The older I get, the more I recognize the wisdom in dressing only for yourself. In developing a visual language that suits you and—and this is important—the life you really live. A well-made linen dress in a timeless cut can be both sensible and magical if, like me, you find yourself living in a sweltering city in the American south. What imbues a simple shift with its power, oftentimes, is you— and the days you shape together.
What does this have to do with HEALER? (I hope you may already have a hunch.) HEALER aspires to be both a source of inspiration and as a source of beautiful (sacred?) objects— A sculptural stone necklace that takes the aforementioned linen dress from everyday to extraordinary. A stunning handbag that elevates an entire look. A scent that reminds you of the best possible version of yourself when you dab it on in the morning— or refresh it right before going out at night. A little reassurance of your own power.
At the risk of over-dramatizing, yes— these are just objects. But these objects were crafted by hand by some tremendous and talented makers (many of them strong women themselves), and I believe that they imbue each piece with a little of their own power in the process. A blessing. We feel a bit changed when we put these pieces on— more steady, more sure. More mindful of our own power and strength.
That reassurance— that's what I hope you find in the pages of HEALER.
With love to all wise women,
P.S. I'd love for you to share your thoughts and experiences (regarding HEALER, regarding objects of beauty and use...) with me anytime. You can always reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
