"My jewellery creations aren't just for beauty's sake. They are beautiful, but the intention behind their birth is to be a power piece to bring out the empowered fierce femme in the women who wear them. To help women tap into their inner strength warrior goddess nature. To remind women of their connection to the earth below their feet and the mysteries of the universe. These energies have our backs and more than anything want to work with us for healing and uplifting." Jennifer Wilds
The original inspiration behind Soulshine Rising Jewels was antique beads and pendants gifted to me by my grandmother, Frances Switzer, who had her own jewellery line, Frances Switzer Originals. My grandmother traveled with my grandfather, William Switzer, who is an interior designer and collector of antique furniture. My grandmother collected buttons, antique beads and unique pendants to create her collection. I have had the joy and privilege to honor my grandmother by creating my own jewellery collection with my unique style. I continue to collect new treasures locally and on my travels. I feel blessed to continue my grandmother's legacy in my own way, and I feel deeply that what I do in my life elevates and heals all the women of my lineage, most of whom did not have the opportunities that I have. What I share with the world through art, yoga or any other means are my Soul gifts. It is my tiny piece of the Universal puzzle.
