Maire Dodd Earrings: Love & Hope
I love the shop tag line for Maire Dodd -- "jewelry to feed your creative spirit." It is so subtle but powerful for me. How many of us creatives actually take the time away from making beautiful things to actually let someone else nourish our creative spirits with an adornment?
Well, I suppose we treat ourselves to pretty baubles that inspire and make us feel more special, but it took me a moment to realize that I don't often consciously say to myself, "this object is feeding my creative spirit." It changes the energy completely, don't you think?
In the midst of a bustling December where I was spinning out of control, I was blessed with a beautiful moment of unexpected peace when I received these wonderful Twist and Turns earrings from my friend, and jewelry designer Mary Jane Dodd shop owner of Maire Dodd.
Mary Jane helped pick out Twists and Turns for me and when I opened them up, I knew they were the right pair of earrings. These earrings are a perfect balance between refined and rustic. The funky little turquoise glass beads say "I want have fun" while the hand stamped words "love" and "hope" let people know that I'm all about what's happening on the inside.
My favorite part of these earrings is the awkward way each of the wires is twisted and turning. THIS IS SO ME! I'm not sure how Mary Jane picked up on this aspect of my personality, but my life could be summed up with the phrase, "Beth is gradually learning to accept and appreciate her awkwardness."
I was instantly nourished! I hope you let your spirit be fed by something unique and find a piece of yourself in Maire Dodd's shop :)
