Ascending Butterfly's All Treats No Tricks Countdown to Halloween Giveaway Sponsored By:
I consider myself a person of Faith, and I derive a lot of inspiration from various religions, not just one. It's the different ways Faith is expressed in various religions that fascinate me. Fundamentally, the core of what we believe is the same, it's just the way the Faith is expressed and how that sometimes differs.
I've always loved the practice of Buddhism, there is something incredibly grounding and centering about it, the meditations, the beauty of the altars, many with beautiful flowers and lit incense that serve as an almost perfumed prayer to the heavens in and of themselves. When I look at Buddha's they represent peace to me. An inner peace that reminds us to be still, that change comes from within. It's about way more than 'Zen Decor' for me.
I've often worn jewelry throughout the years that served me as 'touchstones' of sorts, jewelry that when I wear it, I feel more calm or sometimes even more confident, and I have recently added a piece to my collection that I'd like to share more about.
NanoStyle’s contemporary jewelry collections present an exquisite range of onyx and cubic zirconia jewelry collections interconnecting faiths and beliefs through the power of adornment. NanoStyle pendants are made using a unique imprint technology with outstanding visual impact coupled with the flawless CZ stone to bring everlasting beauty to your expression of faith, belief or ideas.
There is literally something for everyone on your shopping list if you are looking into Holiday gift ideas (the holidays are certainly closer than you think!), and I know you are going to be tempted to pick up something for yourself too.
You didn't think I'd forget about you right? Who loves you butterfly?
