Made in Baltimore by Become Spellbound. Words from Kari the maker:
"My goal is always to evoke the natural, unparalleled majesty we feel when gazing up at the stars: knowing we are all connected to everything that is.
The drive to work with crystals began as a child and has evolved over time. Taking a leap of faith in 2017, I left a successful career in the corporate world in Manhattan to begin creating full time. My process is highly intuitive and influenced by nature, science fiction, and fantasy. I drive to push boundaries and blur the lines between art and adornment.
I feel deeply connected to every piece I craft, mindfully hand selecting each stone and letting it guide the creation process based on its energy, aesthetic, and inherent wisdom."
The Sumerians believed that the spirit of their gods lived within the stone, while the ancient Egyptians saw it as a symbol of the night sky. Since the earliest of times, lapis lazuli has been associated with strength and courage, royalty and wisdom, intellect and truth.
