I've been on a spiritual journey for the past year, looking for inspiration and guidance from meditation and healers. When I discovered Brittney Borjeson and her line of jewelry, A Thousand Prayers, I felt I had discovered a true kindred spirit and instantly knew that I had to meet her. Lucky for me, Borjeson, who resides in Sayulita, Mexico happened to be in Brooklyn recently and I was able to see firsthand her stunning collection of handcrafted beaded adornments.
I refer to them as adornments because they are synonymous with prayer and meant to symbolize friendship and protection; they can be worn as traditional jewelry or draped on a hook or mirror to infuse a room with spiritual guidance. Though designed by Borjeson, each piece is handwoven by women of the Huichol tribe of Nayarit, Mexico during traditional shamanic medicine ceremonies. Each of the hundreds of beads are infused with a sacred thought. Wearing it with this intent will bring it's true potential to light.
