◒ HOLDEN minimalist connection necklace

The hand is the most frequently symbolized part of the human body. According to Aristotle, the hand is the "tool of tools”. It holding meaning of skill and power, action and purpose, and for us makers, also creation and invention.

In general it is a symbol of strength, power and protection. However, on the other hand, it gives blessing in acts of giving and receiving, and is associated with generosity, devotion, sincerity and stability; "lend a hand".

As an extension of ourselves, the hand represents our utter humanness and our connection to one another, something we have all lost for the better part of a year in these Covid times. It offers a form of communication and self expression in a way that words cannot. In motherhood, these hands lend themselves hours of holding, nurturing, protecting and dare I say, cleaning.

I am grateful for these hands. I may have not been good to them but they have served me so well over the years. From Visual Merchandiser, to Artist and then Fashion Designer to now Jewelry Maker, they have become my favorite and most valuable tools.

This beautiful, meaningful hand necklace makes a great gift for your best friend, a wife, a mother or as a sweet reminder and gift to yourself.
