I first became aware of Becoming jewelry when I went to the store to help the girls I babysat for pick out a piece of jewelry for their mother for Mother’s Day, and I instantly fell in love. I always try to shop local, and the unique and inspiring jewelry spoke to me immediately.

When I moved to South Florida from Kennebunk a little over three years ago, I wanted to bring a piece of Maine with me that I could forever cherish and be reminded that, although quite the distance away, Kennebunk would always hold a special place in my heart.

Moving to South Florida was a choice I made to be able start a new chapter of my life—going through a divorce and returning to my true self, someone I had lost for sometime.

Through self-care practices, meditation, and yoga I’ve learned to recognize how important our breath is. Something that I took for granted for far too long. I selected a piece of jewelry with the word "breathe" engraved on it as a reminder that no matter what I face, as long as I come back to my breath, everything will work out just as it should.

Today, I am living my best life in the SoFlo sun and breathing in the salty air, beyond grateful for each and every breath.
