be the change
be the change
In high school, I loved the quote, "be the change you want to see in the world." But as so many people referenced it and I began seeing it on the back of cars, it started to become background noise to me because I didn't want to admit that I thought it meant I had to save the world or cure cancer or at least become a doctor. I worried I'd failed at this simple thing I believed in when I didn't do any of those things.
But somewhere along the way, it's become a reminder to just keep being me and show up in my open-hearted, imperfect ways. I don't have to save anyone, but I can say, "There's a space right here beside me if you want to sit for awhile."
This necklace invites you to remember that just being you is changing the world every single day.
Created with a raw brass hammered square pendant, this necklace is hand stamped with the words "be the change." The pendant is 1 inch across and comes on a 32" chain.
Due to the handmade nature of this necklace, letter placement and patina of the pendant will vary. The texture is also hammered by hand and will vary. This necklace usually ships within one week of order placement unless ordered with another item with a longer turnaround time.
