Handmade from recycled red pine, these pieces were made as vessels for intentions based on the four elements for a uniquely flavoured container. The point of them, as intentional containers, is to carry a little bit of magic to assist you through your day, an event or help you through a challenge. You, being the creator and the holder of your own power, make it a practice of choosing your own adventure around mental hurdles or just wanting to feel good and manifest your full potential.

The four elements are the cornerstones of creation itself. They are the principles of being, they are part of the macrocosm and the microcosm and so are part of us. Each pendant represents an elemental group, Air, Earth, Fire, Water – which form the basis of where your intentions may lie for the particular adventure you are embarking on or reason for wearing a piece.
