Throughout my travels, I've met so many kind-hearted people, especially women. Unfortunately, I have discovered one very discouraging thing: women lack so much confidence. I yet have to meet a woman that is comfortable in her own skin. In ALL my meet-ups, and this might sound like an exaggeration, I have NOT met a single woman that loved herself. If you know me on a personal level, you know I’m pretty confident and I love to encourage my friends to pursue their craziest aspirations. But meet-up, after meet-up, I keep meeting women full of doubts, and baseless fears, and just plain self-hatred, and I feel like I must do something about this issue.
I am very proud of my Mexican indigenous heritage. My great grandfather was from the Otomi region and spoke the Otomi dialect. This group of people were known to be Aztec warriors so I know I come from a lineage of warrior women and men. It’s in my blood.
And this exactly why I created the 13 Heavens Collection. The Aztecs believed in a heaven and an underworld. There were thirteen levels of heaven and nine of the underworld. The Aztecs believed that where you went after death depended upon what you did on earth and how you died. The eastern paradise, the “house of the sun” was the home of the souls of warriors who were killed in combat.
The earrings from this collection are bold, for the woman that has a fire in her so powerful that not even the deepest and darkest ocean would tame it. These earrings are for ones who are ready to devour their fears and their doubts like a true warrior. With these earrings, you better believe you will turn heads, you WILL be seen, and when they see you, chin up, pop your chest, and demand your deepest desires. I hope when you wear a pair from the 13 Heavens Collection, you walk confidently to the direction of your wildest dreams and you become the most formidable woman you've ever known.
I make earrings for the warrior woman.
