What is most meaningful to you?
“Being a mom is probably one of the most meaningful things in my life.”
Elena: The most meaningful moment in my life would probably be... more of a few moments. I don't know if I have just one meaningful moment, but becoming a mother has been one of the most meaningful experiences of my life.
It's not necessarily right when my children were born–it was an accumulation of moments of meeting them. It's getting to know them overtime. Those have been the most meaningful times for me.
“The thing that I value the most is family. Family is the thing that I think gets you through the toughest times.”
Obviously 'family' can mean different things for different people. Your very close circle of friends that see you through the darkest of times. Those are the people that I try to remember not to take for granted.
“Happiness might not come right away and it may not be revealed at the start of what you are doing but by pursuing and sticking with something, it can bring joy. Joy can be found in hard work and patience.”
We started Silent Opus to create more soulful connections because we believe the jewelry we wear is much more than an accessory. It’s a vessel to communicate what’s most meaningful to us — beyond words.
