The purpose of life is a perpetual question that has intrigued mankind since the beginning of human existence. Without purpose, it’s easy to wander aimlessly through life instead of following your North Star. Without purpose, it’s easy to squander your time instead of waking each morning with an unquenchable thirst to attain your mission. Without purpose, it’s easy to achieve remarkable success and still feel that life is passing you by.
Success in life begins with purpose. When you achieve clarity, you’ll gain a new perspective on your life. When you find your purpose, you’ll feel good about who you are, what you stand for, and where you’re heading. When you discover your purpose, an inner peace will replace the need to seek approval from others. And friends and family will begin to sense a new you: someone who is happy, motivated and self-assured — a person with a mission. People will say that there’s something really special about you. And, they’ll be right! As Robert Byrne once said, “The purpose of life is a life of purpose.” It isn’t too late to start.

Each Inspire Me Necklace is handmade in my Vermont studio. Want to know how?
I begin with a sheet of heavy gauge pure copper. The discs are made and formed, and the hole for the cord is cut out. Following a dip in an acid bath (for cleaning) and a thorough rinsing, each piece is enameled with several coats of enamel (finely ground glass powder) front and back. Between coats of enamel they are fired in my kiln at 1450°.
After 3 coats the lettering is applied and the piece is fired one more time. Each piece is then inspected, and any excess glass is ground off from the sides of the piece before the final sanding.
The adjustable cord is made, then the piece is assembled, photographed, and placed into inventory.
