I've been designing jewelry for over 10 years now, and it has been really interesting to see which products rise and fall in and out of popularity. Long before I started Fashletics, and even before I started CrossFit, I made myself what I now refer to as a "Pep Talk Charm". I had just moved, my family was going through a tough time, and I missed my old life.
But guess what, nobody wants to attend a pity party. I took out my frustration on a piece of metal, whacked the heck out of it with a hammer, inscribed it with the word STRENGTH, and hung it on my key chain.
Many years later the charm is still there, more worn and more full of meaning than ever. I designed a version of the STRENGTH charm for Fashletics, and based on its popularity I can only assume that this word means as much to my customers as it does to me. It is a daily reminder of where we've been and what we are capable of.
In moments of doubt we look at this word for inspiration, and in moments of victory we look at it in celebration. It has a thousand different meanings and I know that each STRENGTH charm that leaves our studio will be a part of someone's unique story.
I am proud to "wear my strength", and especially proud that so many others are wearing it with me.
