The ‘Circles of Life’ story
The idea for the Circles of Life rings as rings with words to mark times in our life, first came about in 2006, the year my son was born and the year I created ‘Vortex’, a large immersive sculpture as part of the 2006 Sculpture by the Sea, Bondi.
My partner in life and work made me a memento from the sculpture from an offcut piece of metal tube engraved with Vortex 2006. I wore the piece as a pendant, and loved how it was a simple reminder as well as an elegant piece of jewellery.
Inspired by the idea of this ring marking the journey of life I offered to make similar pieces for friends. Due to various issues the idea kept not happening, but Circles of Life remained on my to do list until the idea was revived and realised in 2016.
Over the past two years I have been honing my thoughts, developing my website and slowly building this concept, product and vision.
In June 2018 I commenced a yearlong mentoring and support program through the New Enterprise Incentive Scheme (NEIS). I am stretching my comfort zone as I begin to market and sell this product through my new business, words | circles | life.
