Infused in the white bead is water from Mount Everest, the highest point on earth. In the black bead, mud from the Dead Sea, the lowest point on earth. Separating the two beads are clear beads, representative of the story we all have to tell. Life moves through cycles, find your balance.
“Sometimes you’re on top of the world, stay humble. Sometimes you’ve hit a low, stay hopeful.”
One of these beautiful little Lokai bracelets arrived through the post last week. They are intended to act as a reminder to stay balanced in your everyday life (perhaps a little bit of a placebo effect), which can be easier said than done.
Each element has meaning:
The white bead - Contains water from Mt Everest, the highest point on Earth (from sea level). The reminder: Sometimes you’re on a high note in your life, stay humble.
The black bead - Contains mud from the Dead Sea, the lowest point on Earth. The reminder: Sometimes you’ve hit a low, stay hopeful.
The clear beads - In perfect balance on either side, signify that the path for every human life is different.
It’s a shame that silly celebrities tend to wear these with a lack of understanding, but I’d say they’re a lovely reminder of any positive steps you wish to take in the coming year. :)
