I've met my goal of $5500 and the number continues to rise! Thank you so much to all who have backed this project and who've spread the word and continue to do so. I am so grateful. My project has till April 5th to collect funds and many projects on Kickstarter go well beyond their original goal. I'm so happy the nail biting part is over and I'm so excited to see the final total!
Chakra is Sanskrit for “wheel”. It is a concept best described as centers of spiritual energy within the body. There are 7 major Chakras (scroll down to read about them). Each one has specific associations with certain elements, glands, colors, gemstones and physical and emotional disorders. Each one is also related to a personality trait, which can manifest in positive or negative ways depending if its energy is balanced or imbalanced.
These wraps act as visual reminders to help you focus on whichever Chakra you’re working to balance. I love wearing mine! I started making this line over a year ago. You can read about how it started HERE.
They can be worn as bracelets, anklets or even a necklace - just wrap it and tie it. My friends enjoy wearing them during their yoga practice. Jewelry that can easily transition from yoga class to lunch to a night on the town! These have been very popular among yogis and several yoga instructors have asked me about making them easily available to them and their students.
I’m hoping to launch my Chakra wraps into production. The funds raised through your pre-order of the wraps and the other pledge rewards will be used to pay to have the charms cast right here in Vermont. I'd like to get these into yoga shops and studios across the country. I would like more people to enjoy wearing these wraps and to consciously take part in balancing their energy, whether for health problems, emotional blocks or the stress of every day life. Why not have fashionable reminders?
of sterling silver, they have a lovely natural edge. My logo (which consists of my initials and the Chinese symbol for forever) is on the back. Each one comes on a long handmade silk strand (the color depends on the Chakra you choose). Each one also comes with a small affirmation card.
Silver has beneficial properties as well and is believed to remove negative energy from the body. Perfect for any age, they are unisex and make great gifts! 9/16" diameter. 30" silk strand.

Risks and challenges
I'm very confident in this project. Casting has a fairly quick turn around time and I've given myself enough time to put the orders together. This is something I already do; this is just going to be on a much larger scale but I have everything lined up to make it go smoothly. Selling my Chakra Kahn jewelry line this past year and seeing the great response to it is what has encouraged me to take this step. The challenge will be getting the word out, and getting people to support the project and/or spread the word.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
