New Life Rings™ make a beautiful group gift for baby showers and Mother blessings.  Part ritual and part heirloom, these rings are a beautiful and unique way to welcome a new baby to the world.

  • The mother receives handmade silver stacking rings to disperse amongst her loved ones to wear until the baby is born.  
  • After the birth, everyone returns the rings in the provided stamped, pre-addressed envelopes.
  • I melt all the rings down into a single piece of metal and create a piece of jewelry for the baby! 

The finished piece of jewelry makes an unforgettable gift to give to the baby when they get older, a treasured heirloom they can keep for the rest of their life as a connection to all the people who lovingly awaited their arrival to the world. 




Parents can choose from one of the following designs:

  • Circle of life (unify the rings into one single ring)
  • Tree of life
  • Zodiac Signs/Constellations
  • Star/Starburst
  • Crescent Moon
  • Leaf or flower
  • Heart (Symbol or Anatomical)

Other design customizations and upgrades are available at varying additional costs.  These include, but are not limited to:

  • Custom Design
  • Adding birthstones
  • Engraving
  • Gold accents or Gold-plating
  • Gold Chain
  • Dividing Metal to make additional charms for mother/family



"A charm to protect the wearer against real or imagined calamities and threats to life...and a psychological means of combatting the hostility of both the real and the spirit-filled world."

Why do we need ritual jewelry?

In THE WILD EDGE OF SORROW, Francis Weller writes:

"For most of our history, rituals provided the means by which the community would address the need for healing and renew the people's relationship with the place where they lived...Today, in the absence of communal rituals that hold and sustain our psychic lives, we often unconsciously fall into ritualized behaviors...In the end we will either participate in ritual deliberately, which binds us to soul, community, nature, and the sacred, or we will be reduced to repetitive patterns of addiction, compulsion, or routines lacking the artistry and renewal of genuine ritual."

A word on cultural appropriation:

I make a concerted effort to steer away from imagery plucked from the sacred practices of others.  I have a deep love and respect for, and in some instances even a personal connection to, the sacred symbols and patterns of various shamanic traditions and ancient civilizations.  As much as I love ancient Egyptian imagery, shipibo ayahuasca patterns, and the design aesthetics of traditional American Indian silversmithing, I very intentionally omit such elements from my work. 

I do at times incorporate some Nordic and Celtic symbology as that is my own blood lineage and, as such, I feel in integrity in my "sacred image use rights," so to speak. Mostly however, I use designs and patterns sourced from elemental, archetypal, cosmic/astrological, botanical, and animal imagery - images and symbols that belong to all.  I also create my own sigils and symbols and share them freely with others to use.

All of this said, I am human and make mistakes and have oversights - all the freakin' time, in fact! As Brene Brown says, "I'm here to get it right, not be right." So to anyone reading this and viewing my jewelry collections: if any element of my designs feels offensive or appropriated from your culture, I openly invite and request that you contact me about it directly.  I want to hear your perspective, learn, and make it right.  You can email me directly at
