☆Jewelry That Transforms the Body and Soul☆

Right as Leo’s full moon energy beamed down upon us, we had a traumatic, unexpected experience which felt beautifully sad and yet transformative.
To be very vulnerable with you, a large portion of our nature-inspired, meaningful butterfly jewelry was stolen. Moreover, it was a situation that was, in hindsight, preventable.
Reflecting on the choices that were made which led to the theft of our delicate jewelry, there is much growth to be found. Like the butterfly drop earrings and pendant necklaces that were taken, inspiration and comfort have come in remembrance of the butterfly’s transformation process. It was no surprise that nature, per usual, had the answers.
The elegant, difficult, and slow process of a caterpillar’s transformation into a butterfly, mirrors the learning process we face as humans. Before the magical butterfly (which inspires much of our symbolic jewelry) moves through its many stages of change, it is just a small larva eating leaves, hanging upside down, molting, and building a cocoon.
These early stages are similar to how humans process experiences. We absorb them slowly, keeping what we feel will help us in the future and molting the aspects that don’t serve us. Both are physical and spiritual processes which result in profound, everlasting change and understanding.
The design process for our nature jewelry, wing drop earrings, and all gold plate jewelry is similar. The drafts and adaptations our designs must go through as they move through production, is a transformation with many steps.
Caterpillars notice the time for change has come and they stop eating to spin themselves into a cozy cocoon. Within this protective shell, the caterpillar’s body completely transforms, emerging as a winged butterfly that sips on nectar and sleeps in flowers. Our butterfly wing drop earrings are dainty earrings that reflect the ease of the butterfly as it discovers its new powers.
For us, the growth process was one of not only “don’t leave our meaningful jewelry in a car,” but also… trust your instincts. There was a moment before that choice was made that there was doubt - a sixth sense that spoke of caution. From this experience came a transformation in terms of knowledge, trust, and acceptance of vulnerabilities. It was unexpected, but propelled us forward like a butterfly through the air.

These precious moments of failure and accepting responsibility are filled with nuances and cosmic power. We spun our cocoon and found ourselves held by spirit, friends, family, love, and thankfully, homeowners insurance.
Our butterfly pedants, drop earrings, and silver and gold plate jewelry have been replaced. We grow stronger by the day.
Everyone has the ability to transform themselves through difficult moments in life, and we hope you do so with beautiful butterfly jewelry from Rael Cohen by your side. Wishing you a gorgeous month under Virgo’s watchful eye.
Follow the beauty way.
