Gaya Earrings

{website :: Facebook :: Instagram :: Pinterest}

 To “adorn” is defined as “to make (someone or something) more attractive by adding something beautiful.” Here at the BSP, this is something we can stand behind 110%. Part of our entire mission is to celebrate the beauty in all of us and to honor it by enhancing it. The makers we find share this sentiment wholeheartedly and do not take our job lightly in presenting them to you. We feel it is a singularly humbling position we are in and we are so grateful to be in this position.

Lindsey Alonzo of LunaSol handcrafts amazing pieces of adornment in Portland, Oregon. Alonzo’s background in textiles led her to jewelry design almost by accident and her unintentional path led her to produce beautiful, one-of-a-kind pieces that honor the roots of our global world. Inspired by ancient Mexican, Native American, and African cultures, LunaSol is a wealth of strength, beauty, and purpose. The Dakoro Necklace is a personal favorite. But don’t let my heart sway you. Search through the LunaSol shop and see where you heart takes you.

    I suppose the most important thing I’ve learned about love is that it’s a lot more than attraction. You have to be a partner as well – through thick and thin.

    That loving someone is easy, but the relationship part is work.

    I was just reading this article from The Atlantic about being a Master of Love (as opposed to a Disaster). Man, it really got me thinking. Essentially, those who succeed in love are those who respond to their partner’s bids, which are comments or other small indications that they are looking to interact. So, if my husband, says, “Wow, look at that bird.” Instead of saying, “yes, dear” and continuing to look at my facebook feed, I actually look up and accept his invitation to intimacy and engage with him about the bird. I love this idea and I think it’s something I want to practice not only with my husband, but with my kids and my friends. I’m going to accept their “bids” for my attention and engage with them.

    My lessons have been, how shall I say, hard earned from my life, and not picked up from advice from others. (Rats!  I would have liked the advice!)  When my husband of 7 years left me with an infant, having yet another affair, the whole world crashed down around me.  Before then, I thought love all depended on me.  That through my own goodness, I could make any relationship work.  I’ve learned that there is a kind of love that kills, and yes, there are other things.  Some love is possessive, some love is vain.  Some love is insecure, some love seeks its own glory.    Maybe this sounds pessimistic, but I no longer take love for granted.  I no longer think it is the norm.  
    I’ve learned – for me at least – that love is a miracle and not to be taken for granted.

    “And still, after all this time, the Sun has never said to the Earth,
    “You owe me.”
    Look what happens with love like that.
    It lights up the sky.”

    The greatest love lesson I’ve learned is that not ever relationship is the same and not every guy is the same. Each relationship is beautiful, different, and unique. You can learn something different with each one.

    It is definitely a give and take. You can chase happiness but you’ll never attain it unless you and you mate are together and on the same page. Otherwise one of you is happy and the other is left out. My lesson learned is sharing the happiness and trying to be less selfish in love.

    Love is all that’s left after you take away everything that you don’t need.
