“Well-behaved women rarely make history.”
This is my favourite quote of all time, six words, sewn together. When read inspire me to believe that anything is possible, I can accomplish great things and, if I work hard enough, maybe I can even change the world...
This quote has been credited to many great women over time, including Eleanor Roosevelt, Marylyn Monroe, Anne Boleyn, and, Unknown.
Unknown... Some of the most powerful quotes I’ve ever read are credited to Unknown. Unknown has motivated and inspired me, and I’m sure so many others for centuries. Yet, being ‘unknown’ was often the only way a woman could share her story.
Today, we can share our words, quotes, and stories, thanks to these courageous women unwilling to quiet their voice — brave and bold women who refused to do what they were told.
These women stood by their own side, guided by the confident-knowing they felt when they looked deep within.
India and Rar is the story of my confident-knowing and a celebration of the bravery, courage, and soul-tingling vulnerability I share with the important women in my life.
To some, they are known as mothers, daughters, sisters, grandmothers, granddaughters, and wives. To me, they are connection and belonging.
All of our pieces are named after these extraordinary women I am lucky enough to call friends. Women who see the world for all its limitless glory, playing with boundaries and the infinite opportunity that lays before them.
India and Rar is more than timeless jewellery and nurturing knitwear; it is the confident-knowing I feel deep within, it is belonging, connection, courage and fear in all its soul-tingling glory.
Thank you for being part of this beautiful journey with me,
A proud badly behaved woman
