Snakes conserve to survive. They stay low, engaged. They're almost Stoic - patient, never rushing. Not fidgety and scared as the mammals. They're even willing to sacrifice parts of their body to survive. And they leave the skin of who they used to be behind, as a reminder for everyone that the brittle and smaller self isn't a part of them anymore.
So as your feet touch the cool bedroom floor in the morning, leave the skin of your old self behind. Walk into your day strong, focused, and ready to keep sacrificing for living the life you want to lead. As the person you want to turn into. Day by day. Layer by layer. Skin by skin.
In her latest collaboration — this time with the tattoo artist Jonatan Palm — IAMELENI has created a collection of snake-inspired jewelry, as an homage to the unending, worthwhile struggle to stay true to your path.
