Around the beginning of 2021, I found myself increasingly drawn to the grid pattern.
Maybe it was the fun and funky ways it was popping up in the creative world... but it felt deeper than that, almost primal, and I had to know why.
How long have humans been making them? Why are we drawn to them aesthetically and why do we heavily lean on them as a way to organize just about anything?
After digging in, it turns out grids have been around since our ancient ancestors laid out their village huts. Not only does a grid allow us to organize the chaos around us, but it also creates a balance and symmetry that calms us.
That was it. The calming part.
Jewelry as a tool for calming has been a concept I’ve played with for years. But after this last year, it went from curious interest to desperate need.
In this case, the tool is more of an aesthetic reminder of knowing what works for you. For me, it’s simplicity and order that have always given my monkey mind a sense of peace and harmony.
