We are excited to feature local events, business, artisans and products in the Northern Virginia area over the coming months! This post is the first in the series highlighting Lucketts, Virginia! We look forward to sharing more about the communities, neighborhoods and offerings in each corner of Northern Virginia.
After the tragic loss of a dear friend, Lucketts, Virginia resident Laurien Dowdy was given the honor of designing jewelry with her friend's beloved Bermuda sea glass collection. Laurien created jewelry for family members with the actual sea glass but she wanted to also create a piece that would honor her friend's spirit while inspiring others to find THEIR authentic self.
A true labor of love, this piece was created using 3D imaging in the true organic shape of the sea glass. Encouraging its owners to wear the piece close to their hearts, the raised letters "i am" allow the wearer to focus on the strength already inside them on a regular basis. Not all jewelry is interactive, or becomes a part of one's daily routine, but we believe this Talula Bea Sea Glass jewelry DOES have a message and a purpose. Reminding us through our day that we ARE brave, strong, resilient, kind and more can have a positive impact on not only our lives but to those around us.
A portion of all "i am" pendants proceeds benefit suicide prevention. To learn more or to purchase, visit Laurien's Etsy shop. You can follow Laurien on Instagram for gorgeous and inspiring photos of her other works of art, including amazing farm animal paintings and more!
