultures believe that the sun is a cosmic power. Sunbursts are also said to be symbolic of the Self, which shines outwardly to others. That’s a positive thing to carry as a reminder, wouldn’t you say?

The coordinating earrings have a double spiral joined in the center which can suggest balance. Spirals are abundant in nature and can symbolize the path leading from external awareness to enlightenment. Additional positive reminders for the wearer 😉

NEWS! Kristy will be instructing a workshop through Henna or No? on April 23, 2016 (at Crabtree Gardens Earth Day Weekend) merging the art of Menhdi (attendees will be using actual henna paste as one of the drawing mediums) with coding through symbolism, creating their own personalized, life-vision scroll called “Asbe Kaetana“. We are over the moon with this idea and are looking forward to the workshop.
