Learning how to balance every part of ourselves - worthy parts - can be tricky. Whether it’s parenting and career, faith and culture, or maybe we even have more than one beautiful heritage. “Nânapo” means ‘both of them’. You don’t have to choose. You are both at the same time.
Each half of the earring is a mirror image of the other. This was deliberate because every aspect of us IS who we are. And every side compliments the other.
I chose a small gold bead to be a focal point to symbolize the Creator. We are each created with many sides, and these sides are a gift from the Creator. So embrace both!
