Slow fashion high-quality jewellery
It is often said that friends are the family we choose. The wine to our life. The Yin to our Yang. True friendship is one of the greatest gifts we receive in life. And from time to time these friendships, whether they are near or far, often or rare, many or just one – they all equally need a reminder, a gesture, an expression of how much they matter.
Friendship bracelets come in a pair – do you remember, like in the good old times? One for you and one your best friend to share and to let her know how much she matters to you.
This bracelet carries the powerful energy of the Herkimer diamond, which can be programmed and encoded with all the love and intentions you wish for your best friend and your friendship.
We could all use a reminder every once in a while of how much we matter. May this be it.
Herkimer Quartz Diamonds are the high energy seekers of the crystal world. Unusually transparent with a brilliant sparkle, they manifest pure, solid Light and are powerful amplifiers of spiritual energy. As perfect conduits of the universal Life Force, they are exceptional healing crystals, and are used in meditations, dream and vision work, and advanced spiritualisation applications.
Herkimer Diamonds are the most powerful of all Quartz crystals. Being doubly terminated, they have the ability to not only transmit their own energies, but to receive spiritual energy and to amplify and focus it intently. They are reported to be harder than all other Quartz, giving them the strength and durability to handle difficult challenges beyond the scope of other Quartz crystals. What they lack in physical size, they more than make up for in spirit energy.
This mineral owes its name to Herkimer County, New York, USA, the principal place where it is found. The small, double-terminated crystals are short and stubby, formed in a hard rock matrix giving them their strength. They may be exceptionally clear and colourless, or contain rainbow inclusions, air bubbles, or black carbon deposits. Some are smoky rather than clear, and similar-looking crystals have been found at other sites, but generally do not have the same hardness or high gloss of genuine Herkimer Diamonds.

I am so happy with my new jewellery from myJoy. I love my pretty necklace and earrings with the most precious coloured flowers. They are a real statement set that look like designer jewellery. They stay amazing and look so good. Definitely a recommendation to buy.

We want your jewellery to keep in tip-top shape for years to come!
Here are our tips on caring for your myJoy jewellery pieces:
- A good rule of thumb: put your jewellery on last (after makeup, perfume, sunscreen etc.) before you leave home, and take it off first thing when you get home.
- Keep your jewellery away from water, lotions/creams, perfume, sweat and other liquids. If your piece gets wet, wipe it dry. Avoid swimming, bathing or showering with jewelry on.
- Store your piece individually in a pouch or a ziploc bag.
- If your piece oxidizes / tarnishes, you can scrub the tarnish away gently with a toothbrush and warm water.

There’s no way to tell the story of myJoy without telling about my own journey.
Since I moved from Brazil to the Netherlands at the end of 2016, I live in a constant process of self-awareness. Getting out of a safe and comfortable life to live the unknown is an incredible adventure, but having my roots pulled out of the ground and not being able to stick them in again for a long time is really scaring.
I am a psychologist, and for more than 25 years I worked in Education area. I thought my mission in life was clear, but then, in the blink of an eye, my husband's work brought our family to this new country and my whole world was shaken.
When I moved, I left a steady and well-paid job, a leadership position for which I was respected, and spent many months without a penny, needing to ask my husband for money even to buy bread. Quite an apprenticeship for those who work since the age of 14 and have always had their own money.
Since then, I have been experiencing a painful and incessant search for the path I want to follow. I have worked as a mystery shopper, academic staff, waitress, sales advisor and photographer in a museum. I found that we can't just do what we like, because sometimes we have to run any business to have our own money. But the fact is that working to survive is not something that feeds my soul, and this feeling of losing a lot by choosing to change countries is dangerous ground.
I had moments when my heart was full of doubts and insecurities. I found myself banging my head against a brick wall trying to find my way (and myself) in this new world. I was in the air for a long time before I finally found my feet and started myJoy.
Thus, myJoy is not only about my name, but also a way of being reminded, every day, of the need to move on until I find what really makes me happy.
Now I work with dreams, feelings, moments, heartbeats and help put a smile on people's faces. Believe me: jewellery has the power to show you who you are, reflects your personality, reveals your state of mind and boosts your self-esteem.
If you struggle with knowing what your personal style is, or you want one-on-one help to find the best jewellery for a particular outfit, simply send an email for information about receiving a free consultation or hosting a Styling Party.
myJoy's purpose is to find jewellery that suits both you and your lifestyle, and I want you to love what you wear.
Let the jewellery inspires you and also help you find your joy!
