Life & Geometrics

ofina-jewelry
July is the month of my birthday and in this month I feel the most in my element. This is the month where I’m unstoppable and that anything I want to do is possible with the right drive and determination. As a Leo and fire sign in the zodiac, it only comes natural to feel at home in some spotlight. Aside from that, there’s also something very special about summer. The sun’s out, our bodies are warmer, inspiration is felt all over, and all doubts go away.

The July birthstone is ruby, and gold is one of the colours that also best represent the Leo — that definitely explains why I’m so draw to anything gold! Gold speaks in many volumes and can be effortlessly worn dressed up or down. I’m pretty proud of myself for expanding my jewelry collection, since as a teenager and very early in my adulthood I only really wore plastic black bracelets or ball chain necklaces. And my days as a scene kid were experimental, as I went ahead and gauged my ear piercings to a size 0 (almost went 00). Although I didn’t go too big, my earlobes haven’t exactly been the same prior to gauging, and for a long time I was very self-conscious about them not looking the way they use to. I’ve come to realize it’s not that bad, and whatever I’ve done in the past was apart of who I was and still am. It’s really just a fun memory of the crazy things I’ve done in the past, and a reminder to never give up that spontaneous youthful side of myself.

SEEING CIRCLES & SQUARES

There’s something special about geometric jewelry that’s very clean and minimalistic. Ofina Jewelry let me pick out a few of their pieces, and their wide geometric collection made it very difficult to choose only one favourite. I never knew I was so drawn to the shape of the circle until now. It’s such a simple shape, perhaps boring to some, but the symbolic meanings behind it is much bigger — for it represents wholeness, original perfection, the infinite and eternity. It’s probably a bit weird to speak so highly and deeply about a shape, but the idea of something being endless like a circle is hopeful and illuminative.

Ofina Jewelry also let me in on one of their soon to be released geometric ear threads. They will be available for purchase in both circle and square shapes. If you haven’t noticed by now I’m a hoops kinda girl and thought I should switch things up for a change, so I chose the square ear threads. I know I’ve been really taking it back with this post, but I can’t help but feel a sense of nostalgia with these earrings. One of the first pieces of jewelry I received for my birthday were a pair of gold ear thread earrings from one of my aunts. My mom always let me wear them on special occasions to make me feel like a glamorous adult.

    Beautiful post Stacey, both the pictures as well as the writing! 🙂 I share the same love for gold as well and it’s so true that it can be dressed up or down. These dainty pieces look gorgeous on you, with the circle necklace (I have a similar one!) as well as the hanging square shaped earrings being my favourite <3 xo

      You’re such a doll Akshita! For the longest time I wanted a circle ring so this was amazing to be gifted! I think gold just also looks amazing on our skin tones! When I wear silver I feel like it washes me out a bit (probably in my head lol)
