This collection can be seen as an organic extension of the concept of Wabi-Sabi implemented in PHERES’s perception and approaches. It is a design that sets a visualization of our lives and the PHERES woman’s journey of learning, living and loving not only every one she encounters and inspires, but starting with the source of empowerment – her very own self. A refined individual who practices self-empowerment, balance, and healthy change – is an individual that knows herself extremely well, and aspiring to constantly improve herself, empower herself as a life-long journey of Art. An ever-growing, self-realized, freethinking individual who best navigates within her expanding environment and empowers everyone else she encounters.
In the slipstream called Life, the only constant is Change.
‘Transcendence’ is a Collection celebrating resonances from ancient cultures and wisdom reflecting incomparable refinement in the Here and Now. It embodies a quintessentially-realistic, attainable personification of ‘realistic excellence as lifestyle’. It’s an awakening, realizing that the perfection we were (engineered to perceive as such, previously) striving for and aspiring towards over the past few centuries does not ground. This collection sings today’s very exploration/realization that the only perfection is imperfect.
Each piece is a canvas unveiling immersive, experiential awakenings. The textures, nuances, hypnotic poetry, and brilliant voices of the gems give a face to your life’s brushstrokes. It’s a design process that practices Zen influenced ideology transformed into a pragmatic lifestyle. ‘Transcendence’ does not erase Her past, but celebrates the release from it, through remembering everything it took to ‘get there’/to ‘get here’ and take all her formerly ‘broken’ pieces/life lessons – now galvanized through the most powerful alchemy of all/Gold – into the future and beyond.
‘Transcendence’ is a profound, interwoven beauty representing layers, each an acquired intelligence filtering through these very apparent ‘breaks’. It strengthens what has survived – ‘You’ – into being the consummate beauty of today. “Seeing” this transformative process becomes the very ‘gold’ within the collection. As in Kintsugi, the existential glue/precious metal in ‘Transcendence’ that celebrates the confluence of all the pieces in your life is gold.
