A Revival

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling and Celebratory Things

These are unprecedented, crazy, and trying times.  Of that there is  no doubt.  Here, in Grove City, we are under state mandated shutdown.  As I was scrolling through Facebook, a friend had posted this quote from Kitty O’Meara:

“And the people stayed home.  And read books, and listened, and rested, and exercised, and made art, and played games, and learned new ways of being, and were still.  And listened more deeply.  Some meditated, some prayed, some danced.  Some met their shadows.

And the people began to think differently.  And the people healed.  And, in the absence of people living in ignorant, dangerous, mindless, and heartless ways, the earth began to heal.

And when the danger passed, and the people joined together again, they grieved their losses, and made new choices, and dreamed new images, and created new ways to live and heal the earth fully, and they had been healed.”

These words settled into my soul like a prayer.  We will persevere.  And when we come back to work, and join together again with friends and loved ones, what a reunion that will be…  a revival like no other.  

There is no more fitting talisman for these days than the scarab beetle.  This ancient symbol, resembling the dung beetle, was revered by Egyptians.  This creature was drawn on walls and tombs, worn on necklaces and bracelets.  It is a symbol of immortality and resurrection…  transformation and protection. 

These Egyptian Revival earrings are made from a bright 18 karat yellow gold and feature a pair of scarab beetles, carved from a resplendent Lapis Lazuli.  This brilliant blue stone is speckled throughout with tiny flecks of gold.  Seated at the North, South, East, and Western tips are clusters of three rose cut diamonds.  Spreading out like the rays of the sun, these diamonds add sparkle and warmth to the earrings, priced at $2,650.00.

We look forward to the day when we will open the front doors and resume our normal lives again.  Until then, please continue to join us twice a week for the blog and each day on Facebook and Instagram.  We hope to provide a tiny distraction and a bit of joy.
