Tiffany Technique Jewelry
KeepSisus are made with a technique I learned from some Czechs and Slovaks jewelers, called Tiffany’s Soft Soldering, with a few modifications. In addition, they are supported by a variety of natural quartz, such as Amethyst, Citrine and natural quartz, as well as many different types of stones in a variety of colors. Both quartz and stones are in harmony with the people who have them, fulfilling the function of receiving, storing and releasing energies. Each stone and quartz have their own quality and property to transmute and accumulate energy and release it at the exact moment when it’s needed, I like to think that they are living beings at the service of humanity, sharing their brilliance and wisdom.
Those who know me, know that I’ve been always creating things and that they have a special meaning for those who wear them.
All my life I have enjoyed a lot creating things, abut the last couple of years I stopped doing it, trapped in my daily routine. And one of those hidden gifts that the quarantine brought with it, was the awake of my desire to start to create with my hands again.
I’ve always had a special connection with stones and gems, and I love having some hanging around my neck, especially quartz, the more rustic the better !! Do not ask me what each quartz is for or what healing properties has, because I don’t put my mind on that, I just feel it with my heart and I know what it will bring to my life as part of the accompaniment.
I “received” the information a couple of weeks ago, of the importance of connecting with some object. because the chaotic times we now live in, and the constant depressions that make us question our life here on earth, make us lose that valuable “internal strength” that helps us cope with the difficult processes that are presenting us in our daily lives . So I put my heart and feelings in motion, to create some small containers, that KEEP THAT INNER FORCE and connect us to it when it is necessary, to fill us with courage and strength to get ahead, they are pendants that have a little jar, called “KEEPSISU “.
KEEP, means “to maintain” and SISU -Etymologically it comes from a Finnish root that means “interior” or “within”, it is a word that represents the idea that in each one of us there is more force than is seen with the naked eye.
It is a potential that we all share and that can have a powerful impact on our daily lives. Sisu is embodied by people from all over the world who challenge themselves and cling to hope when at first there seems to be none.
KeepSisu, in its main idea, is a small container, where you will keep the purest desires of your heart, which will become your “INTERNAL FORCE” to create a better life, where you will keep alive that feeling of value, love towards yourself, credibility, hope and trust, knowing that everything will be fine and you will be able to move forward despite any obstacle that comes your way … and everything that strengthens, clarity and great consistency in your daily life.
At the bottom of the Keepsisu design, it has a small glass bottle that can be opened and closed, and it is where you will send all that “feeling” of happiness, abundance, clarity … when your whole being trembles with emotion, feeling warmth in your soul, in those moments where you feel that life has a meaning and you are filled with happiness … it is when you must send that “beautiful sensation” to your Keepsisu, the bottle will keep within it the purest desires of your Being so that they are not lost, and you can access them when you are desperate, without finding answers, depressed, mired in doubt and daily complications, that is when you must OPEN the bottle of your KEEPSISU and fill yourself with all that “pure feeling” created by you and for you.
The overall design is in the shape of a kerosene lamp, whose main function is to “give light in the dark” … and in short, that is the idea of the Keepsisu.
Important: It is not necessary to physically OPEN the bottle to save that special energy, you just have to “feel” it and send it from your heart, with the confidence that it will be there when you need it.
