The Outlook Series
You can’t always control the situations you end up in or the negativities you encounter, but you can control how you choose to respond and react to them. We won’t be remembered by the number in our bank accounts or a number of collegiate degrees in our picture frames. We are not the number of holiday cards we receive or the number of miles we run in a week. We are memories and stories. We are smile-lines and crow’s feet. Our outlook on life shouldn’t be defined by quantitative values that others can see and judge, but by the times we had the chance to give up and we chose instead to get out of bed. Each bead on your bracelet in the “Outlook Series” is a compilation of stories and moments, good and bad. The times when you wanted to give up. Times when you proved to yourself that life is beautiful and that you are alive. The elasticity of the band symbolizes your ability to adjust, adapt, grow, and change. Wear these bracelets to remind yourself that you are in control of how you handle every situation life throws at you, no matter how stressful or malignant it may be. A change in your outlook could change everything.
Apatite is said to increase our appetite for life; it inspires and motivates. When confusion clouds our true perception of self, it’s like a fog rolling in, blocking our vision. Apatite helps to clear away the fog because it reminds us that what’s ahead and what’s behind are of little consequence. It’s the energy that lies within that holds the key to our happiness.

Gemstone Care 101:
- Store jewelry in separate spaces to eliminate scratching and damage to stones.
- Temperature should be kept constant to prevent cracking.
- Keep out of sunlight to avoid fading or discoloration.
- Do not wear around chemicals, during activities such as cleaning, swimming or showering. Gemstones can be porous and may absorb chemicals, even soap, which can build up inside the stone leaving the jewelry looking dull.
- Additionally, be aware that the chemicals in cosmetics, hairspray, and/or perfume can damage gems.
- The ultimate rule: when in doubt, leave it out. Think twice before putting gems in an ultrasonic cleaner or any chemical solution.
Gems should be gently wiped clean with a moist cloth.
A silver polishing cloth can be used to brighten the metal.
