The state of Whimsical. When I met Sasha in 2016, it was clear that she was no ordinary woman. There was some magical essence, a light in her eyes. Whimsy’s Jewels is a reflection of that. It showcases the uniqueness and individuality of the women it adorns.
We all know Sasha is whimsical, but what about us. Where do we have the magic, the light, and the individuality? Me, I’m a business mind with an artists’ heart. In the business world, I find that state of Whimsy is often missed. One way I integrate that magic back into my life is through wearing handmade necklaces and earrings that reflect it.
So why am I a "Whimsy" woman?
It all started when I began working for my entrepreneurial mother. She was a powerhouse, 5 kids and her own business, and she loved it. Through her example, my passion for small business began. At the same time, I was gaining an artistic flair. I was acting in plays, singing, and learning how to make newsletters look pretty. I felt alive on the stage or grooving with musicians, it brought a spark to my day to day.
At first, I wasn’t sure what box I fit in. Just like Sasha, I felt nothing quite suited me. For her, it was finding jewelry that reflected her individual taste, for me it was trying to find my place in the world and workforce.
Whimsy’s Jewels reflects in a lot of ways my own journey. I realize that I can be unique, be me, and show that off to the world. The way these pieces connect with me is invigorating, and you can sense the entrepreneurship and creativity behind them. Here’s a breakdown of a few of my favorite pieces I use to reflect my own individuality:
These are my everyday workhorses. In a variety of colours, they match with literally everything. I’m a mermaid at heart, the ocean feels the most at-home to me if I’m honest. Not that sitting at a desk isn’t fun too…
A quirky lil’ fox! I relate to foxes, not only for my red hair, but for their cleverness and cunning (and cuteness…). This necklace puts a prance in my step without question. I love original artwork too! This piece was illustrated by a local artist and converted into wearable art to show off. Being able to reflect an original piece like this is right up my alley.
The Crystal is my go-to glam. The Druzy adds an elegance to jeans, dresses,, everything. And it makes my eyes pop!
My eyes light up with music, theater, and good movie. One of those movies is Breakfast at Tiffany’s, and the classic appeal of that film is something I love to reflect in what I wear (hellooooooo!)
My name is Karis, I have an entrepreneurial mind, I am a musician, a lover of theater and I am a Whimsy Woman.
