You are who you say you are...Who are you? This famous question stumped Alice when the smoking caterpillar posed it to her from his mushroom. This question of identity is sure to cause a brief hesitation for each one of us. We re-frame who we say we are with every choice that we make.
When you buy KETTI KUPPER Conscious Life Jewelry™ you are setting your own personal intention towards heart awareness, positive energy, and life affirmation. While the question, “Who are you?” does not lend itself to easy answers; it’s exciting to realize that we are individually and collectively a fascinating and enigmatic form of high art.
To help people access their personal vision of their greater-self continually throughout the day with beautiful reminders worn next to the body.
Early in 2012… Ketti had a desire to wear a piece of jewelry capable of instantly shifting thinking. A work of art… that could help make our life a work of art. We wanted an attractive, conscience-shifting reminder that can be worn and touched throughout the day.
Ketti and daughters and researched, planned, and started sculpting the pendants.
Each piece was sculpted several times over in wax before arriving at its final form. They were then cast again in resin to have a hard material for fine-tuning. At that point the design goes to the foundry to have a manufacturing mold made from the hard resin cast.
Here are some design layout concepts for a couple of necklaces. Our goal was to express an asymmetric layout with over-lapping Aspen leaves and interesting intervals of negative space. The Marjoram couplet design began with two actual leaves from the plant looking very dainty.
Raised in Los Angeles, Ketti returned to her childhood town after years of living and working in cities from the Bay Area to the East Coast. Today, she draws on her multifaceted artistic background and a sensitivity to nature to create inspired settings for living, extraordinary designs and engaging works of art.
