My Dear Friends,
Happy Holidays from Israel!
Israel is a Source of Multi-Cultural Experiences
Israel is a wonderful source of multi-cultural experiences. During the holiday season, on a drive through the country, you may see a Christmas tree in one window and a candelabra for Chanukah (called a menorah) at the next. It’s also winter, which means it’s the middle of the rainy season in Israel. For a desert country, a wet rainy winter forecasts abundant spring crops and flowing rivers. But the winter season also offers a sense of rest and tranquility as we tend to spend time sheltered from the elements.
As an observer of the world around me, I look to nature as I continue to innovate and create the beautiful look of Paz Creations. Watching the swirling winds and the undulating rain, as it falls in the river, sparks visions of movement that served to help inspire me to fashion some of our signature pieces – spinner rings.
When designing spinner rings, I think of colors: yellow, silver and pink. I think of accents: floral motifs and lace. And then I wonder, can I merge these together? Can the intricacy of the lace be seamlessly accented by finely detailed scrolling flowers? Yes, and they will produce beauty! More spinners, the better…..and I make sure when I think spinner rings, I make sure that they are high quality and smoothly and easily around the core.
The Innovation of Spinner Rings
In addition to the ring’s inherent beauty is a culture and history behind the development of “spinner rings.” Most likely conceived in Tibet, spinner rings were traditionally worn to help sooth the wearers’ worries. But I believe that the Spinner Ring has a some additional uses too. For those who find fidgeting helps their concentration, spinning the outer core is an effective fidget method. I have discovered that spinning the outer rings serves as a positive distraction, and the repetitive motion is calming. I even read a study that suggests that a spinner ring can help reduce anxiety! Tibetan beliefs suggest that spinning the ring increases good karma while ridding the wearer of negative energy. Adding these facets to our ring, you will find that the Lace Spinner is not only stunning, but spinning the ring can be habit forming too!
Creating is a labor of Love
Creating a ring is a labor of love. The steps began about a year ago, with the seeds of an idea. Followed by drawings, images and then a prototype that lead to the manufacture and production of such a magnificent ring. Once you are the proud owner of a spinner ring, you will enjoy wearing it!
Wishing our family and friends a Happy New Year! May 2017 bring you joy, happiness, health and tranquility!
