“Symbols are powerful because they are visible signs of invisible realities.”
More than jewellery, Thousand Fibres is a collection of meaningful modern heirlooms, multicolour talismans. To provide their owners with comfort, courage and connection.
As a child, comfort-thumbed red threads often snaked around my wrist. Hand-tied by my mother -
They were secret, silken talismans for the moments we were apart.
Second-skin reminders of our connection.
It was only when I came to be without them - without her - that I realised just how significant and symbolic those strands really were.
Not only did they weave between us, but those simple, ruby-red strands also crossed continents and cultures, languages and religions - held tight (for centuries) as amulets for love, protection, courage and connection.
Having discovered a forgotten-about tangle of the threads, and with an idea to turn them into something more permanent (that I could draw comfort from), my husband - and co-founder - reimagined them around a love-worn pendant.
It was this piece (the mini full circle necklace) that, after repeated interest, became the bittersweet blueprint for our current thread-bound collection.
