I'm the founder and designer here at Studio Fortitudo. I am committed to designing jewelry that empowers you and helps you to see the beauty in your own heart. At Studio Fortitudo we remind you that you are an incredible and worthy soul created by the Universe to fulfill your purpose and that the world needs you!
I get it if you're feeling like your life is okay, and you're relatively content, but something amazing and more authentic, a calling, is swirling in your heart. You've got big dreams. But something is holding you back. Maybe it's fear or feelings of unworthiness or imposter syndrome. Whatever it is, and wherever it's coming from, it's limiting your growth and taking away your power and crushing the belief in yourself.
I've been there. I've felt all of those things. I ignored my dreams. I'm still there sometimes but honestly, I work on it every single day. I have to be very careful how I talk to myself. I wish I had known years ago how my thoughts would affect my life and what to accept as the truth. I had to study and learn and l eventually got past the self-doubt and the need for perfection. I'm so over it! I'm no longer ignoring my dreams and I'm listening to what I want for me.
My limiting beliefs were holding me back, and made me feel less than worthy. I felt like I would never achieve my dreams.
But when I looked around and saw people just like me doing amazing and fulfilling things and living out their dreams and doing the exact things that I dreamt about doing, I realized that the only difference between us was that they believed in themselves and their gifts and they weren't letting fear stop them. They were willing to do it messy and imperfectly, and learning how to do it and gain clarity WHILE they were doing it. I realized that none of the gifts that the Universe wanted for me were going to be realized unless I started to truly believe in myself, took action to find clarity, and pushed through fear.
I was tired of playing small.
So here I am.
I'm not a trained gemologist (working on that). I'm a self-taught jewelry designer. I learned everything by researching and working on my skills, asking questions, and having an insatiable curiosity. I'm working hard on my dreams and it feels so good my friend!
I want the same for you. I truly do! The universe needs what you have to offer right now! You are a piece of the puzzle of the universe. Come along with us! Tap into your inner power and your dreams will become your reality. Start by believing in yourself and then, trust me, you will attract so many beautiful people and opportunities to your life!
