Sterling Namaste Yoga Fairy Necklace

I am pleased to be offering these beautiful sterling silver yoga fairies to my ETSY shop collection. An ideal design for the 'yogini lovers' in your life.

Namaste (nahm-ah-stay): Greeting often heard in yoga classes. Roughly translated to honouring the light within you and me. When the light within you and me greet each other, we are one.
*Yoga term referenced from AOL health website.

A Simple 5/8” (17mm) in diameter sterling silver circular charm is lovingly hand stamped with the word ‘NAMASTE’ in my lower case fonts, the letters are oxidized to enhance the contrast, and finished with a quality polish. This custom charm is adorned with a unique sterling silver yoga fairy. The yoga fairy measures approximately 18mm x 15mm in size.

This elegant handcrafted jewelry with pure expression hangs gracefully against an 18 inch sterling silver ‘made in Italy’ double ball chain.

Om: The universal mantra; cosmic vibration of the universe; represents the four states of consciousness.

A Prelude To The Mamas

A prelude to all the classy & fabulous mamas out there...yup, even if you don't think you are one. Trust me, you are!

Recently, I was emailed a great story {from} that pretty much sums up "life of a mommy", and seeing that Mother's Day is just around the corner, I thought it would be fitting to share this article with all my mommy friends.

How much juggling can one mama do? You are not just the CEO of Laundry, Keeper of the Family Calendar, CFO of the Family Budget and Director of Hugs, Kisses and Cuddles but much, much more - and alas, most of it doesn't come with fancy titles. And so, for Mother's Day this year we wanted to let you know just a few of the things that we appreciate about mums (IE. you!):

You willingly stay up late with a sick child, but sometimes when your child wakes up crying in the night you pretend you don't hear them in hopes your better half with get up and go in to them.

Sometimes you feel undervalued and overtired. Okay, oftentimes.

You painstakingly cut up grapes for a snack so your child doesn't choke, but there are times that you don't have time or inclination to cut up grapes and just grab some crackers.

The choices you make - cloth or disposable diapers, breastfeed or bottle, Montessori or public school - are the right choices for your family.

Doing the laundry - again! - can make you feel like Sisyphus

Some days you can be a bit nicer to your kids than you feel, but not necessarily a lot nicer.

The days can seem very, very long while the years seem to fly by.

And what do we appreciate the most? The fact that, no matter how you feel in your darkest, most frustrated moments, you are doing a bang up job. So go ahead, trust your instincts, give yourself a pat on the back and lower your standards a little. Trust us, the bar will still be set incredibly high.

What is FA?

Fanconi Anemia (FA), first described in 1927 by a Swiss pediatrician Guido Fanconi, is the most common of the inherited anemias that lead to progressive, severe bone marrow failure, also known as aplastic anemia. The effects of the disease are devastating, leaving patients weak, prone to severe bleeding due to insufficient blood clotting and susceptible to infection. FA is a genetic disorder that occurs equally in males and females and is found in all ethnic groups. Though considered primarily a blood disease, it may affect all systems of the body. A Fanconi Anemia patient often, but not always, has other physical defects detectable at the time of birth ranging from minor to serious. Patients are also at an increased risk for developing leukemia and other cancers. Many children do not survive to adulthood.

How is FA diagnosed?

FA usually reveals itself when children are between the ages of 3 and 12, but in rare cases no symptoms are present until adulthood. Some babies are diagnosed at birth but some FA patients undoubtedly are never correctly diagnosed. The most common test to detect FA is called the Chromosome Breakage Test. The chromosomes in the cells of FA patients when studied in the lab, break and rearrange easily. Scientists do not yet understand the reason for this chromosome breakage, but can use it as a diagnostic test for the disease, if FA is suspected. This test involves just a blood sample from the patients where the stability of the chromosomes under the addition of destructive agents will indicate FA.

Share the love and support. Fanconi Canada is a registered charity that funds research in Canada into an effective treatment and, ultimately, a cure for Fanconi anemia and serves as a support network for affected Canadian families.
