Zenmundi Designs – the process
Zenmundi Designs are created by artisans who love to work with materials of natural earthy origins. Everyone who wears a Zenmundi Designed creation knows they are getting a natural stone adornment. The jewelry here is worthy of the mindful and enlightened individual you are. Headed up by lead designer Gwynstone, jewelry for the woman who craves the connected feeling of wearing natural gemstones is offered here to browse and enjoy.
Before creating Zenmundi Designs, frazzled as a busy working mom, wife, sister and daughter life found me trying to stay centered. Then one day my career contentment started to crash, who could not believe it could happen so quickly? What to do? … turn to friends for support and search for other things to fill the creative void being felt. One friend shared her technique of working with glass beads to make necklaces. Soon after, my desires found the beauty and power of working with natural stones. The satisfaction of working in this way was strong for me. Contentment sprang from feeling the cool smoothness of wearing natural stones I marveled at the peace this could bring to my everyday world.
There was concern that taking time out of my life to create the calming designs that took over my mind might take away from my family (it did not bother me to take it away from my time at work!).
But I began to see and feel the joy and calm my designs brought to my family and friends when I gave them as gifts. I breathed in the knowledge that the creations blended beautifully with the personality and style of the receiver. I began to feel a weight being lifted from me upon every gift.
I decided I set out to create the most calming, beautiful, wondrous designs out of stone. Jewelry with stones that were luminous and elegant enough to wear professionally. Zenmundi Designs has continued to create statement jewelry for the busy woman who wants to look great but also feel connected to the world and stay grounded while wowing them all at the board meeting.
It turns out, the road was more difficult than I imagined.
The path to balance
Finding the path to balance was not always easy, for months designs and my beautiful natural stones had to call from me from their secret tucked away places in the studio as it was covered with the school newsletters, to do lists, and everyday paper clutter that screamed to be attended to.
Fighting to carve out time to create, it was possible to at least wear my creation to work to keep the creative flow and feel the power of the natural beauty provided by the earth.
When my career improved, and I was more satisfied and successful I considered forgetting about ZenMundi Designs and fulfilling my own creative needs to work with the stones. After leaving the gallery where my items were found, I felt my studio would simply fill with all my designs that would never find their way out into the world for others to see and wear. But leaving my creativity and love of the feel of natural stones was no longer an option.
Through it all, and with help from fellow creatives who have joined me on this journey, we released our first Zenmundi Design products and the response has been enlightening. Come with me to experience the balance and calmness natural stones can bring and select one of our creations or work with me to design the jewelry for you or one you love that will feel smooth and cool to enliven your senses and keep balance as you make your journey.
