Hello! I'm Meri Tomasa and I'm thrilled you've stopped by to check out my Kickstarter project! I'm going to tell you how I discovered the Atlantis Ring and why my proposal is so unique and different from the ones available on the market. It’s a product that I’ve already validated locally (Spain) and from which I’ve obtained great ratings. But my Treasury Factory has been shortened out... It was born several years ago in the garage of my mother's house and today I need to grow up. That's why I’m starting this campaign on Kickstarter: I'm looking for help to improve my workshop infrastructure and bring this special treasure to every corner of the planet. I want to put my craft, my gift and my passion, at the service of everyone. Can you help me to make a dream come true?
The Atlantean is a type of ring with a long history full of legends; for many it’s a magical treasure. After years of research my proposal is a high-quality replica of the most original design of the Atlantean Ring both in materials, as in geometric elements, also in its elaboration procedure, and in its properties.
The most authentic Atlantis Ring:
I get the three colors by melting the three metals in their respective sections and then modeling each ring by hand. The result is a solid jewel of 18kt gold and/or sterling silver and/or electrolytic copper.
The most artisanal Atlantis Ring:
I work the value of slow jewelry: buy less, buy higher quality and added value, buy at more ethical prices. For a dignified work, from conception to creation, to create products that make us grow and live better. For an eco-friendly jewelry that builds a better world.
The most esoteric Atlantis Ring:
Because it gathers in a small treasure much of the laws of sacred geometry and, especially, because its design is based on the golden ratio or phi number.
The most exclusive Atlantis Ring:
To be able to make it in two or three solid metals it is necessary to manufacture it by hand in a jewelry workshop, one by one. Making the Atlantis Ring in a single metal allows its manufacture in series, trough molds. If you take a look online, you will find many Atlantean rings made like this and finished with a partial plated of other metals, a plated that eventually disappears. My proposal is to move away from mass affairs and offer you a consciously crafted treasure, unique and exclusive, strong and lasting.
The Atlantis Ring models of The MeriTomasa's Treasures Factory share the same design, based on the golden ratio. The only thing that changes is the metal or precious metals which what I model each ring with.
This change is not trivial: it implies substantial differences in price since one gram of gold is much more expensive than a gram of silver. It also involves substantial differences depending on what you want to wear your ring for.
Gold relates to the Sun (or God) and the active energy of masculinity. Silver relates to the Moon (or Earth) and the passive energy of femininity and fertility. Copper relates to Venus, goddess of Love, and is a great conductor of heat, electricity or psychic energy.
Therefore, the decision to purchase one model or another may fall to the esoteric function you want to give to your Atlantis Ring.
Notice about copper oxidation. The most authentic Atlantean Ring is the three-metal Ring: gold, silver and copper. However, you should keep in mind that copper is a material that oxidizes with the skin contact, sweat or cosmetics. It doesn't always happen (it depends on the skin reaction and sweating of each person, or the use of certain cosmetics) but it is a characteristic to consider. The gold, silver and copper version, is my favorite version of the ring and the one I recommend most, especially for esoteric or personal growth uses. But if you prefer to avoid the possible problems of copper, my recommendation is that you opt for the yellow gold, silver and rose gold version (which replaces the copper band with a rose gold band).
Sacred geometry: the golden ratio and the Phi number
I'm neither a magician nor a priestess. I'm a jeweler. But I am very interested in the subject of personal growth and I’ve done several courses, so both from a technical and spiritual point of view I’ve documented about the original design and the most optimal manufacturing process of the Atlantis Ring.
The Atlantis Ring is a piece of sacred geometry. I mean, from the branch of mathematics that studies geometric forms related to divinity or, in general, with everything that transcends the physical, such as mystique or philosophy. It focuses on the forms that are present in the nature created by the gods (for example, the leaf of a tree) or that must be present in the design of sacred works created by men, such as temples (from the Parthenon of Athens to the Gothic European cathedrals)... or the Atlantis Rings.
I'm sure there are many concepts of sacred geometry that you know. One is the Pi number: 3,1416.... Another different one is the Phi number: 1,6180339... The Phi Number it’s also known by many other names: gold number, extreme and average reason, golden reason, half a golden, golden ratio and divine proportion. The golden number and the golden section are present in all regular or semiregular geometric objects where there is pentagonal symmetry or the square root of five appears in some way.
Atlantis Ring Symbology: How is sacred geometry, golden ratio, and Phi number applied to Atlantis Ring design?
What makes the Atlantis Ring unique is that it gathers in a small artifact much of the guidelines of sacred geometry, and especially that the entire design of the ring is based on the golden section or Phi number, while being built with precious metals that balance each other out. Hence its use as an amulet.
The fundamental function of the Atlantis Ring is to generate energy fields on one of the meridians that flow through our organism and flow into our fingers, so, from there they radiate to the entire tying of our bioplasmic field. That's why nothing in its design is free: each of its materials and shapes has its motif and meaning:
From a bioenergy point of view, the approach is that the 4 holes (north, south, east, west) are the pathways through which energies flow: the positive ones inward through the holes of the isosceles triangles and the negative ones to the outside through the holes located in the north and south, thus forming a bioenergetic circle that permanently transforms negative energies into positive, which flow and multiply through the infinity line located inside the ring.
On the outside, the three northern triangular sections, in the so-called “Wave Form Luxor", form a grid that absorbs the energies and distributes them towards the six geometric pyramids and the two isosceles triangles in which they flow, acting as scrubbers and conductors of these energies to the side holes in which they flow in turn.
The Legend of Atlantis
The Atlantean Ring takes its name from the civilization of Atlantis, a military and cultural power that Plato describes in his Timeo and Critias dialogues, and places "beyond the Columns of Hercules" approximately 9,000 years before Solon, that is, approximately 10,000 years before Christ.
According to Plato, Solon learned of the existence of Atlantis through Egypt. It describes it as an ancient civilization characterized by a great cultural and scientific evolution, which allowed it to conquer much of western Europe and North Africa, until it was stopped by the city of Athens. At that very moment a catastrophe made the island and the Atlantean armies disappear at the same time. Plato uses the myth of the destroyed island to articulate a parable about a civilization that, blinded by its own power and splendor, challenges the gods themselves, so they are punished and destroyed in a day and a night.
There are no proven historical sources attesting to the actual existence of Atlantis. For example, Aristotle, Plato's disciple, believes that the story of Atlantis is a fiction, invented by her master: "The man who dreamed it made her disappear".
Today the scientific community considers it a legend created by Plato himself, or perhaps a myth that the Athenian philosopher collected from the popular culture of his time. In this sense, Atlantis is a "Mytheme": a widespread archetype in the mythologies of many religious, cultural and philosophical traditions: the history of a hugely advanced ancient civilization that suddenly collapses and disappears by a natural catastrophe, punished by the gods for their excessive pride or ungodly character. It is the same mytheme that generates the myth of the Universal Flood in the Bible. Usually, a mytheme has part history and part of aesthetics: it is based on a reading with religious, cultural or philosophical tints of events that occur in remote times of which we hardly have documentation.
Howard Carter and the Atlantean Ring
The discovery of the Atlantean Ring is almost as controversial as the very existence of Atlantis. According to some sources, his find in an Egyptian tomb corresponds to the Marquis d'Agrain, a French Egyptologist, in 1860, in the Valley of the Kings, and subsequently took the property of the French radiesestist André de Bélizal, who, with his family, popularized him and marketed. But the most popular version of his find is the one starring the English explorer and archaeologist Howard Carter.
On November 5, 1922, in the Valley of the Kings, Howard Carter found the most famous royal tomb, Pharaoh Tutankhamun, the so-called "pharaoh boy". On the 24th of the same month, Carter and his sponsors, the English nobleman Lord Carnavon, dug to the sealed door where a world-famous name appeared today, TUT-ANK-AMON, and a legend sculpted to frighten the burglars, the so-called "curse of the Pharaoh": « Death will come upon light wings upon those who hinder Pharaoh's peace ».
And curiously many people who had contact with Tutankhamun's tomb died in strange and very young circumstances. And from this strange curse, neither were curators of different exhibitions where the remains of the pharaoh were exhibited. The only person who survived this spate of strange deaths was precisely the “guiltiest” of all, Howard Carter, who died in London, aged 66, on March 2nd, 1939, almost 17 years after desecrating Tutankhamun's tomb. Carter was in possession of a ring, an amulet against all the misfortunes that the most powerful wizards or witches could spell him: an Atlantean ring. The English Egyptologist had found it years earlier in one of the tombs of the Valley of the Kings, early in his career. It was the tomb of a priest named Jua, where the bodies of him and his wife had appeared in perfect condition.
The power of the Atlantis Ring
Perhaps there was never a civilization called Atlantis, although every legend is often based on real events known by oral tradition in the form of myth. That legend, however, can be a good basis for growing as a person. As much as the cultivation of mathematics, Reiki, Feng Shui or personal growth. Probably, the power of the Atlantis Ring doesn’t derive from the magical formulas of physics, mathematics or divinity, but from the magic that is in each of us. In my opinion, the power of the Atlantis Ring doesn’t depend on the magic of the afterlife. It depends on the magic in you, and how you could work it and make it grow.
Your ring should fit your finger comfortably; snug enough so that it will not fall off, but loose enough to slide over your knuckle.
I will offer sizes 3 to 13.5. To find yours I first suggest going to your local jeweler. There you will find a commercial team that will be happy to take a couple of minutes to take the size. If instead of a jewelry store you do it in two, it will be better: that way you will be more sure of your measure. If that isn't possible, take a look at this pdf.
You do NOT need to know your ring size right now to be able to order. At the end of my project, I will send an email with detailed instructions to discover the size of your ring. You can order today and figure out your size later.
The future of The Treasures Factory is only possible with YOUR help! I need your support to get this project going. With the funds received, I will be able to make my first major production and launch my brand. I have high hopes and I don't plan to stop here. If I reach my Kickstarter goal, the Atlantis Rings will only be the first great treasure I'm going to offer you. Choose your reward today and help me fly!
Share this project through your social networks and with everybody you think might be interested in it. Every bit of help will be very useful ;)
Risks and challenges
The main risk of this Kickstarter and also the MeriTomasa's Treasures Factory is me. Well, my hands, my eyes and me. They are the main assets of my jewelry workshop, and that's why I strive to take care of them every day with a formula that has nothing peculiar but works great for me: gym, family, friends and a charming boyfriend.
The main challenge is to maintain the project despite the difficulties involved in starting a small artisanal jewelry workshop with online sales. The only option to keep it going, is to grow. And grow on a strong foundation to be able to sustain the investment I need to give my infrastructure a boost. The solution to that challenge is this Kickstarter: can you help me give that push to The MeriTomasa's Treasures Factory?Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
