  • the story

Inner Strength

Sometimes all we need is a calming word to warm our hearts, soothe our psyches, and remind us to put all of our troubles in perspective.

Designed by Kathy Bransfield, the simple, 22K gold-plated brass oval beautifully frames Ralph Waldo Emerson's fortifying phrase:

What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters, compared to what lies within us.

Handmade in Southern California.

Kathy Bransfield

Kathy Bransfield grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio, where she spent her childhood climbing trees before starting an art career standing in front of the TV and painting alongside legendary television artist Bob Ross. After graduating from The School for Creative and Performing Arts, she began traveling and selling her own handcrafted jewelry.

She creates meaningful jewelry out of both gold and sterling silver, each a reflection of her complex character, revealing an organic sentiment and creating a modern day heirloom.

"For over 25 years, I have looked to beautiful and powerful words to strengthen me or heal me. And for even longer I have looked to nature to do the same. I think within the jewelry there is a lovely balance of the two merging into one.

        I bought this for my daughter's 26th birthday. She has used this quote for years at the end of her emails so it was especially meaningful. She LOVED it and I have to say that when she put it on I was jealous not to have one for myself! It will make a great conversation piece. I'm sure it will be something she will wear and treasure for many years to come.

            Purchased as a THANK YOU to a hospice nurse who had taken such good care of our mother. Excellent quality, very good craftsmanship, beautiful including the chain. Couldn't have asked for more. Very impressed with this purchase.

                  I have not removed this necklace since it arrived. It is just as I'd hoped it would be. Simple, yet sturdy. It goes with my work clothes (scrubs) as well as my casual daily wear. I have received lots of compliments and I admit that I enjoy passing on the lovely quote that is imprinted on it. I am very happy with this purchase.

                  Pretty necklace to wear with casual outfits. It's a little long so have to
                  plan shirts around the length
