"It's our intention. Our intention is everything. Nothing happens on this planet without it. Not one single thing has ever been accomplished without intention." - Jim Carrey
What Is The 'Intentions' Collection About?
Intentions are basically creations made with a specific intention held in our thoughts during the designing & creative process. Think of 'Intentions' like a GPS for a car. By setting your destination on the GPS, it takes you through the fastest route in order to get to the destination; same goes to the stones. By intentionally setting 'Intentions', you are pointing your crystals at a particular purpose or goal to have it manifest in your life quicker than usual. However the magic of this collection doesn't stop here.
Have you ever felt that a restaurant could never achieve the same feeling that your mum's cooking gave you? Have you ever wondered why? It's basically the energy exchange that happens which comes from the person that is handling your meal. If a chef is angry, or in it for money, you could taste the difference in the food vs someone who is in it because she/he loves seeing the face of others light up when they've tasted their food. It's the transfer of emotion and thought that goes into every transaction in life. This is not a philosophy. It is actually science and physics.
To the both of us, the process of creating is probably our highest from; it’s when we’re at our very best. As crystal handlers and designers, there is nothing more important to our trade than the state of our mind & emotions; the unity that exist between these two energies; the seed of all creation. It is in those states that CG and I experience the divine; letting the forces that surrounds us to guide our thoughts and hands into creating inspiring work.
To us, designing isn’t about skills or tactics; instead it’s about knowing how to connect with the creation through deep intuition and allowing each bead to choose its place on the design. Skills, tactics and designing knowledge are little steps that we use to ‘trust the process’ in connecting us back with the piece whenever we find ourselves in a situation of disconnect. It’s a strategy similar to writing, drawing, music, film making or any form of art; it’s about repetition and doing something over and over again until we find that big “AHA” moment.
If you’ve ever seen us go about a piece in circles, or taking the time to create something, chances are, it’s one of those times where we felt unhappy with the creation and was using the process to find the connection with the piece again. With every thread that we weave and every stone we bead, a part of us goes into the creation; giving it a soul; a life. That's why our state of mind, intention and emotions are vital in making a piece the best it can possibly be.
