Finding Inspiration: The External Pursuits That Drive Harriet’s Creativity
At Oceano, we believe that jewelry is more than just an accessory. Each piece is a physical embodiment of life’s most inspiring elements, holding a special meaning and emotion behind its design.
Some of these elements are apparent within our collections. The ocean and all of its treasures may be our main sources of inspiration, but there are other things that help Harriet find the creativity she needs to come up with her designs. Sometimes, stepping away from the studio and doing something completely different is the best way for her to engage in the design process with a fresh perspective.
Below we’ll be sharing how Harriet’s external pursuits influence her designs, and why she wouldn’t have it any other way.
Finding Calm & Balance Through Yoga
To Harriet, yoga is an essential part of her routine that she cannot live without. She is an avid practitioner who even teaches her own classes four times a week via Zoom. Aside from helping her build a stronger connection between her mind and body, yoga helps her approach her work with serenity and purpose.
The sense of calm and balance that yoga brings helps Harriet as both a leader and a designer, as it provides her with the clarity she needs to stay centered amidst the demands of running a business and coming up with inventive new designs. Harriet values morning practices in particular, as they allow her to mentally prepare for the day ahead while opening her mind to new ideas.
Connecting With The Zen Of The Ocean With Scuba Diving
Scuba diving is another passion of Harriet's that helps her find inspiration for her designs. By fully immersing herself in the depths of the ocean, she’s able to cultivate a zen connection with the underwater world.
The peace that she finds in the waters have become a significant source of inspiration for her, from the colors and textures of the ocean to the behaviors of its inhabitants. Each dive fuels her creativity, giving her the ability to create unique and breathtaking designs that capture the essence of the ocean.
Why Taking A Step Back Is Beneficial
Harriet's external endeavors remind us that inspiration can come from unexpected sources, both in our personal and professional lives. It's important to take a step back and reflect on what truly motivates and drives us. By doing so, we can tap into our inner fire and unlock our creativity.
The Jewelry Piece That Supports Harriet’s Artistry
Harriet never parts with one special item, whether she is working on her designs or exploring the depths of the ocean. The versatile Ile Ronde necklace, adorned with a lustrous Tahitian pearl, rests gently against her Throat Chakra, promoting effective communication and enabling her to express herself freely.
Harriet knows these qualities are essential components for creativity and effective leadership, since the throat chakra is associated with truth and self-expression. By wearing the Ile Ronde necklace close to this energy center, Harriet is able to channel the energy of the throat chakra, enabling her to express herself with authenticity and ease.
We hope that by sharing Harriet's creative process with you, we've provided you with inspiration for your own life, whether it's finding balance in your work or pursuing a passion that speaks to your soul.
