“If I create from the heart, nearly everything works; if from the head, almost nothing.” - Marc Chagall
This quote really speaks to us. Karina never imagined herself as an artist. She identified herself as a businesswoman, a coach, a consultant, a parent, a spouse, and many other things, but being an artist was never on the list.
Lana spent the first half of her career in museums working in curatorial, programmatic, and leadership roles. She was surrounded by creatives and artists and considered herself to be one as well. Yet she didn’t make time to unleash her own creativity as an artist, always taking care of more pressing priorities.
It is with great honor that we have accepted the gift of creativity and artistry from the Universe. We believe that the Universe chose us to hand-craft our pendulums because we were open to creating them from our hearts rather than our heads. This is the reason why our joyful journey of crafting the pendulum — our art form — continues to inspire us and those who are called to cross our paths.
If you have met us in person, you know that we are both passionate about the benefits of working with a pendulum. They are ancient tools that can serve us well in modern times by allowing our intuition to have a voice. Additionally, we believe that since pendulums are personal tools that are an extension of our higher selves, they should be beautiful and loved. Yes, anything weighted on a string can be used as a pendulum. However, bonding with your pendulum is of utmost importance so you want to love it like your favorite heirloom. That is why we were called to transform pendulums into art.
When each pendulum is crafted, we believe that there’s a person out there who is destined to own it and love it. Many of you reading this have found your perfect pendulum already. If you are feeling called, please share your story with us.
“The artist is a receptacle for emotions that come from all over the place: from the sky, from the earth, from a scrap of paper, from a passing shape, from a spider’s web.” Pablo Picasso
We draw inspiration from visions, dreams, emotions, downloads, nature, history, fashion, architecture, art, and much more. The drive to create is undeniable. It is a process to truly let go of expectations and allow intuitive guidance to come through and shine. Lana is often inspired by ancient cultures, peoples of the world, mysticism, nature, and history. She’s drawn to earthy designs and creates beauty, symmetry, and balance from unexpected combinations. Karina loves sparkle, old-world intricacy, and vintage charm. Her designs tend to be glamorous, vibrant, and perfectly eclectic. The pendulums that we craft are never the same because we both have individual styles and allow ourselves to be divinely guided in the creative process. We love the unique creations that each artist brings to our HeartCentric collection.
“Great things are done by a series of small things brought together.” Vincent Van Gogh
This quote highly resonates with the HeartCentric philosophy. Each pendulum is a tool that was brought together by small, yet intentional and random components. When the pendulum finds its rightful owner, the journey inward begins. Investing the time to establish a pendulum practice and seek guidance from within is what begins to awaken each person to their own truth. When we show up as our true, authentic selves in this crazy world, we begin to change it for the better. Our mission is to awaken humanity to its truth, potential, and power. This magic happens when we each go within for guidance, and a pendulum is a perfect tool for that journey. But remember it is just that: a tool. The power is within YOU!
